Selling houses

I visited the estate agents again the other day, just to remind them that I had asked for some extra information on our 'for sale' board and so far, nothing had happened.
"Ah yes," said the nice man. It was the same one I had dealt with before. Did I imagine the fleeting expressions of 'Oh no, she's back again!' followed by the professional smile of welcome with a hint of anxiety lurking in the eyes?
"We do ask the firm that does the boards for us and sometimes they don't do it, so we have to ask them again. I'll do it now." And he tapped away on his keyboard.
So, yesterday the board was amended:
Estate agents do have a sense of humour - it's official!

Oh gosh!!! I nearly choked myself! LOL!

Sounds as if you have a really big downstairs cloakroom with 360 degree views but you need to flush it with a bucket.

Hmm, not exactly a great selling point though. ;)

I didn't think chains could have conservatories....

Jennyta said...

No, the conservatory has the chain in case anyone tries to steal it.

Shouldn't it say "No chains in conservatory - just leather bullwhips and brass studded PVC thongs"

Jennyta said...

Ah! Knew there was something wrong with it, YP. I wonder what the expression on that estate agent's face will be when I walk in to ask him to alter it...And then, of course, we'll need an extension to the board.
