Homeowner confronts couple over wasted time during house viewing 😠

Selling a house can be a stressful experience, and one homeowner had an unpleasant encounter with a couple viewing their home. After leaving their property for a scheduled viewing, they returned to find the couple still in the house. When the homeowner went outside to wait, the woman and her husband started questioning her about the lack of a garage and the high price of the house. The situation escalated quickly, with the couple offering significantly less than the asking price and the homeowner threatening to increase the price further if they wanted a garage. The encounter ended with the couple leaving in tears and the homeowner feeling justified in standing up for themselves. While it's understandable to want to ask questions about a property, it's important to be respectful of the seller's time and decisions. Stay tuned for comments and reactions to this heated interaction.
