What do those have in common? More than you might think!
Both of them have current owners and potential buyers. Both of them are loved by someone, and both function as a roof over someone's head.
They represent a substantial investment to their owners respectively and both provide a prude of ownership.
One brings significantly more in price than the other, but in reality is not more important.
When I started in Real Estate I had a serious snob problem. I was showing listing and selling in the most upscale markets in the city of Houston. I really enjoyed that!
Then life changed and I began to show and sell horse properties in the country. A change occurred in me when I began to realize that the value of a person had nothing to do with what they owned or lived in.
Every property began to take on a whole new look and feel. It was in those days that I learned to look more creatively at the pluses of each one and the value to their respective buyers.
It was an invaluable lesson that was and has given me diverse friends and perspectives.
I am comfortable now showing almost anything! One bull riding facility and one rooster fighting place are still outside my abilities to market, but we will continue to work on being more open minded even to places like that!
Each property owner deserves the best marketing efforts we can produce. Our opinion about them should not reflect in our work.
