A New Perspective On Working With Buyers Who Are "Upsizing"

A little over a year ago Dick Greenberg turned me on to Twisted Sifter, and if you subscribe, everyday you'll receive some crazy, interesting videos and photographs. I love it!

When I saw this particular video I was reminded of a client we're currently working with who is living in a beautiful home, but who wants something bigger and more luxurious. Great. Their stated objective is to move every two to three years.  

Next time you are working with buyers who keep purchasing a larger home every few years, think of this:

Hi Tom - TwistedSifter is fun! I saw this the other day and thought immedaitely of real estate. If only our clients were as orderly and focused as the hermit crabs.

We laugh at these guys at the beach, you see them checking out shells to live in.  This is fun stuff.  A

Tom, this is fascinating, I had no idea they did this. Hermit crabs are more organized than even the most experienced buyer I've ever worked with.

Dick--I'm so grateful you told me about this. It's really fun to see what's coming up next!

R & A--I think the different shells they find are crazy. 

Amanda--I think this is so cool! And you're right, don't you wish you had a whole series of buyers all lined up so that when one moves you have 12 sales all at once!

Tom, Most of my buyers are heading in the opposite direction, bigger to smaller!  I guess they're not hermit crabs :)
