Day 3 – Real Life English Boost – E-mail Series

Welcome to DAY 3 of the Real Life English Boost. I hope you’re having an amazing day! Thanks for learning with me.

Today we are going to look at another short real life English dialogue about buying a house.

I like to “study” dialogues because it’s as close to real life as you can get without being in actual real life.

This is a dialogue about buying a house.


Listen to the audio of this Real life English Dialogue


Dialogue: Buying a House

Real Estate Agent: Hi. I’m so excited to work with you. Can you tell me what you’re looking for in a house?

Randy: Yeah. I’m excited too. I’m looking for something with some land. Maybe a couple of acres since I have horses. I would prefer a ranch style house.

Real Estate Agent: How many bedrooms and bathrooms?

Randy: Ideally 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. I would love an extra room that I could turn into an office for my wife, because she works from home.

Real Estate Agent: Okay. And do you prefer new construction or old?

Randy: It doesn’t matter. As long as the price is right. I really don’t want a fixer upper.

Real Estate Agent: Okay. Got it. Speaking of price. What is your budget?

Randy: To give you a ballpark figure, I would say between $350-$400,000. I already have a preapproval letter from the bank for a loan of this size.

Real Estate Agent: Okay, yeah. That’s great you’ve already been preapproved. As you know, the housing market is hot these days, but I think you have a good budget. Most likely I won’t be able to find anything with that many acres of land right in town. But if you’re willing to drive 20-30 minutes, I think that will open up some possibilities.

Randy: Yeah, I hear ya. The drive is no problem for us. We would prefer to be a little outside of town.

Real Estate Agent: Okay. Well I will be looking, and as soon as something comes up, I will give you a call. You hadn’t mentioned if there is a timeframe for buying the house?

Randy: We have to be out of our apartment in 3 months. So ideally by then.

Real Estate Agent: Great. I’m looking forward to helping you find the perfect house for you and your wife.
