Nothing much new to report here in coastal Delaware. I was on the Sunday schedule to work today from 10 to 4. (I am a Realtor.) Since this is a beach town there are lots and lots of vacationers here now and a lot of them stop in for information about properties for sale. Many people are here for only a day or two or a week and think, "Wouldn't it be fun to own a quaint cottage by the ocean?". The problem is that those quaint cottages run about a million dollars or more. I had a customer in today who swore that there were houses for sale for $400,000 just a few blocks to the beach. I pulled up our search screen on my computer and showed her that MAYBE she could get a small condo for that price, but not a house. She had her husband waiting outside the office with their bicycles and only had a few minutes to get information (that certainly takes more than a few minutes to get together and discuss) or he would get mad. I suggested that I get a package of listings together for her and that she stop back in a little while for it. So I prepared a very nice package, pertinent things highlighted, a highlighted map, etc. She never returned. Sometimes that is the world of real estate sales.
