Sure enough, the next day he called, very excited. He'd taken a look at the property and LOVED it. (As an aside, this actually constitutes the FIRST potential buyer to even look at the property since it was listed in July). In the message he left, he asked that I return his call. He wanted to talk about buying the property. Naturally skeptical, still, I did return his call and we agreed to meet at the house later in the afternoon, when his girl friend (a post office clerk I have known for several years) could join us.
So, with the wicked thunderstorms threatening, we arrived at the pond house at a little after 4 PM yesterday.

Well, we shall see if the "deal" he comes up with is one we can agree on. I remain a skeptic, but it was nice to see the house and the property through another person's eyes. To be honest, since I had that house built on that property, people have consistently loved it, when seeing it for the first time. Everyone is surprised to "discover" it even exists back there. But, with no real estate agent bringing any prospective buyers to see the place, it is easy to begin to believe nobody will be interested. At least showing it to these two renewed my hope that, if agents will at least bring the potential buyers, they WILL be able to make a sale.
Much as I do find it a beautiful parcel, I will be very happy to know it is being enjoyed by new owners.... perhaps.... one day.....
