A few days ago, there were two scheduled showings at 2911 Montebello Terrace, and the temperatures were in the triple digits.
Of course, I got there early to make sure the Air Conditioning was set, the shades open and turn on lights.
Put the key in the lock and found my seller in the house trying to leave way before I arrived.
She wanted to make me and the potential buyers feel welcome. She quickly went back to the refrigerator and handed me an ice-cold bottle of water before she ran out the door.
The house was in perfect show condition and... there were snacks in several rooms.
After touring the back yard, tiki bar, summer kitchen, pool, and koi pond, one of the buyers opened the outdoor cooler surprised to find iced drinks, and I said: "please help yourself!''
We were plenty hot and went in to tour the cool house.
There seemed to be some interest, and we sat around sipping our drinks and nibbling on the grapes and goodies.
The touches of this seller made the house so inviting that the buyers stayed longer than usual. It was a perfect time to find out their needs, talk about the pros of this house, financing, the sale of their home, and their time-line.
The snack display added to the warmth and caring shown by this home's owner.
If these potential buyers do make an offer... it will be attributed to
The power of a snack!
