The More Things Change the More They Stay the Same

The more things change the more they stay the same. In other words change is inevitable. The only thing that won't change is change itself. Well, what has changed for me during the past 10 years?


The important things are to learn from change as history repeats itself. Those that can observe changes while they are occuring can benefit fromthem. For example 10 years ago, during the real estate down turn starting in 2006 through 2011 many benefited from short sale specialization, fix and flip opportunities (buy low, rent out and sell high) and buying a live in home of your own at a bargain price. 


What does change mean. Well one quote, I like is:


"Don't look back someone (or thing) may be gaining on you!"
