REAL ESTATE is about Change & Life’s Process. Our companions are Time, Patience & the Unexpected.
Late spring 2012, my seller stated lets sell. And it would be LATE SUMMER or EARLY FALL when we would sell his home. That would be the right time for him to sell his home.
Actually this was the 2nd beginning to sell his truly lovingly crafted retreat in the city.
We started the year before at the same time of the year. I usually encourage my clients to share their intentions for selling and envision their goals. John my seller felt ready move into the next stage of his life in a new location. We shared all the wonderful places we have visited in our lives and hopes to perhaps live one day. John was planning to follow a long held curiosity with the PNW indigenous tribal areas of Oregon and Idaho. And then a visit out of the country to scout out potential areas for his new life and future home.
One of his principal hopes was to find the perfect buyers for his masterpiece home. Folks that really appreciated not only his labor of love, but they themselves had some special connection and brought something to compliment the unique qualities of this property.
Summer 2011 was a slow marketing time in this neighborhood. However , my seller was undaunted. and confidently predicted an end of summer that perfect buyer would be attracted. I eyeballed each showing for that perfect buyer. By late summer John was ready for a break.
With the winter rains approaching , we had a hot Vietnamese lunch together and he considered trying to sell himself. Although in the healing profession, John is truly exceptional person and is so capable and could do just about anything himself if he applied himself. I didn’t exactly encourage him, but offered help if he needed it.
