Go Ahead....Give Yourself a Real Treat This Month!
The month of October can be a spooky month, maybe even a scary month with monstrous problems. Yikes!! Well maybe not, but words like that seem to be popping up everywhere as kids and adults alike look forward to Halloween.
In fact, according to the USA Today, adults spend more on themselves to celebrate Halloween than any other day during the year. I get that. Especially if they want to hang out with the kids to go trick or treating, or to a Halloween party of some kind.
For many homeowners and home buyers though, they are truly scared. Scared to death of how in the world they are going to get out of their current house and into their next one (the trick).
My Treat: As a result of working with nearly 2,000 families over a 30-year time span, we have developed a special program to help home sellers and homebuyers. We will guarantee the sale of their present home at a price agreeable to them and in the unlikely event their home does not sell, we’ll buy it. Now that is a how you turn a trick into a real treat.
Scary Real Estate Stories
The Halloween decorations have already been up in my neighbourhood for about a week, announcing that the season for spine-tingling ghost stories has arrived.
The House Is Vacant, But Someone’s Home… I was showing a home in which the wife, a Realtor, had recently died. As I was getting the key from the lockbox, the curtain in the front window moved as if someone had pulled it aside to see who was at the front door. Both my clients and I saw this and commented someone must be home. No one was in the home and nothing near the window which might have caused the curtain to move! ~Jan Greene
Years ago, I had a listing that the seller said was haunted by a young boy. When my advertisement came out in the newspaper for the new listing, there was a young, dark figure of a boy standing in the doorway in the picture. ~Julie Beltran
Chucky’s Friends? I showed a house built around 1900. There was an attic area with a stairway. At the top of the stairway was an old doll, sitting in a rocking chair, staring at you. If you went all the way up the stairs, you were greeted by about 10-15 similarly creepy dolls sitting in rocking chairs. ~Jason Feldman
Our goal is to fundraise $10,000 for the Make-a-Wish Foundation so that we can “adopt” a child and see to it that their dream wish comes true. These wishes may only last a week or even just a day but it empowers children to fight harder, while also giving both them and their parents an unforgettable experience. Medical professionals testify to the impact that these wishes have as they observe their patients feel better and comply more readily with the treatments when they return.
We are so excited for this opportunity, but we can’t do it without your support!
Please come alongside us by referring a friend/ family member/ co-worker or by choosing us as your Real Estate Team. Not only will they benefit from our award-winning service, we will donate a portion of our income on every home sale towards our goal so that we can make another’s child’s wish come true like Zeke’s; read Zeke’s wish story below.
I hope you and your family are well this month of tricks & treats is full of treats!
