Cash Buyer

When you are a single young mother of five girls and a brand new Realtor, you chase deals where you find them.  Often you don’t yet have the good sense to verify facts.  For three full days I drove a cash buyer around town, dealing with her kids and her mother and her sister, looking at every available home in her $350,000 price range.  On a hot afternoon, I pulled into a 7-11 to buy everyone drinks, and turned to my ‘client’ and asked her if she needed anything.  She said, “Oh, yes, Mimi, would you be a dear and pick up a lottery ticket for me?  It’s the only chance I would ever have of buying one of these beautiful homes.”

    • Can you imagine? Can you even IMAGINE doing that to someone? The truth of the matter was, it took me several minutes to realize that she was SERIOUS! You better believe that one of the first things I say to a Cash Buyer anymore is . . . ‘show me the money’ 🙂
