You’ve GOT To Be Kidding Me!

Guest houseT.G.I.F. (Thank Goodness It’s Friday– yeah it’s a little different than the original version)

This is my very first Punchy Friday post so it may not be quite what I intend for a Punchy Friday post. I guess with practice it may evolve and offer it’s own personality.

Anyway, here’s my post, short as it is:

‘You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me!’

I overheard some agents talking in the office this week. Apparently someone had been speaking with a seller at a listing appointment and the seller told the agent the property had a guesthouse.

The agent looked surprised. She had pulled the county records and there was no indication of a second structure. When they went outside she discovered the ‘Guest House’ was actually a Teds Sheds shed that had been put up on concrete blocks. Ahhhhhh, all the comforts of home. And we’re supposed to keep a straight face as we take buyers through the property and point out the guest house?

    It really is amazing some of the “amenities” our sellers expect us to market.

    I showed a house yesterday that was supposed to have six bedrooms but we could only find 4. After a call to the listing agent he said the seller insisted that the downstairs family rooms could be split into two more bedrooms so he listed it as 6 bedrooms.

    I just stopped by after adding your link to my “Ripening on the Real Estate Tomato Vine” post.

    Maggie – Quite impressive – I’m so happy things are going well for you. Hope we can catch up soon. Missed you yesterday – but you were there in spirit.

    I’ve seen a few sheds that have been fixed up quite nicely w/ electric, A/C. tiled floors, water, etc. But yes, “guest house” can be quite the relative term.
