While doing a little research, I found this great article about how Friendly Neighbors can sell a neighborhood. I was recently explaining this to a group of homeowners. I do believe a friendly neighborhood makes a huge difference.
When Showing Homes, I see lots of homeowners out doing yard work and such. They may not know who I am but, they wave. Maybe it is a Southern Thing, but, it is certainly nice and hospitable!
Thanks to the agent who shared this article!
I'm driving to my showing with my buyers in their car right behind me. I turn the corner and a fella on his riding lawn mower looks up in our direction, smiles and waves. As we pull into the driveway, the neighbors to the west of the listed home come out of their front door on their way out for a walk, and yep, they wave as well.
The buyers look around the home for a few minutes, the house has most of what they wanted. They can't wait to get back to my office and make an offer on the home (I've only showed them one other house). They are smiling from ear to ear and can't wait to move.
I can't believe I found this picture in IClip, I tried to color it. The guy is pushing this lawnmower, my guy was riding his!
When you travel down a country road in Montana, sometimes people will wave at you from their drivers seat. You might think it's odd, cause you haven't a clue who they are. Don't fret, it's just a custom, it's just friendly, wave back!
This waving episode was unrehearsed, making the buyers eager to move to a great neighborhood.
