One More

Hello all,

"One More"

So I have been talking about how to handle sellers in a changing inventory market and I have ended in a each with a way to approach your sellers in a different way, "You see Mr. and Mrs. Seller...". Well I have one more, it is my favorite however I need to caution you to only use it at the right time and with sellers you are comfortable with. Friends and Family usually. Ever have a seller who is also buying who thinks their home is worth substantially more then what the market dictates? They also believe they are crafty enough to get a deal on the buy side? You can show them all day long if they lose it on one side they should get a bit of a break on they other but they just don't get it because they think they can get it on both sides. Frustrating but if you are comfortable... "You see Mr. and Mrs. Seller the sun does not shine on your face and your ass at the same time".

Enjoy the coffee,

In the long distant past, all generations of a family lived in the same town, if not just across the road or down the lane. Each member of the family knew all the good - and the bad - about every other member (as well as all the neighbors). They worked together, played, and prayed together.
Today, families are scattered throughout the country. What we call relationships now are often only acquaintances introduced through business situations or chance meetings. They may be casual and based only on a single shared interest, i.e. golf, fitness, children's school activities, etc. These relationships may lack depth and rarely go beyond that single shared interest.
Even with family relations more scattered and unavailable to us on a day-to-day basis, our human side still has a need and desire for deeper relationships. The good news is that they are not only possible but also available to us with just a little effort.
A single common interest through school-aged children may result in having lunch together. The lunch may reveal that both individuals appreciate the arts, with one being an amateur photographer and the other a proficient watercolor artist. Further conversation may find that both are caring for aging parents, have endured similar life challenges, or witnessed brilliant successes.
In short, deep relationships, akin to those shared by families in the past, are still possible. Yes, they must be cultivated. They don't just passively occur as in the daily activities of a family. The result is the same, however, as these relationships can provide a richness to life that is missing in their absence. Try to find some missing relations today!
