Real Estate Agent: Hello, Mrs Fusspot, and thanks for coming in. Do sit down. I think I’ve got the perfect cottage for you. It came on the market this morning.
Client: Thank you, young man. You know, it’s taken far longer than I expected and I am rather anxious to move from my present home.
Man: I do understand your hurry, Mrs Fusspot. It must be very hard to have such inconsiderate next-door neighbours – the children playing in their garden, the dog barking, birthday parties, family gatherings and so on. I don’t know how you’ve put up with it.
Woman: Well, when you reach my age, young man, you learn the value of patience. Now, tell me about this cottage you’ve found.
Man: Oh, it’s just lovely. Far better than anything else you’ve seen. So charming. A beautiful rose garden and magnificent trees. A short walk to the beach and the village shops and post office. If you would be so kind as to look at these photos. Here you are …
Woman: Hmmm … it does have a certain charm. Is it 19th century?
Man: Actually, no. It dates from 1798, so technically, it’s an 18th century building. And look, you can see the date inscribed over the door.
Woman: Oh yes. What about the price?
Man: Well, it’s 20,000 pounds over your budget, but I do believe it’s worth the extra cash. Here, have a look at the beautiful fireplace in the living room and the high-ceilings in all of the rooms. There are three bedrooms in all, and I know you specified that two would be enough, but you could use the third as a library or open it up to the back garden and use it as a patio. You could sit out there on warm summer evenings and enjoy the view of the sea.
Woman: That’s a very nice suggestion, but I don’t know the first thing about renovating and remodelling houses. I’m not sure I want the fiiss, the mess or the delay.
Man: Leave that to me, Mrs Fusspot. I can recommend a builder who could do the job for a good price and quickly _ he’ll be in and out in no time at all.
Woman: We’ll see about that. When can I view the property? Tomorrow?
Man: Why wait? The seller is no longer living there so we won’t be disturbing anyone. My car is parked just outside.
Woman: Fine, let’s see it then. I hope it’s as good close up as it is in the photos.
