As a house-proud owner, i was annoyed by this piece of crappy notice pasted on my front gate. The handwritten note shows some sincerity of the prospective buyer but if you really are a serious buyer, Mr Wong, get a decent housing agent. Try the Yellowpages. The bloody Yellowpages was not invented as a substitute for pang sai jua
or kacang putih
wrapper. I called up that number after dinner, just to have a closure on my anger.
The teleconversation went like this:
SF: How much are you offering for my property, Mr Wong?
Wong: $5,000 above valuation
SF: How much is your valuation?
SF: So you are offering $325,000 lah, Mr Wong
SF: Thats too low, how about 20% above evaluation
Mr Wong: Thats too ex.
SF: But didnt you say you like my area, its environment and the friendly people. Actually, what do u mean by that?
Wong: Oh! I like the beach …
SF: Oh sure! we have great beach parties here every weekend and my house is at the high level. Can see Batam on a good day!
Wong: I think the neighbourhood is great. The people are really friendly.
SF: You can say that. There are a lot of characters living in this neighbourhood. Do you have kid Mr Wong?
Wong: Yup. two fast growing teenagers who always talk non-stop on the phone.
SF: With the Tammy fiasco, i think it is comforting to you if i tell you that this place is so safe, anytime a mobile phone is lost, the police will waste no time in looking into it.
Wong: Thats sound great, man!
SF: So, do you still think the price is unreasonable?
Wong: No lah. actually it is out of the quantum covered by my bank.
SF: (murmuring) @#$%^!!
SF: Mr Wong, take it from me. Either get a more generous banker or pick a neighbourhood that fits the size of your pocket!
Am i too nasty to Wong? Take a look at my neighbourhood and you be the judge!!
