Country rock group Rascal Flatts song "Life is a Highway" was on the radio on the way in. I think it relates to life and real estate and since this is a blog about both, I thought I would just drop the chorus on you and see if we agree that there is a correlation. "Life is a highway, I want to ride it all night long, if your going my way I want to drive it all night long."
Life: We have no choice but to stay on the highway of life unless you choose to jump and jumping is not really an option. The chorus pounds the point about wanting to ride the highway which is an affirmative or positive outlook on the ride of life. And when you have a spouse, friend or family that's going the same way, it appears that driving all night long (life) could be pretty cool if not down right enjoyable.
Consequences: Now merge onto the highway going the opposite direction and you have a major ugly pile up. Choose not to ride the highway everyday and life is missed.
Real Estate: Sellers if you find a buyer that's on your house and heading your way, my advice, open the door, turn the music up and offer to let them ride all night long or at least until escrow closes. Realtors, let us do most of the driving and our clients can sit back and enjoy the ride. A quick reminder to keep the lights on so we know where we are heading.
This is Dave, from The McLaughlin Group, Sunday morning, merging in (I hope in the correct lane) and keeping it real in real estate!
