Just found her.... a knock down.. full of asbestos... in the next 'up and coming' suburb to the one I was just in (that I can't afford to buy back into!).
Not as big a block... but not the smallest. Don't think I need to do 'big' this time....every square metre is $$$. She'll probably be gone by the time I get out there to see her today. Gotta be quick.
Mr/Ms Real Estate Agent, why don't you put addresses on all your listings?.... please don't say privacy.. you want to sell the house right?... it's not a private process. If it doesn't have an address, I am more likely to skim over the listing.... as the process of extracting the address out of you is time consuming. If you want me to call you for the address, so you can add my details to your database, then why don't you answer my emails (expediently) and get me 'on side'?. .... and why don't you put the land size in the listing? I had one lass the other day email me, in response to my request for information email.. (days later) to say that, with inner city, the land size is 'irrelevant'. What???? I'd say it is critical... right up there with location.
It hasn't changed too much in the past 4 years, this process. I thought that with the market quietening, I'd get more response out of the agents.... but the carcass still must have quite a bit of meat on it. They're not desperate yet..... rats, makes it harder for me! Time to put on those walking shoes and get out there.
Have a great day.
