October is the “almost” month. It’s almost cool outside. It’s almost time to turn on the heat. It’s almost time for Thanksgiving.
As children we looked forward to Halloween. As parents we were worried that our child might be sorry he/she chose the costume that they chose, and we worried we would run out of candy. All three of us have children so Halloween night was chaos when they were little. Do homework, eat dinner and run out the door with older siblings or a parent.
When we go to visit a prospective seller and look around their home, we often use the word “staging.” Many buyers have no idea what that means. They understand de-clutter but what does staging mean to us, in real estate terms? In the words of our favorite stager, Lorelie Brown of Showhomes of Charleston:
Real Estate is our livelihood, our vocation, our profession but most of all it’s a service we provide to the public and we love what we do. I, Franne, have been a REALTOR® for over 20 years and I’m the 2018 Charleston Trident Association of REALTORS®, REALTOR® of the year. I’ve seen Buyer’s markets, Seller’s, markets and miserable markets but I’ve never seen anything like this. In the crash, some real estate agents slept in their cars. If we don’t have a closing, we don’t make any money. If you have nothing for a rainy day and your income stops, you can lose everything. We are no different than anyone else. We take videos, we use social media to remind people we are working from home, we try everything creative we can think of and we stay in close touch with our clients. “Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.” Theodore Roosevelt. This too shall pass, soon, we hope. Stay Safe!
Thank you and stay safe!
Do you remember the story about the goose that laid the golden egg? The owners of the goose were so sure that it’s insides must be full of gold that they killed the goose. Moral of the story, greed is a terrible thing.
