New Year Challenge: Change

What could happen if you Changed Yourself?

Each day in our lives, we hope and pray for a better day, that things should improve in one area or another. But all too often, all we do is hope and pray. That is not enough. We have to think, act and speak differently. If we don’t change how we think, speak and act, we are bound to repeat the same problems or mistakes that gives us a situation we want changed. So how do we change things?

thThe hardest part of change is thinking differently. You have to challenge your own assumptions, including most delicately, the sense of who you are. You may not be who you really think you are. Never forget, we judge others by their actions, but we judge ourselves by our intentions.
Yes, you meant to help someone with a project, you intended to give charity, you were planning on inviting your friends over for dinner, but if you didn’t do it, in their minds you had no intention, and you are judged as such.

Now find someone you completely trust, who has your interest at heart and who can give you constructive criticism. It is often better for a friend to be this person than a spouse. And tell the person to try to remove personal bias (of how you may have hurt them or been inconsiderate). It has to be coming from a place of true concern for you. Start with one area. Don’t take on your whole life at one time. What you may realize is that you may not be perceived the way you perceive yourself. So work on correcting the balance and you will immediately feel more content and balanced inside.

2 Reasons NOW is the Time to Sell

We’re through the holiday’s, the family has started to get back in the groove of the daily hustle of things and things are starting to settle down again.

So why would now be the time to think about selling your home? In the Middle of the school year?! Really?

Yes Really, and there are TWO main reasons for this!

1.) There is even less competition right now (in our already tight market). A lot of seller’s tend to wait until Spring to list their homes, there’s nothing wrong with that at all, but why wait until everyone puts their homes on the market and buyer’s have their choice?

2.) Buyer’s are Eager!!! Really they are! Interest rates have been terrific for awhile now, but they’re starting to increase, and buyer’s are getting anxious to buy before they rise! There’s nothing out there fir

What does this mean for you as a seller?

  • Eager buyers + low inventory levels
  • You could list your home now, likely see a lot of activity and sell quickly, possibly with multiple offers!
