An agent, Andrew, in our office always has a fun fact to share. One last week was "at any one time there are 60,000 people in the skies across the United States"
That is a good size city!! So how does that relate to real estate. You have to understand my sense of imagination and humour runs the gamut. So I thought and thought about this.
Soaring to new heights. Yes, I thought to myself, the seat I sit in on the plane is like real estate. I am renting/buying it for a short period. And I have to deal with my neighbors just like real estate, I have to know my boundaries. I try to keep my thighs from spilling over. Tuck my shoulders in and elbows in, especially in the middle seat. Of course my neighbor may not always be so gracious. Taking up my part of my small real estate by hogging the armrests, polluting the air, and then they want to talk!! Oh my goodness, I thought this little piece of real estate was mine and you cannot intrude on my space. Sometimes when I move in, the area is spotless, other times not so. What about the disclosures of who was here before me?
What about easements if you are seated in the window seat and have to go? I mean to the bathroom. What if they are not granting access? Holding it is tough. Very tight squeeze and sometimes you have to wait for important people to pass, like the stewards and stewardesses, who in real life could be similar to the city services department. They clean up, provide help when needed, act like a cop if you are not obeying the rules.
But back to your little spot of real estate in sky. Very small lot, cannot be considered spacious unless you are in first class. Then you are talking the upscale, gated community real estate. Wow those extra fees will pay for everything!
So as you fly across the United States this holiday season, think about your little lot of real estate in the sky. Be thankful to arrive at your destination and enjoy your holidays!
