In keeping with tradition of sharing some of my most memorable experiences in selling Myrtle Beach Real Estate, today I share one that definitely is one I can never forget. A couple that we had sold a home to a few years back had contacted us and to sell their home.
What made selling this home unique was that the sellers were getting a divorce. When we arrived at the home for the listing appointment we noticed that the home had some rather awkward changes made to the home. Mr. Seller we will call him "Barry" was not a big fan of people being able to see in the house, so he had nailed carpet over the front windows of the home. Also, he was very concerned about someone breaking into the house through the side garage door, so he nailed that shut. Then, he rewired the garage door opener to keep others from opening it. To top it off, he added a few holes in the walls behind the curtains for safe storage places.
However, this is not what I remember most about this seller. One fine sunny fall day we had some buyers in town who needed a home that weekend and one of the homes that they had a major interest in was this listing of ours. We called ahead and scheduled the showing. When we arrived at the home, the driveway was empty and the home looked as if nobody was home. Like usual we entered through the front door, ringing the doorbell, shouting hello. Since there was no response, we entered into the home and began showcasing the listing to our buyers. We started by showing the unbelievable kitchen, the great lake views from the Carolina Room, and then made our way toward the spacious master bedroom. Our buyers were definitely falling in love with this great home.
I then turned to the buyers and said, "if you love this home so far, wait till you see the great master bathroom with it's awesome garden tub!" I slowly opened the door and to our surprise we found Barry in the tub. And unfortunately, he was not alone. The part that was even weirder was that he was not embarrased about us walking in on his tub party. In fact, he invited us to come on in and look around. The two much much younger women that were in the tub with him however turned brighter red than Rudolph's nose. My buyers totally taken back turned around and made a mad dash for the front door.
Needless to say, these buyers had lost all interest in this home. In time the home finally sold and went to a wonderful family that has done some amazing renovations to this home. I have had the pleasure of visiting this home on numrous occasions. Why have I gone back so many times to this home? Because my parents ended up purchasing the home!
