Doesn't matter where you live, if you're a listing agent who wants more listings, just print out a boarding pass. That's all it takes. Soon as you plan to leave town, sellers start to call. The good news for me is nobody knows if I am physically in Sacramento or whether I am in Hawaii. When people guess, they are often wrong.
The photo on this blog is of the view across the street from a home in Laguna West. While I sat at the wrong house, waiting on the front porch, I got up and shot a photo. Minutes ticked by. After 5 minutes, I called the sellers. Just checking to see if you're at the house, I said. Yup, they answered. They were waiting for me. Uh, oh, maybe this house with the cobwebs is not where I was supposed to be. Sure enough, I was at the wrong house.
At least I quickly figured it out. Because I can very easily go to the wrong house. Not the first time and won't be the last. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: How to Attract Listings in Sacramento By Going to Hawaii.
