And Pondering Pockets. . .
I have become fairly familiar with pockets. Definitely not an expert but familiar. The utility of them is well-known but their significance beyond the inside world where one might usually find them may not be so obvious.
Have you ever heard of deep pockets? It’s a common enough term to be considered a target one might want to avoid. While it often means deep pockets of money and dreams of financial windfall, I wonder about deep pockets of knowledge.
Such knowledge is beneficial in real estate where other
uses of the word pocket can step forth. Pocket
listings is certainly a familiar term though perhaps spoken in secret, almost-hushed tones. Knowing what,
where and who has the listings(or any relevant information) can be quite powerful. So I guess we can say these pockets not only run deep but can have a profound impact. For practitioners as well as those interested in making a move.
Then there are pocket parks and pockets of neighborhoods where increased value as well as desirability can be found. These pockets may not be as obvious as others. So here’s another example where local knowledge remains critical. Talk about “inside” knowledge - yes, dig deep into those pockets.
And speaking of digging deep yet veering off the real estate road just a bit, is it just some hunger pains or is that an image of a tasty hot pocket? Wow, it’s been some time since I have thought, let alone have eaten, one of these. Yes, digging deeper pertains to pockets of memory too. It can be amazing(well, sorta) where pondering might lead.
And, as Arnold Schwarzenegger once said “Just remember, you can’t climb the ladder of success with your hands in your pockets”. It may help if you say it with a distinctive Austrian accent. Go ahead, try it. And that can lead to an even deeper discussion. . .
