My gift to you!
People have called it the most valuable resource in the world even though it doesn’t cost any money. It’s been equated to life and said if it’s lost, you can never find it again.
You may have guessed this precious resource is time.
And in the giving spirit, I want to help you find more of yours in the coming year.
Whether buying or selling, wasted time is one of the biggest problems that I see with real estate transactions.
It’s usually the fault of emotion overriding preparation. And I will give you a few examples.
The first one is shopping for your new home, before you can commit to buying. I understand that it is fun and exciting to visit homes that are on the market.
The problem arrises when you find the perfect home. Then you scramble to get your ducks in a row.
But before you can pull the trigger, someone else swoops in and buys the home of your dreams.
Suddenly, the fun and excitement ends in a nightmare. I’ve seen this happen hundreds of times.
Or, you get in a rush to put your home on the market, but your marketing plan has not been executed.
All you hear those important, first 10 days on the market is crickets. And your listing is stale before anyone schedules a showing.
These are the most common examples.
Over the last decade, I’ve seen every mistake a person could make to waste their time and increase their frustration.
We believe in the Abraham Lincoln approach to time. He said, “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”
If you are planning to make a move in 2017, there is no better time to start than right now.
Let’s break that axe out of the woodshed and get to sharpening.
You and I can plan out everything in advance without any obligation. And then when it is “go time”, there are no stumbles or bridges to cross.
While it’s on your mind right now, pick up the phone and give me a call (615-519-0983).
Or don’t. It’s your time if you want to waste it.
