pei: "If You Snooze, You Lose" - Prince Edward Island, Canada - 02/27/11 01:47 AM
"If you snooze you lose" or "don't wait for spring, do it now" are fairly well known expressions that have a lot of truth in them. They certainly are very applicable in the Real Estate business. Recently here in PEI, this Realtor told two different clients to get an offer in and "do it now". Neither of the clients took my suggestion, and , guess what, both of them lost out in buying their properties. Maybe it's because the clients  think a Realtor is giving this advice for their own self-serving interest or maybe they think that there is time to … (3 comments)
