Yes, I'd Like To See The Brick House For Sale in Prairie Village

By
Real Estate Agent with BHG Real Estate - Kansas City Homes SP00229578 2007027091

lol - I know this has happened to you too! The phone rings; I answer.

Caller: "Yes, I'd like to see the brick house for sale in Prairie Village. I don't remember the address - aside to wife - honey, what street was that house on?" brick home in prairie village

A conversation ensues while I wait patiently (patiently) for him to come back to the phone call he initiated. It's a bit amusing to listen as they try to retrace their drive to figure out which street they may have been on. More amusing is their combined description of the house they relay to me. "It had beautiful roses in the front yard. It had a chimney. It was on that street with all the trees. It's less than a mile from the coffee shop we go to on Sundays. It had black shutters - no, wait, that one didn't have shutters!"

Lovely people, they've just described about 50 homes for sale in Prairie Village. I want to help them, really I do. Roses blooming in Kansas City 

There are 3 things I can do for them:

  • I can send them an email with all the houses listed for sale in Prairie Village and they can see which house they liked.
  • I can give them an MLS app that they can use to find out everything about the house on their smartphone while they're sitting in front of it
  • I can arrange to meet with them in person and we can both look on the computer to see the house they like.This option allows us to discuss the details of the house intelligently and determine if it will really meet their needs. If it will, we can make an appointment to see it. And we can also see what else is available that they may have missed. 

People do like to drive through the neighborhoods they want to buy in before they're actually prepared to buy. It's fun to look and dream! When they are really and truly ready though, they get an agent to help them. They learn about the steps to buying a house, get their finances in order, and then find the home they'll buy. Their agent will walk them through the process and documents in file  manage all of the documents, negotiating, and closing preparations. Buyers who try to skip this step find the process more overwhelming, confusing, and frustrating than it needs to be.

 

 

Random phone calls? Sure, I'm happy to talk to you! If you allow me, though, I can save you time and money. Use the resources at my disposal to make your home buying experience enjoyable and efficient.

Maria, I think they might have been looking at houses in VA too.  8-)  I do get them from time to time.  "Hi, I'd like to see the house you have listed."  "Which one?"  "The one just off Senseny Rd."  "Which one?"  And so it goes.  It is pretty funny.

Hi Maria,

That is similar to my personal faux pas:

Ring ring. "Hello?"

"Hi, who is this?"

"YOU tell me. You called me."

"I did? What is your name?"

"If you called me, you should know my name..."

Problem is - I was the one who called, but my mind wandered before they answered!

Larry and Sheila, that's easy to do in Kansas City too as all of the cities in our metropolis run into one another!
