You’re probably wondering what the hell that quote has to do with San Francisco real estate. In this case, a lot. I’ll try to be as simple as possible.
If you own a unit in a condominium and happen to pass by when potential buyers are milling around enjoying the garden setting in the common area, and marveling at how quiet it is, do not come by and say, “Just wait for the parties from that blond girl (nodding head toward unit directly next door). And that dog (blond girl’s pet), oh!………..that dog should be taco.”
As much as you might hate one of your neighbors, it serves no purpose to vent your frustrations to complete strangers (buyers) that might become your neighbors. Their tolerance for noise is likely different than yours, and you never know, they might even love to party with blond girls (they do have more fun after all).
If anything, it is the worst thing you could do, because if the sale doesn’t go through based on what you just said, not only will I come break your knees with my cousin Vincenzo (a.k.a. Vinni), all of your neighbors might do the same, for you just might have caused a longer listing period and subsequent price reductions, which could, in theory, lower the price of your own personal unit when it comes time for you to sell…[insert choice explicative here]!
