It’s TOO Hot to See Homes Today
Here we are in August, and the Gainesville Real Estate market has been cooking this season. It’s TOO Hot to See Homes Today! Busy is a very good thing! I love to brag that I always have the best clients! Most who know me, know that I love working with buyers!
Our Gainesville market is busy and no complaints at all. Public schools have started, and the college kids are all rolling into town this week too. The start of school has always created a slow-down of our local market. (In my opinion) And I’m looking forward to football.
Scheduling buyers for showings on weekends is often a tight schedule and we all have to plan ahead. Sometimes we can be in and out of the car for showings in pouring down rain…..after all, it’s summer time in Gainesville! And when my clients are out-of-towners, there isn’t much choice on the weather when they arrive.
But I had a good laugh today.
I had scheduled a showing yesterday for one of my local buying clients.
Yes, we’ve had strange weather this summer. One day can be torrential rain, horrible lightning, thunder boomers…..then other days are sweltering heat, no breeze, and no rain relief. I tend to get a bit cranky when we go several days with no rain…..it’s a Florida thing.
My clients called mid day and asked that we postpone the showing we had scheduled. I said, no problem! But, I was curious and concerned and asked why?
She said it’s just too HOT. Can we do this one day next week after work?
I laughed and said sure thing, we can re-schedule. I want to keep my buyers happy.
This was a first for me in my real estate career….a client saying is was too hot to go see homes! Yet, it made me go look at my outdoor thermometer yesterday. So here’s proof it was 100 degrees, in the shade of my back porch! And yep……that’s HOT.
Luckily, it rains late afternoon and cooled things down!
