When we were looking for a house to buy, we had a real estate agent whom we think was laziest of all the agent we have come in contact with. He showed us many properties that are foreclosed. We thought it was kind of weird that not even one of those properties are livable! Little we know, he was planning a scheme. After showing houses after houses, he started talking us into buying a newly built home in the area we didn't even think we can live for it is very far from hubby's job. Disappointed, we went ourselves to that place just for curiosity without the agent's knowledge. We even decided to get a new agent to help us up. Someone who is not lazy and most of all younger and with plenty of energy.
Anyway, when we got to that place, we fell in love with it. It was a new community with all the amenities we needed. Who would not fall in love with it? It has a big park with swimming pool, basketball court, baseball field, walking path, and close to school and everything! To make the long story short, we bought a piece of land and have our house built. It's been nine months but we still get a lot of business cards. Just the other day, I have got one from a man who works at a security system company trying to sell a contract. Sometimes we just find them outside our doorsteps, they even put them in our mailbox. It is driving me nuts!
