House Hunting Safari

When Unexpected Pets Steal the Show

We’ve had a lot of exciting encounters in our years of selling real estate, but this story is definitely one for the books.

Once upon a house showing, my sister Josie and I embarked on what we thought would be a typical day of showcasing properties to potential buyers. Little did we know, this particular referral from a friend would lead us down a path of utter disbelief and chaos.

As we entered the house, our jaws dropped at the sight of floor-to-ceiling aquariums, teeming with exotic creatures that seemed more suited for a zoo than a suburban home. From baby alligators to fuzzy critters we couldn’t even name, and snakes slithering around, it was like walking into a wildlife sanctuary.

Navigating through the living room, we exchanged bewildered glances (that only two sisters would understand), silently communicating our disbelief, while our buyers’ expressions oscillated between fascination and sheer concern. Hoping this was just a quirky room, we hurried through to the kitchen, only to find ostriches casually strolling in the backyard – because why not?

Laser Lights & Mannequin Mayhem

Deciding to let Josie take the lead outside, I stayed back, only to witness a scene straight out of a comedy film. As she journeyed outside, red lights began flashing, sirens began blaring, and Josie sprinting back to the house, tripping and falling in front of our bemused buyers, as ostriches joined the chaos. You heard it right, ostriches running free all over the backyard.

Seeking refuge inside, we ascended to the top floor, hoping for some reprieve, only to be greeted by more aquariums, another alligator look-alike, and an abundance of snakes. The best part came when we toured the primary bedroom and the garage, where mannequins adorned every corner, adding a surreal touch to the already bizarre experience.

Let’s Buy the House

Despite our reservations, the buyers expressed a keen interest in purchasing the property. Weeks later, during the inspection, we were introduced to the homeowner, who proudly showcased their menagerie of exotic pets, offering us the chance to hold the reptiles – an offer we politely declined.

Amidst tales of escaped snakes and unexplained mannequins, the buyers remained undeterred, determined to make this eccentric house their home. And so, with a mixture of bewilderment and amusement, we concluded yet another unforgettable chapter in the wild world of real estate.
