Lets ask for another 2 or 3 hours

Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities 303302


Just to be upfront, this has nothing to do with needing a bit more time to respond to an offer. That does happen as well, and the easiest way to get those hours would be to ask for a notice from the Buyer stating the offer time is extended, or resubmit the offer with additional time. This happens in part when the Seller is looking at multiple offers, or needing to consult with a contractor about expected repair requests.

There I made this post about Real Estate. See what I did there?

However, my real intent with this post was to see if we, as a group, could lobby whomever for an additional 2 to 3 hours in a day. I really need those hours right now just to get everything done that I need and want to do. Where do I vote for this?

Good luck with that! I used to feel the same until I read something that pointed out the that we all only have 24 hours per day. Some people seem to get an awful lot done, and some not. It's up to us to use those 24 hours on the things that are the most important to us!

Hello Pater - I have heard of the four-day workweek and other similar philosophies for life.  Lengthening the day beyond 24 hours may be desired by some but working efficiently/productively might be a bit easier to achieve.  Maybe...

Hi Peter- you know the old adage that the larger a woman's purse, the more she'll put into it? Well, those 2 or 3 hours will mean that we'll try to stuff even more into a 26 or 27 hour day as we would a 24 hour day and still wish for more time.
