Draft DayNext up on the clock: 2013 Homebuyers

I call myself a moderate NFL footbal fan.  I have a favorite team, I check in for updates most Sundays of the season, and yes, I am in a fantasy league.  In Oklahoma, they consider my football addiction un-impressive, recreational usage at best. I think of it as moderation.  But more than the games, I love watching the NFL draft.

"With the first pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the favorite team that an entire city attaches too has deicided...."

I love watching these guys go through their decision process.  Crunching their numbers they process hudreds of milliions of dollars in decisions.  I love watching them work the phones, check their reports, talk, think and then... Wham!  They make their decision.   

"And now, next up on the clock, is the next team."

I mean, that's it.  You only get one pick at this moment.  You have to live with it for a long time.  A lot of money, that can't be afforded to be lost, is committed; huge gains and opportunities for even more gain are at stake.  And during this whole process there is a clock, that keeps ticking, and eventually says "decide now or miss out forever".

Decisions,  and the consequences they create, are such a tittlating aspect of life.  And from the experience I believe the most empowering lesson is the confidence that is built when someone realizes they can survive all consequences.  It is after all just a decision.  And others can be made later.

In Tulsa, OK, the real estate market the next up on the clock is the buyer who wants to buy a house in 2013.  

Inventories are low, and there is little to no low hanging fruit. An opportunity must be realized quickly and most important: you must be prepared to strike quick.

In this market the quick and prepared will out-gain the over thinker; the only time for patient thinking is before the clock starts.  Once the opportunity opens up a buyer must rely on their preparedness, their consulting team and their guts.  And they must make a decision.  Or watch all of the opportunities go elsewhere.

Get pre-qualified and be ready to strike quick if you want to buy a house in Tulsa, OK.

John, like the NFL draft, you really need to put your best foot forward as a buyer. Be ready, willing and able to make an offer and go after the "best available" house.

Who wants to buy a house?  They better get prepared... if they do. Call the lender and get qualified or produce proof of resources, and then get busy and get it done.
