Driving this car makes me a better listing agent

Here is my latest ride.  It might look familiar to you because I’m standing beside a similar car in the picture on my blog, but they only look alike.  This one has a different engine, transmission and suspension.

My youngest son found it.  It was going to be a project both my boys could work on and then they sell for a little profit.  That plan changed when I drove this broken down 17-year-old car home from western Tennessee last fall.  I knew I wanted to keep it and I knew that I wanted to rescue it from becoming a parts car.  So I bought it from my boys.

I really liked the lighter blue one I use to have, but I LOVE this one.

Why?

M Roadster

Because the way it feels while driving it.

When people ask me why I like it so much, I don’t quote the weight of the car, I say it is very agile.  I don’t mention the steering ratio, I say the steering feels lightening quick.  I don’t tell people about the high flow throttle body and cold air intake, I say the engine sound is intoxicating.

I try to do the same thing when I list a house.

A home is much more than some cold list of features.

When I describe a house, I want to convey the vibe of the place.  I want people to get a feeling about what the house is like as they read my description and see my pictures.

How do I know buyers think like I do about my car?  Because I have never heard anybody describe a house they love by quoting the square footage, bathroom count or other features.  They always tell me how all those things make them feel.

Oh, and like a lot of real estate pictures, my car looks better online that it does in person.
