Watch Out! It’s Grasssss! Our Funniest Real Estate Stories and Bloopers.
We have had our share of buyers that have had some strange needs. But, one of our funniest was a man who really had a fear of grass, yes, plain old grass. The first time I noticed this he hopped over the patch of grass between the curb and sidewalk. Not stepping over, an actually full fledged bunny hop. My first instinct was to laugh since I thought he was somehow trying to be funny. But, with the serious look on his face, I decided to keep quiet. As I was showing him the house I started to feel better since other than the hop I just witnessed, he seemed very normal.
Walking A Thin Line Between Car and Home
When we arrived at the next property, he did the same thing! Okay, now my curiosity was peaked but I still kept quiet. I walked up to the front door not paying any mind to the narrow walkway through the front yard. When I turned to talk to him, he was only a few feet from the sidewalk and looked like someone that was forced out on a tight rope!
Does Your Listing Have Grass?
I had to ask. Are you alright? He looked at me and said from now on, I needed to find listings with no or very little grass. Do you know how difficult it is to find a residential property with ‘no grass’! From that point on, I would call each and every listing agent to find out how much grass was on the property. Talk about a conversation starter with my peers!
Needless to say, I found him a very large twin house with a private asphalt driveway, a concrete ‘back yard’, and a wide front walkway. It just goes to show you that there is a home for every buyer.
