Bring a Flashlight!
Our team is working with quite a few first time buyers these days! Good news for us as we love the excitement of helping someone find their first home.... but,
Unfortunately a showing instruction that I have been getting over and over lately is bring a flashlight. When I hear that, I cringe.
Don't get me wrong. I totally appreciate the heads up!
Anyone that knows me, knows that I like to be prepared, especially for work....so, hearing the words, bring a flashlight means a bit more than it's a distressed property and all the good and fun things that come with that, but it means a few other things as well!....
It not only means bring a flashlight, but a pair of flats or sneakers would be a really good idea too. It is not easy walking around in a dark home in heels or even worse maybe sandals!
Bring a flashlight.... Okay, so that means, no lights, and it's summer so no worries about heat or a driveway and walkway that hasn't been cleared.... but in these parts the moisture in a closed up home can wreak havoc with the olfactory senses! A trip to the basement in that home is going to mean critters of all kinds....all that moisture and inactivity breeds bugs and spiders......and who knows what else!
When I hear, bring the flashlight, it most certainly means that the lawn is going to be high and that means slacks would be a better choice then walking around with a skirt or shorts.... Will I have to give these buyers a tick check on the way out??
Bring a flashlight equals bring sanitizer too. No explanation necessary!
So, as I go about getting prepared for the weekend, I feel as if I am putting a "what to bring to camp" list together.
I SO hope these foreclosures burn off soon!
LOOKING TO BUY, SELL, RENT OR INVEST?
Give me a call! I know the market and am prepared in every way to help you find what you are looking for!
