Surprise House Showing (#3)

We got back home from lunch yesterday, and had a phone message from our Realtor saying another Realtor wanted to "drive by."  I  took that to mean they just wanted to look at the property, but we neatened up things anyway and it was a good thing we did.  A few minutes later a car drove up with the Realtor and two ladies.  She apologized and wondered if we could show the house.  It seems she didn't realize our property was in their price range.  No problem...come on in!

We showed them around the property but I really don't think this older lady could handle this much property...Al and I barely can ourselves.  She is moving from Atlanta and wanted to live in the country, but didn't realize we had Foxes, or Armadillos.  She asked if we had bears?  No. I don't think she had a clue what was involved to maintain this much land.   I think it was more of an afternoon drive in the country and wasted the Realtors time as well as ours.  She liked the house and property real well though.  Oh well, at least now another Realtor has seen our place!


  1. Some people just want to window shop and waste everyone's time.

  2. Dang.. sounds like a waste of time. That realtor should not be wasting the time of seller or her client or herself by showing her homes that she doesn't want or need. Geesh.

    Remember, realtors don't get paid till the deal is done and a home is bought or sold. So that realtor is wasting her own time too by not being clear on what her client wants. Dontcha hate *LookeyLoos*?

  3. That's kind of funny, the lady wants to live in the country, then asks if you have wild animals? Duh!!

    Waste of everyone's time, I'll bet, but who knows?

  4. Perhaps the realtor was a newer one and didn't have a good feeling for what to show.

    But as you said at least another realtor has seen your place.

  5. Sure sounds like a lookey-loo. There are usually a few of them - especially with an open house. But, as you said, at least another realtor saw your house.
