Blogging with Buddy March 5th, 2021

Are we busy?  You bet we are as Realtors across the province accommodate out of province buyers mostly from Ontario and British Columbia.  Virtual showings are now the new norm as buyers from away walk through the homes with their agents using Zoom, Facetime, Duo, etc.  The lucky ones have a local friend or relative who can be there in person to comment on what they like and don’t like but many don’t have this option and are relying heavily on their Realtor to be honest with them and show them every angle of the property, the good, the bad and the ugly!  It’s never been more important to have a Realtor you can trust with loads of experience who know what to look for and how to protect your interests.  Mama and Charlie have been swamped and quickly adapted to this new style of showing.  Me, not so much.  Because of the pandemic I can’t host open houses or have a meet and greet right now but with talk of going back to Yellow tomorrow night better days are on the horizon.  Oh to get back to the days of open houses on the waterfront where I would show off my swimming skills and even offer swimming lessons to young pups just learning the ropes.  Seems like so long ago now!!!  Maybe this summer?  Paws crossed and hoping!

On my last blog I mentioned a beautiful new listing coming up in Quispamsis.  Well it came and it went.  35 Perry Court hit the MLS Wednesday and by Thursday showings were booked every half hour from 10am right through to 9pm.  Fifty percent of the viewers were local and fifty percent were from out of province.  Let the bidding begin!  We’re in the middle of a bidding war which will commence today at 5pm.  What an exciting week, I’ve never seen Mama work so hard, ever!

What’s all the excitement about on this house anyway?  Mama says it’s not only modern and stylish but had nice-sized rooms at 2400 sq ft on the main level and another 1150 finishes in the walkout basement bringing the total to 3550!  That leaves 1250 sq ft of storage space.  The biggest fuss is over the huge .71 acre lot at the end of a cul de sac!!!  So rare to find a home in a subdivision with this kind of acreage and privacy.  MLS#NB054378 offered at $574,500.

The sun is shining hope you have a great weekend.  Nicholas and I look forward to some nice walks at Spy Glass Hill.  Talk soon.

Your pal,
