Neil made his first sale today! He was on website duty yesterday and someone emailed from BC saying they wanted to buy a specific house in Odessa, SK. The deal was basically done within 36 hours. Unfortunately, the house was only $12,000 and after splitting the commission with the other agent and Century 21, Neil doesn't get much out of it. In fact, he won't even see a penny because it'll all go toward his office bill which far exceeds the amount. But still -- it's a start!
These people sold their house in BC and then bought this house, site unseen, except photos on the internet. Neil hasn't even seen the house. He had to make sure the contract stated "as is". Not only that, when Neil spoke to them yesterday, they already had all of their belongings packed and were ready to drive to Saskatchewan. They were just waiting to close the deal on their former house. Today, when their offer was formally accepted, they were en route to SK.
