We all have desires to thrive in our lives. Yet, many of us focus our attention on limiting beliefs. As a dear friend says" beliefs argue with desires." And eventually, beliefs kill desires,
As I read posts that describe the real estate market in individual cities and communities, it seems to me that everyone is in agreement that inventory is "razor thin", non-existent, etc.
When by chance a home comes on the market, a new litany emerges...of 50 offers, overbid, etc. If I were to argue that you can still find the perfect home at a decent price, everyone would jump all over me stating facts and statistics.
They would also tell me that I am dreamer, unrealistic and refuse to see the truth. They would further their wise arguments by showing statistics, and back it up with various publications...It is true, they say!
Last November, we decided to get a new car. We knew exactly what we wanted, the model, the body color and the interior, as well as what we were willing to pay for it.
Some of the dealers told us "Impossible!" Others said we would have to pay a premium to get it. Another said that the company had stopped making that model, and the car is scarcer than hen's teeth...And they had researched the whole of Western United States, including Hawaii.
Our car was just 60 miles away, in a small dealership, and the dealer wanted to sell it. And our new salesperson and his manager made it happen by sending a car transport, and our car arrived two days later. The next day after the dealer prep, we signed the papers.
I hear you, "you say it is just a car not a home..." Our client was contacted by a developer wanting to develop two homes on a large lot. She had a listing with a dated luxury home on a large lot that would be suitable. However, the community had restrictions on subdivisions.
She called the powers that be to find out if that lot could be subdivided. Upon receiving the positive response, she sold the property. It sold for what it was listed at.
I can tell as you are reading this, you think this is the exception. Those who thrive in any market condition are exceptional! They see possibilities, whereas others see the impossibilities, and keep talking about it!
