Every home has a story, every room a memory.

Every home has a story, every room a memory.

I have been listing a large number of homes so far this year.  Not bragging or complaining, just stating the facts.  Alot of the homes have been from folks that were referred to me, some I know personally, some were random finds.  I'm happy to work with all of them, heck, i'm LOVING the surge in business to be quite honest!

It's our job as listing agents to tell the story of a home to potential buyers.  The features it has, what has been done to it for upgrades, what catastrophes it might have been through & maybe even why the homeowners are selling it.  It's too small or it's too big, it's too far from work or they lost their jobs & have to sell it. 

What potential buyers may or may not hear about are the memories their home brought to them, the people who lived in it.  Good or bad, happy or sad, every home has them, right? 

Maybe the home now brings too many memories of a loved one that has passed or it's too big since your children have grown up & moved on.  You brought your first born home to it or it's the home you & your spouse bought together & have since divorced.  Or very simply, your family is growing & you've outgrown the home. 

I've seen every scenario and heard many, many stories, every Realtor has.  Some are so happy to be rid of the home, other's get saddened even when they didn't think they would when it sells.  I've laughed with homeowners & even cried, i've hugged them, looked them in the eyes & told them it was going to be ok.  I've looked at pictures of their grandchildren & heard about all the memories the home has brought them.  Their home, their memories.   

I love selling Real Estate, don't get me wrong.  I am not so sentimental about the memories a home holds that I won't sell it for you or sell it to you so you can make new memories.  I've just heard a few stories about the memories the home holds for sellers lately that are making me appreciate the homes and the people in them more.
