On a lighter side today…I was reading an article from the magazine Realtor about some of the strangest questions asked of realtors. These made me smile and I hope they do you as well.
- “How much are the payments with the late fee?”
- Concerned about their bargaining position, one client asked ” If we make an offer, won’t the sellers know we are interested?” Yikes.
- When writing a contract for a beautiful property with a small lake on it the buyers asked if the water fowl could be included in the “other options to remain with the property at no additional cost.”
- Personally I was asked by one of my sellers, “How many showing should I allow a day?”
While I’m sure all these questions were very important to the questioner, they do provide us with a bit of humor for the day. They likely did not come out exactly as the speaker intended but I believe this is a good lesson as well. Do not be afraid to ask any questions. I am convinced these people were very sincere about their questions and while it may have provided us with a giggle today, the answers would certainly have helped the clients as they evaluated their situations.
If you have any real estate questions, I would love to answer them for you. Please call me at 214-769-2947 and I would be happy to help.
Have a great day!
