One of my real estate cohorts told me that she had a Seller who was hugely burdened by moving. “Good news,” the widowed husband said, “I found my wife’s ashes.” OMG.
Per usual, if you have an open space…you’ll fill it with ‘stuff.’ We all need to pare down.
Speaking of cleaning…I had my annual check-up for my teeth last week. My dentist -for-the-day let me know that he was looking for a house in Alameda. I handed him my card, and went on my happy way….without any cavities.
Because we had the time to get to know each other last week, (he with his mask on and me without a mask, with my mouth wide-opened), I let him know to call me if he had any questions about the market.
He called me on Wednesday, saying he made an appointment with an agent who had a listing that he (and his family) wanted to see. He decided to call me because he didn’t want to work with the same person who was representing the seller. Smart man! It was nice to meet his family: comprised of 3 generations.
Last evening I prepped the PEAD (Property Entry Advisory and Declaration – Visitor) form so we could access the house.
It was a bit weird inside…and it didn’t work for my clients. We agreed that the location was great but…not the right house.
Remember – I let people know that you buy a location…that comes with a house (condo, townhome, TIC). But if the location is not right or the house (condo, townhome, TIC) is not right….we move on!
I love working in this town…because folks are just friendly.
