People Are Listening



This week I wrote a post about a sale that was contingent on natural gas being brought into a home. The buyer would not move forward without knowing  this kind of  cooking was available. There were a lot of calls made by the buyer and the agent without any solution.

I posed this question on my radio show and got excellent advice from callers both during and after show.

Call BGE ask for  'new service' and request a 'site review'.

It is easier and saves time for the present owner to make these arrangements.

In the next  ten days the owner is meeting a contractor at the property to evaluate and install the gas meter. This will take away the one little contingency that was important to the buyer.

And after settlement, the buyer can have her new gas stove installed.

Problem solved.

People are listening to the radio.

Do you have a question about a home

Morning Margaret.

I like a gas stove, while my wife likes electric.  Care to take a guess on which one we have?

What I like about being able to put a question out there is the large pool of information that can come forth from the collective thinking.  When I first became an agent in 1981, my wise broker taught me something very important.  He said folks will ask a lot of questions.  If you have the answer give it.  If you don't, don't wing it, instead say, "I don't have the answer for that right now, but I will get it, and get back to you!"
