Pass the whacky tabacca, ganja and mary jane my way please oh but hold on the snacks as I’m headed to the beach in a few weeks.
Do you ever get one of those laugh out loud, cause you to snort moments when you open an offer on a listing? It happened to me recently and even better it sent my clients into fits of laughter as well. The reason? An offer $100,000 below list price. Now the owners could have been insulted but I warned them up front when I called them that I had news that would make their day. Not in the way they were expected but it would indeed make their day.
Setting the stage can make the difference between a %$#& reaction and a good chuckle. In this case the response was obvious. Northern Virginia and the entire DC Metro area is one of the parts of the country where the real estate market is up in price. In fact in many cases homes are receiving multiple offers. So when one arrives that is so far off the market all you can do is smile, laugh and move on.
This the laughter you heard as we sent the offer to the shredder.
