Next 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.
