Weird Happenings in Real Estate

Yesterday was a very odd day of showing houses.  It starts with me standing in the middle of the driveway of a house I am supposed to be showing my clients.  They are lost and I’m trying to help them find their way to the house even though I have no clue where they are within town.  So as I am talking to them, a guy pulls up, asks me if the house is for sale and proceeds to walk past me saying, “I’m just going to take a look.”  Seriously, who just parks on the street and starts walking into a house for sale?real estate stalker

As I’m busy talking, I stop him and explain he can’t just walk into the house.  I try to explain that I’m not the listing agent, as I’m still on the phone, trying to catch him before he gets in the door.  He quickly retreats and tells me, “it probably won’t work for his friends who need to find a house in 2 weeks anyways.”  He then gets back into his car and drives away.  I was actually glad I was on the phone and too “busy” to deal with him.  He freaked me out.  Was I almost the victim of a scary stranger, or does this guy really have no regard for how things work?
