As you probably know, Paris and I live in Bridgeport of Valencia CA.
We have been here since these we new homes and have moved a couple of times to various residences during our time Living in Bridgeport.
Our kids went to Bridgeport Elementary School. They went onto Rio Norte Junior High and progressed to Valencia HS. We still have one that is at Rio Norte…
We want to buy your home…
We received a “sincere” letter from a couple named Persona and Personb(names have been changed because if they are willing to sacrifice their own morals – everyone is free game – Read On…)
They wanted to let me know the following:
“My fiance’ and I would have been leasing a condo on Channel Lane for over 2 years now and absolutely love living in Bridgeport. (I double checked the language – that is what was on the letter, not a typo…) We now are fortunate enough to be in a position where we are ready and able to buy our first home but have quickly realized how limited the inventory is. That being said, we took the initiative of driving through Bridgeport, street by street taking note of the addresses of the homes which we thought were truly exceptional and as it happens your house is one of them.”
The letter continues for a few more paragraphs. “Contact us as we would be highly interested…”
“We are more than ready to buy immediately…”
“If you would feel more comfortable working with a realtor…”
And so on.. The one mistake of the initiator of this letter was not using a phone number that does not show up as them being a “REALTOR” on Zillow!
Counter 1 of the “Want to buy your Home Letter”
Leasing – Could be true. Love living in Bridgeport – absolutely true 🙂
I’m going to throw a flag on the statement, “initiative of driving through Bridgeport, street by street, taking note…”
I am not going to get into any more detail about the letter – except to say they are wanting to go 50% down.
And one of the phone numbers listed belongs to a Real Estate agent that popped up on Zillow!
Game – Most likely Yes – this is home some real estate agents roll.
I hate liars!
The next time you have a knock on your door, receive a letter in the mail or have someone call you on the phone purporting to have a Buyer, Want to Buy, or anything else – WATCH OUT!
Many of my friends and clientele received the same letter. OMT – If by a Realtor, that needs to be disclosed on the letter – but that is another story 🙂
I’m Connor with REMAX of Santa Clarita and I’m glad to be of service and not a GAME PLAYER when it comes to obtaining new business or representing real estate clients.
