Peder: Politically correct car wanted! Chronicles

“While a lot of energy is put into arranging a pile of lemons in the right place inside the house, most people seem to forget the driveway.”

This is what it should look like at a house sale. Hope our columnist.

This is a chronicle. This means that the content is the writer’s own opinion.


A couple of weeks ago, my kids and I started dating talk about moving to villa again. It would be nice to have a plot so you can only throw the dogs out when they feel like it and we have missed the pool from the old house.

But I immediately said that we will have to sell the townhouse first so we know what we have to deal with. These are troubled times and we can not go on and buy anything before we sell the townhouse.

Nevertheless, my daughter and I decided to go on a “test drive”, you know, just look around a bit at a house to get a sense of what we like and do not, so we know what to look for once the townhouse has found new owners.

We went on a tour quite close where we live now, in Täby Kyrkby. An old grown up cozy area with nice older houses and yet close for the kids to get to school.

The house we looked at was from 1939, with a large plot, and even a small red cottage was included. Wood burning stove in the kitchen and fireplace in the living room. “Shit, cozy,” said my daughter. “Shit, cozy,” I said. “We’ll take it,” we told the broker together.

When we got home I started to realize what we had done, now it was panic to get the townhouse on the market and find a buyer before the bailiff comes and takes both houses. I drive all in on styling and stuff so that neither I nor the broker will have anything to blame afterwards.

That I as incredibly intelligent and also a little car enthusiast quickly realized is what many others seem to forget: That while a lot of energy is put into arranging a pile of lemons in the right place inside the house, most people seem to forget the driveway? Who wants to see an empty boring driveway when it can be styled just like the rest of the house?

But what should you style it with? If you put a Ferrari or a Lamborghini there, you scare away the red shirts and environmental elves, if you put a Tesla there, you scare away people like me.

You have to find a politically correct car which in fact also people interested in cars can like. After discussions with various consultants in car styling at house sales (it is a profession I have just invented) we came to the perfect answer!

The car in the driveway in the sales photos is in this case a BMW i8. No one can get mad at it because it runs on both a little electricity and a little petrol, and a car that still people, including myself, think is damn good-looking. Perfect huh? In my case, then, the equivalent of the lemon pile was a BMW.

In addition to the fact that through these sales I have created a completely new potential professional group, I have secured a ridiculously high sales price for the townhouse. I hope. You will find out how it went in the next column, then it will hopefully be sold.

Which car had you chosen yourself?
