People often associate savoring with food, something so good it conjures up good, pleasant, sweet memories or perhaps so bad it automatically creates a sour taste in your mouth and you know you don’t want that again. Or yes! I want a positive experience. When buying or selling a home it helps to be aware of what you like and don’t like. Savoring is actually a positive form of mindfulness, a state of mind achieved by focusing on the present moment your thoughts, feelings, and sensations. Everything we do different is an experience. When selling a home, one door shuts. After you buy a home, another door opens.




Enjoy the time you have in whatever chapter you are in your life. If you are selling, challenge those overwhelming moments by asking for help from people you know, like, and trust. But remember, nobody knows you, better than you. Breathe. Relax. Think about what you really need to have and what makes sense to let go. Window treatments you currently have may be beautiful, but will they look just as good in your new house? If you end up somewhere else with tall windows, will the drapes be too short? Thinking through every action you take takes critical thinking.

Relishing what is beneficial for your well-being helps to put things into perspective. Will a two-story be better than you’re a one-story home? Or will your life be simpler and less confusing about where you put things if you are going from two-story to one-story? Or will a two-story be better for the amount of people who will occupy or stay for longer visits in your home?

Appreciating the beauty of nature, light, colors, textures, scents, sounds, the feeling of the neighborhood and the community. If ambiance matters, what makes you happiest? What about the seasons of the year? Can you appreciate your location and changing of the seasons? Do trees and landscaping, flowerbeds, or views matter?  

Cherishing what you have and sharing what you no longer need is an act of courage. If what you keep remains packed up and stuffed in a closet, attic, or storage unit, is it really making you happy or are you wasting valuable space? You owe yourself contentment.

In sum, if savoring the moments creates happiness and better opportunities, then your decisions are worth it! Remember, you can’t appreciate the sun if all you see are clouds. The more you savor the things that creates joy and positive experiences, the more likely better days are yet to come ---Patricia Feager

Good morning Patricia. Nice thoughts to ponder as you enter the process. Unfortunately for many these thoughts quickly fade as the process drags on. Enjoy your day

Wayne Martin - it's hard to think clearly when you live in the shadows of doubt. I like to listen to what my clients have to say first and then choose my words carefully. Information overload can be a problem. My efforts were to make this a positive post. Thanks for  your feedback!

I really like your idea of savoring moments during the buying and selling process and I am sure that will make it less stressful.  Buying or selling a home usually takes a large emotional toll on people.

Hello Patricia - moments matter and while some may matter more than others, there is a lot to savor about each of them.

Good morning, Patricia... I've long said that the buying and selling process is only as stressful as the buyer or seller and/or their agent makes it to be.

When I used to practice Mixed Martial Arts, we had this saying that started each session, Look for the Good.  It is so easy to find the bad in everything.  It takes a little work to look for the good, but is so much more rewarding. We close on a home today that was a real challenge to get on the market.  It is an exciting day today and I will remember that success!

Patricia "sweet memories" or "sour taste" can both leave an ever lasting imprint on our minds.

Hi Patricia:

I think savoring the moments of buying or selling is just the right way to think about, especially when things don't quite go the way one expects. Enjoying, relishing, appreciating and cherishing say it all.

I always tell clients to focus on the ultimate goal as well, since the path to that goal is not always a smooth one. Sometimes it's just about having the right attitude and perspective...savoring!
