The past couple of months have been busy in Alamance County, NC real estate! Buyers are buying, investors are scooping up the deals, there's plenty of houses on the market, school is near the end and Spring Fever has sprung! And that's a good thing in this "questionable economy". But I have spent a lot of time on the evenings and weekends showing houses and doing Open Houses. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining because that's what we do as Realtors, but sometimes, it's nice to just have a day to relax! Being a Real Estate Agent is definitely a job where you could work almost 24/7. Buying or selling a house is definitley not an overnight accomplishment. It takes time. I know a lot of real estate agents, especially those that have been in the business for years say "you don't have to work weekends, you set your own schedule". And that is true to an extent. However, many people work Monday through Friday and can't look at houses except at night or on the weekends. And I choose to be accommodating. It really is about learning to balance life. I sometimes feel guilty for working at night, whether it's working on paperwork or showing houses because I have three small children. I definitely don't want to miss these important years. For me, Sunday is my favorite day of the week with my family. We go to church together, eat lunch with family, come home for "rest" time and then hang out at night. Now that schedule changes of course if I'm working. But on those days where there's no Open Houses, paperwork or showings,.....it's nice to relax and just enjoy life! After all, that's what life is about, right?
