No-Looking Glass

An agent told me this tale yesterday, which is a classic twist on “two sides to every story.”

A buyer viewed a listed house over the weekend, and told the agent she wasn’t interested in making an offer. Why? It seems that the windows were very dirty, and the buyer took that to mean that the rest of the house wasn’t well-maintained, either.

When giving the feedback to the home seller, the agent berated him for not following her “Get Your Home Ready for Sale”checklist.  The list, she told me, includes a recommendation for a professional window cleaner.  The homeowner responded that the cleaner wanted way too much money to put a ladder in the snow, and besides, who really wants to look out and see all that ice and snow more clearly?

The agent said that in her frustration with his shortsightedness, she slapped herself in the head so hard that “I almost knocked my glasses off.”
