One of my favorite types of buyer clients are those who are also planning a wedding.
They're excited. It's typically their first home purchase. Their lives are enmeshed in a rush of positives - the love, the wedding planning, the honeymoon planning, the thought of owning their first home, their plans for the future.
It is fun to work with these buyers. They want to buy a home. They want to set up their new lives together.
Recently, I was emailing one of my buyer clients who are also planning their wedding. I asked the groom-to-be how the wedding plans were coming along. His response:
"Wedding plans are coming together. Seems like the closer we get to the date the more things there are to do!
Still a few big ticket items but we are cursing along to the finish line pretty good."
Cursing along to the finish line?
That made me laugh. I knew he meant "coursing," but it was still funny. A Freudian slip?
Of course, I called him on this. Fortunately, he saw the humor in it. He then went on to explain that he once applied for a job, and in the cover letter he wrote, "I am defiantly interested in the position." Great. Just what the new boss wants: a defiant employee!
I won't tell his fiance that he's cursing about the wedding plans. I'll leave that up to him!
