I was out showing penthouse condos in the East Village tonight and entered a unit that literally took my breath away. As I opened the unit I turned to my clients only to see them make a face as if they saw a ghost. As I stepped further into the unit I soon realized what they were making the face at. There was a horrible odor in the unit. Now I have never smelt a dead body before but this smell is what I imagined one would smell like. As we frantically ran through the unit gasping for fresh air my client noticed an odd deep freezer type appliance at the end of the counter. Curiosity got the best of us and we opened it. To our surprise it had various organs in it and there was no cooling unit in it to stop them from spoiling. Thus the dead body smell. Needless to say we ran out of the unit never to return.
Sellers of penthouse condos in Calgary please note: The smell of rotting organs does not appeal to most buyers in todays market. Especially ones looking at penthouse units. If this was Transylvania and my clients were vampires we might be able to do a deal.
