Apparently the home sales market is perking up, because after not fielding a realtor call on my FSBO house since November, I received two today. Either the market is looking up, or I should not ever renew my Craigslist ad on a Tuesday. Either or. Anyhoo...
Phone rings (again)
HIM: Hi, Shawna*. My name is Slick Dick** and I'm a buyer's agent with Eff Me Realty**. I'm sure you've gotten your share of phone calls from realtors, ha ha, but I'm not trying to solicit your listing. I work exclusively with buyers. I like to keep my finger on the pulse of the market and stay aware of everything that is available, which is how I saw that your house is currently for sale. Where are you moving to?
ME: We're planning on purchasing a townhouse at the Beautiful People Live Here Complex. And we already have a realtor that we're working with for that.
HIM: Great. Listen, I'll get right to the point of my phone call. What can I do to help you sell your home?
ME: Well, you know, actually, it would be extremely helpful if you brought over a buyer, one who has money, and they bought my house. That would be awesome.
HIM: Um uh um okay...
ME: So, great, thanks so much for calling, and if someone comes along and wants to buy my house, we'd love to have you bring them over. Thanks so much. Buh-bye.
Oh, sometimes I just crack myself up.
*My name is Shana, rhymes with Hannah. Not Shawna rhymes with Fauna or Shaina rhymes with Braina.
**Names have not been changed to protect the innocent. Because? No such thing as an innocent salesman. Yuck yuck yuck.
