Slip Slidin Away

By
Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties

Just spent an interesting weekend, showing homes.  Last week's storm came down in a granular form that was more ice than snow.  The days of frigid temperatures, that followed, kept the ice solid, with the sun just managing to glaze the top to a realllllly smooth surface.

This being school vacation week, many homeowners were not around, this weekend, to clear their driveways and walkways.  Did they leave, hoping the sun would come out to do their job.  Ditto, for the vacant homes.  Where were their REALTORS?  Someone needed to arrange to chop a path to the front door.

I spent Saturday with a transferee, who needed to find a place, before his wife and children arrive.  He was game to skate across the frozen lawns with me.  Sunday's couple were relos, on a home finding trip.  After sliding across two properties, the wife announced that she was too scared of getting hurt and eliminated every other home that didn't have a clear path to the door.

I had logged in, or made appointments to see all these homes.  Someone knew I was coming.  If there was no one to chop the ice, some sand or salt would have done the trick.  Did they think their homes/listings were so enticing that we would chance breaking our necks to see them.

Funny way to get a house sold.

Marilyn,

You know the funny thing? I live in Malibu CA, and the weather is boring. Sometimes it rains a little, sometimes a cold on-shore breeze, Santa Ana Winds scare the heck out of us due to fires, other than those few times it is perfect weather. Oh how I miss the seasons that you have there. Lance
