Now?  Is it Warm Enough Now?

In a post this Spring titled, “The Strategic Use of ‘Coming Soon!’,” I discussed listing agents who alert prospective Buyers about prospective fixes that will be done when weather permits.

The obvious corollary to that post:  such tactics are time-limited.

So, informing prospective Buyers that “The Garage Door Will be Painted When Weather Permits” in early July — as I just saw in a home I showed this week — is now a bit . . . lame.

Unless, of course, they meant when the weather cools off(??).

(If you’re reading this outside the Twin Cities, we’re enjoying — finally– a run of seasonably hot summer days).
