While driving through the town square in the center of Carlisle, PA, I can get to my home by going straight (South), by making a right turn (West) or by making a left turn (East).
All options will get me home in approximately the same amount of time under normal traffic conditions.
However, since I've lived in the area for almost seventeen years I have learned that one may want to avoid going near Dickinson College or Carlisle High School (East) after a sport event has just ended since traffic tends to be extra heavy.
It might be best to also avoid going straight (south) around 2:30pm on weekdays since Lamberton Middle School will be dismissing students and congestion should be expected as the crossing guards are diligently trying to keep students safe at the crosswalk between the middle school and the shopping plaza.
The bottom line is that I have found that there's usually more than one way to
get from Point A to Point B...and sometimes there are two, three, four or more ways to get to a final destination but only someone that knows an area well can help to predict what might be the fastest and possibly the most seamless way to get from Point A to Point B.
Selling a home might seem like an easily accomplished task. Yet I can assure you that between Point A and Point B there can be a mixture of traffic jams, red lights, congestion and avoidable cliffs.
It IS in Your BEST Interest to have a Realtor® to guide you through the process and to help navigate the route.
