Transition. We buy. We sell. We explore choices. Except when we feel we don't have the luxury of time.Today I met a smart business woman at one of our listed properties. She had been driving around, looking for a place where she feels "at home". Even though she bought a brand new vinyl clad home almost seventeen months ago just a few miles from this all brick ranch home.She explained how she came to buy her new home which in fact was almost the same size as the one we were walking through.She had little time then as she shuttled from one state to another. Had one home on the market while this one was being finished. Landed a transfer and had a time limit. Did not shop for a loan or even another home. She was in a hurry. Feeling pressured.We walked through the back yard, spacious and quiet with lots of trees. She looked carefully at the exterior construction. She looked under the decking and asked about drainage. She walked carefully through each room taking an inventory of size and light.Now she had time. And I encouraged her to take the time to think about where she is and where she thinks she wants to be and why and, of course, the dollars.Patience is often the most prized tool in our real estate business. Patience to wait for the right buyer, to find the right home and to consider all of your options well before taking any step.
