Hi this is Cari McGee with Keller William Realty. 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.
This week’s question comes to us from Galen W., who asks, “Cari, do you ever get tired of looking at houses?”
And the answer is I don’t. Even when I’ve seen a floor plan a ton of times because either I represented that builder and I’ve studied the floor plans, or because it’s a house that I’ve been in a lot, or the same floor plan in a particular neighborhood that I’ve seen a lot — I love to see the different things that people do with their decor, and with floor plans, and upgrades, and updates, and changes and things, and it’s always really fascinating to me. So no, I don’t get tired of looking at houses.
But his question made me think of the old “Roseanne” show. And there was once an episode that just — I loved this line. New people had moved in next door to the Conners and Roseanne and Dan had gone over to visit them and meet them, and they walked in and their house was much better than the Conners’ house. Very well appointed and furnished, and Roseanne looked around in awe and then she hit Dan on the chest and she said, “Dan, this is my house if I’d married someone better.” Which is, of course, an awful thing to say to your husband, but I thought was funny because I was younger and wasn’t married then.
Anyway, I hope that answers your question. And if you have any other questions for me regarding real estate, by all means, give me a shout via any one of the methods that follow on the next screen. Thanks so much. See you next week!
