Recently I was showing a couple some homes in Fort Worth in a neighborhood where the prices were in the $175,000 to $225,000 price range.
Then it came. Some of us have heard it before. They asked me... "Is This a "Mixed" Neighborhood ?
I paused slightly, and then answered: "Well, let's look around. Oh look, there's a single story home. And... over there... why, there's a two-story home. And... LOOK. There's even a story-and-a-half over there !" And... that was all I said. I gently and politely smiled.
So they said: "No... I mean... is the neighborhood mixed... as in "color?"
I replied: "Oh look, up there on the right... there's a red brick home. And a sandy-brownish brick home over there. And, wow, there's even one with some orangish-brownish brick with beige siding." They all look so nice, don't they ?"
Funny thing... but the questions stopped.
After our appointment ended that day... I never heard from them again.
