Northern Virginia Realtors: Real Estate Conversations That I am Not Making Up. #1

Real Estate Conversations That I am Not Making Up. #1



Wife: you like this house?

Husband: shmehhh...not really but if you are happy I am OK with it.

Wife: It is not my goal to make you miserable.

Husband: I know. You said that in your wedding vow poem.


You gotta love clients who think like this.

Hi Steve and Jan Bachman, That is funny and probably very true in a lot of relationships.

Steve and Jan Bachman When I hear conversations similar to this, I tell myslf that sooner or later, this guy is going to snap.

That's funny! One can tell a lot by observing the behavior between husband and wife during house-hunting! Sometimes though, I would rather not know.

Steve, My criteria are a lot less stringent than my other half for home requirements.  We've been in the same house for 20+ years and MAY be coming up on making a change in a few years (assuming we move back to Maryland).  That'll be interesting seeing what we both like AND can afford. Bill

That's cute.  He sounds accommodating, and she sounds mindful.  I imagine they are very happy together.
