This week, we had a pricing party at a beautiful house in Chevy Chase. It's going on the market very soon. And it's a great house with everything I would want. There's great entertaining space, a kitchen that would be really fun to cook in, a home office that could turn even a lazy slob into a hyper producer, and I was in love, grabbing my client list.
And then I went up to the second floor and looked out the rear window. This is what I saw.
It was a dogwood in more than full bloom with multi-colored azaleas.
And I had an "AHA" moment.
Washington has a spring market every year. Home buyers go a little bit crazy. They get involved in multiple offers and have to win. And they are not buying a fabulous house, but the dogwoods and azaleas that convey with the property.
And when I looked out the window of our new listing, I couldn't blame them!
