“I had enough. That whole morning we would spend cleaning up, tidying things, and that was time we couldn’t spend playing with him…At some point, after hiding things every weekend, you kind of just want to lay them out on the floor.”
– Brooklyn homeowner Emily Huters, who accepted an offer on her two-bedroom home this winter, in part to end the hassle of hiding away her infant’s highchair and toys prior to weekend open houses. Her Realtor tells the New York Times that Huters and her husband received an offer close to their $825,000 asking price, but could have pulled in almost $900,000 if they had waited until the spring thaw.
Obviously each seller has priorities and points at which enough’s enough, but thankfully the Times doesn’t try to spin Huters’ case as a trend among sellers.
