Today was one of those days when I thought there’d be no activity on any of my listings, and to my surprise, by the time the day was over, one of them got sold. Once again I was reminded how random and unpredictable each day in the business of real estate sales can be. It looks like I’m going to have a very busy weekend lined up with buyers and sellers. I thought I’d be able to get some work done on one of my personal projects, but I don’t think that’s going to happen.
After receiving all the phone calls and emails on my acreage listing in Thornton that sold right out of the gates, I’d say if I had 10 more of the very same properties, I’d have them all sold. Now let’s get the acreage I have in Fertile sold. Some of the hunters have backed away from it because it’s located right in the town limits of Fertile, but I think I’m going to check to see if bow hunting is allowed. That 5+ acres of grove is certainly a haven for wildlife–especially deer. If Mason City allows bow hunting, one would think a small town like Fertile would allow it as well.
Someone asked me about a particular acreage today which took me back a number of years ago when I was asked to do a walk-thru inspection on it. Thinking about it sent me racing back to the memories/feelings I had while there. I’m sure all of you have had those feelings at one point in time or another of somebody or something watching you–right? Well, for sure I had those creepy feelings when I was in that house as well as walking around the dooryard. There’s no question in my mind that if that site could speak, it would have some hair-raising stories to tell.
Talking about that acreage just now reminded me of a really creepy acreage I visited about eight years ago. The owners who’ve since moved had a number of first-hand experiences to where I think they were actually driven off the site because of the many unexpected, unexplainable, and most noticeable happenings. To tell the truth, while I was there giving it a look over, I didn’t have the slightest warm and fuzzy feeling about it the whole time I was there. When people start telling me about their children having imaginary friends they interact with, that’s when I’m looking for the nearest exit.
It may be a little early for the return of our snowbirds, but I thought it best to have a public open house tomorrow on 2031 Springview Drive which I’ve scheduled for 1:00 – 3:00 PM. Since the seller reduced the price to $109,500, I believe it’s quite the value considering it offers 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a lovely sunroom, attached garage, and all appliances included. You certainly can’t beat its popular west-side location too!
