"You gotta know when to hold 'em
Know when to fold 'em
Know when to walk away
Know when to run
You never count your money
When you're sitting at the table
There'll be time enough for counting
When the dealings done...."
In Memory of Kenny Rogers (8/21/1938- 3/20/2020)
Something everyone who buys or sells real estate wants to know is how much is it worth? When selling property, a good real estate agent will run the comps, explain the numbers, and determine the approximate net worth. It is during the negotiations that I find some people get their approximate net worth confused by their self-worth. Self-worth and net worth are not the same. What a seller perceives are valuable may not be determined as valuable to the buyer and/or an appraiser. Something else buyers and sellers need to understand is that bigger isn't always better, the desire to acquire doesn't make you more powerful, and what you have that is better may not be as valuable as you think. The value of what you paid today for anything you own could either be more or less valuable over time. When you're dealing with valuables, nothing is guaranteed.
"To see the world, things dangerous to come, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life."
The way I see it, the purpose of life is to meet challenges head on, and recognize lifes also gives us opportunities. Without failure, there wouldn't be as many success stories and legacies. For example, Kenny Rogers was born poor in Houston, Texas. He was the fourth child of eight with Irish and Native American ancestry. Kenny Rogers grew up in a Federal Housing Project. There are many people who grew up poor and lived in the projects. But it doesn't mean they remained poor. Kenny Rogers is a great example of someone who achieved wealth and success.
