Fab Real Estate Blog: Showing Houses in the Rain

Showing Houses in the Rain

Showing houses...Heavy and sudden downpours. 

Never a good combination.  At least today's buyer clients had a good sense of humor about it.  We were drenched.  It was clear and sunny when we walked into the home.  As we were leaving...wow.  It was like standing under a waterfall.  Ran to the car...soaking wet...glad I have leather seats. 

Now I know it's really time to get a haircut.  Yeah, I looked a little funny afterwards.

Oh, well. It's never dull in this business!

Better after you showed the house, unless you had others to see!  I'd love to see that picture!

Laura - Of course we still had another house to see!  And, no, I'm not sharing any pictures...

Don, Oh the wonders of our job, lol....

I just read one of your comments on Adam Waldmans post about his son. I couldn't believe it when I read you had adopted your son, the day before kindergarten.  ME TOO!  I had my son 3 days, and off to school he went. My son is now 20!  Wow, I'm so excited to find someone "like me".

It sounds as if you have been a success with your son. No more special ed. How amazing!  I just added you as an associate and subscribed.  I'm so excited to find someone that has a story similar to mine. Best of luck in all you do.

Elizabeth - watch for my July 3 post - we call it "Dependents' Day"

Adoption is a wonderful thing.  We've adopted three siblings.  The first two came as a package, and the third was a surprise a year later.  Three kids in about 15 months.  It was a wild time.

We'll have to share adoption stories...

DON - I remember doing this once.  While we were laughing a bit, it was a frustrating way to show homes.  There was lightning and thunder and heavy downpoars.  The worst part is that they didn't even buy!  Another time I waited for people in heavy rain, and they never showed because they had driven past the house earlier in the day and didn't like it.  A phone call might have been nice, right?

Adam - The heavy downpours have happened to me a couple of times - usually unexpected, when we're already in a house without the umbrella.  Have you noticed that when this happens, it's in the homes with a very, very long walk from the front door to where you parked your car?
