Hi, this is Cari McGee with Keller Williams Real Estate. Welcome to this week’s episode of “Ask the Realtor.” Every week, I answer questions from buyers and sellers and pretty much everyone in between regarding real estate.
So this week’s question is, “I just read about a real estate agent who found dead bodies in a house she was showing to clients. What’s your craziest real estate story?”
Well, I had a client who was thinking of purchasing a duplex and he was going to live in one side, rent out the other side so it was gonna be an investment property for him. When you go to look at duplexes, sometimes you can’t get in at all until you actually have made your offer but sometimes you can go ahead and get in if the listing agent is accompanying you and then also as long as you give 24 hours’ notice to the renters.
So that’s what we did. We were looking at a bunch of duplexes that day with the listing agent accompanying us and he had given notice to everybody so that they knew we were on our way. So it’s the listing agent, myself, and my buyer and we’re all in one particular duplex and we go into one of the bedrooms and there is a couple in the bed, in the bedroom, in the middle of the day. And they knew we were gonna be there and it was just kind of really, really weird and awkward and they weren’t doing anything except for…I don’t even know what they were doing. They said, “Hey” when we came in and then they said, “Goodbye” when we left and so that was my weirdest real estate story.
