I find it's about dropping all ego and just caring about the best result possible for all involved. There's an art to it all.

On The Importance of Compromise


Compromise Is Important in Real Estate


Despite the timing, this post has nothing to do with politics.  


It is about real estate.   


But, let’s start with the basics.  From Merriam-Webster comes this simple definition of compromise:   


  • a way of reaching agreement in which each person or group gives up something that was wanted in order to end an argument or dispute


  • Something that combines qualities of two different things


  • A change that makes something worse and that is not done for a good reason


Yikes, that’s the simple definition?  Number three sounds downright horrible.   Number one is better and two sounds pretty good. Let me continue on this road of discovery....


I love a good quote and found these on compromise --- believe me I had to sift through a lot to find these:


They say it is better to be poor and happy than rich and miserable, but how about a compromise like moderately rich and just moody?

Princess Diana


Don't compromise yourself. You are all you've got.

Janis Joplin


A lean compromise is better than a fat lawsuit.

George Herbert


Compromise in Real Estate


Okay, I might be getting a little closer.  Some humor always help but I’m still not quite feeling warm and fuzzy with compromise.   How about you?


But let’s face it.  It’s something we need to expect when working with buyers(and sellers) too in real estate.


The element of compromise is a part of real estate.  That word -- spoken or not -- is a part of the transaction.


My suggestion -- get used to it.  Don’t give up on the things that are so important but be realistic about the outcome.   Or maybe I need to use a another word....Suggestions?
