Okay, I don't really know what these things are but I do have a slight understanding. I believe that Kharma is the bad stuff and Dharma is the good stuff. Stuff meaning luck or a power of attraction. So if you go putting out bad vibes to the world, the world sends you back bad stuff called Kharma. If you send out the good vibes then the world sends you Dharma.
(I'm not talking about Dharma and Greg although I just figured out why that was her name)
So, I have a property that has been on the market for nine months now. I couldn't give it away.
I showed it no less than an average of four times a week for the nine month period. It was a beauty but it had an unusual floor plan and it would take the right buyer. It looked over big beautiful Lake Livingston Texas and was in an elite neighborhood.
Nobody wanted it. The house had been listed with yet another agency before they listed with me so it had languished on the open market for well over a year.
I guess it was kharma. Someone made the quote that:" there is never an original idea on this earth, if you're thinking about it then someone else is too!"
Who said that? I don't know! Look it up! (I learned that one from Archie Bunker)
Day one. Monday. Just like any other day. But...
1. Out of the blue an offer came in on my Lakehouse! YEA! I was so excited I about jumped out of my skin! It was for "the" house. The offer came over the Internet which I found strange but just didn't care. I immediately put the paperwork together and sent it to the buyer to be signed. He would send it to me the next day so I could present to my Sellers.
Day two. Tuesday. A call comes in from a man that wants to see the house. "the" house.
2. He was from California and was a trucker and had to see it right away. Of course, I showed it.
He fell in love with it right away and told me he would like to make an offer! Wow, I'm thinking this is too good to be true! His wife was involved but agreed with him by phone to go ahead and place a bid. I told them I had another coming. They placed a strong bid.
Day three. Wednesday. I was waiting till I got all the paperwork for both offers together and signed before I alerted the Sellers. I just wanted everything in writing.
3. By the time I received both signed offers it was late in the day on Wednesday. I contacted the Sellers to schedule an appointment to go over the paperwork. They were so excited! We scheduled a "sit down" for the next morning at 10:00 am.
Day four. Thursday. It was one hour till my meeting time with my Sellers. Our Office Manager walked in and said, "there is a couple wanting to see you and they want to see "the" house.
"the" house? huh. okay. I had yet to present the other two offers...
4. I showed "the" house. They, as everyone else did that week, wanted "the" house. They knew there were two other offers on the table so...they gave me a full priced cash offer.
So, this has happened to me several times with several properties.
Nobody wants it then everybody wants it.
From Kharma to Dharma. I vote for Dharma.
Later in the rain~Deb
and Proud of it!
