Recession: 3, Realtor: 1
A real email exchange from moments ago (edited for privacy, of course):
Thank you for your emails regarding [some of the condos] we had seen with you and wanting to see them again. We set up some times for Friday from 1-3 pm. Are you available during that time to tour?
Thank you so much for your time and patience with us these past couple of months. Regrettably, the worst has happened. My husband just lost his job and we are forced to put our home search on hold indefinitely. Should our circumstances change, we’ll be in touch.
Number one was the fear of the pink slip. Number two were clients we had written offers on property for, one of which was almost 1342 Shrader (cash buyers up to $2.5M, but works for a bank, and fears a layoff). The above email makes three. We did close on a condo on 17th not too long ago, so it’s not all dark clouds, but it certainly is not all sunshine and roses either.
