Why no...it's about to collapse around me! The plumbing backs up all the time and the roof leaks. I'm sorry but is this a stupid question? My house is for sale and the sign I put up out front has a plastic container for flyers. So I created some that include a picture of the house and detailed information about the good stuff. You know, ceramic tile, Berber carpet, roof and air conditioner still under warranty, stuff like that. I didn't put the price on it for a reason. So I get a call today, from a nice man, inquiring about the house.
"I just drove by and stopped for a flyer," he says. "I'd like to ask you a couple questions."
"Sure," I respond.
"Do you know what year it is?"
"I think 83 or 85," I reply.
"Is it in good shape?"
Was he kidding? Did he expect to hear me say no? "It's in very good shape." Which is the truth.
"What are you asking for it?"
I tell him, still stunned over his last question. I mean, is it me or was that a stupid question? He thanked me and hung up.
All he really wanted to know was the bottom line, the price.
