|Panorama Shot of the House & Property|
The real estate business is a conundrum. There are so many expectations and procedures and rules of engagement, many of which just don't fit our way of doing things or our values. We prefer personal interactions with the people we're selling to, rather than the third party protocol with agent interference. In the real estate business, it's a horrible thing for the homeowner-seller to be present at showings or to get to know the buyer in the process. It's hard for us not to be able to show the house and share tidbits about why we did what we did, how the surroundings work for us, etc. We'd love to know about the potential buyers and what they'd like to do here. We'd just like to know how God is fitting this together both for us and for them. We'd like to know how we've prepare this place for the next steward of it. Perhaps we will be able to have some personal interaction, but not if left to the real estate world.
There. I have vented.
