Check That Holiday Gift List Again ...

Check That Holiday Gift List Again ...

 

 

     Are YOU on it anywhere??

 

   What I mean is ... often we can get so busy doing all the right things for others during the Holidays, that we overlook ourselves.

 

     Just think all you've had to do and accomplish this Holiday Season.  You've definitely proven that you have the skills to plan, budget, coordinate, organize, and deliver the goods.  Your list of accomplishments is really quite amazing.

 

     But ... check through all the important people and "to do's" on your Holidays list.  Did you find yourself and your needs anywhere? Hmmmmm ....

 

     If you're a Renter:  Perhaps you've been tossing around the idea of buying in the coming year.  The feasibility of it.  Wondering what options you might have. 

 

     Or if you presently own a home:  You may have been dreaming of moving into a larger, newer home.  One located in another area, another school district, or closer to work.  

 

     There are hundreds of reasons why you may be hoping that home buying is in your future.  Still, you've hesitated and put yourself and your dreams on the backburner ...

 

    

     But Consider:  The many skills you've called into play when preparing for the Holidays ...

  • Planning
  • Budgeting
  • Coordinating
  • Organizing
  • Delivery

 

     and you see that ... put to work on your own behalf ... that very same set of skills will help tremendously during your home search and financing process.  

 

     As with Holiday shopping, the hardest part of home buying is often just getting yourself started.  But you CAN do it.  You've already proven you've got the right skills to get it done successfully.

 

     If you're a hopeful 2016 first-time home buyer ... repeat buyer ... or someone hoping to refinance, put yourself back on your Holiday List, then contact me.  Turn your Holiday Wishes into reality ...

Hello Gene! I like your call to action - people who have held off making their housing wishes come true should certainly call you and treat themselves.

Posted by Lottie Kendall, Serving San Francisco and the Silicon Valley (Compass) almost 3 years ago

Too often I think potential buyers are somewhat intimidated by "the process", Lottie Kendall.  When in reality they just need to approach it much like they do other tasks ... using the same talents.  The media has made the process seem staggering when it's really not ...

Well said Gene, you have a great writing technique.

Gene,  I like your tie in with holiday shopping, skills, and taking the first step to home ownership, down-sizing or moving to a bigger or new home.  Take the first step ...

Merry Christmas.

This is quite brilliant Gene!  It should be featured!  Well done!

Hi Gene - Anyone thinking about buying a home in the Chicago area would get some real momentum going by having you on their team.

Posted by Dick Greenberg, Northern Colorado Residential Real Estate (New Paradigm Partners LLC) almost 3 years ago

I can't even focus on 2016, we are just right out straight. I'm not going to focus on doing anything different, just more of the same, for now.

You have put together an outstanding thought process going into next year.

     A good analogy, Gene.  I know people who are absolutely frazzled from the effort they put into making this a "perfect" Christmas Season.  You are right - they should have the same determination to improve their housing situation!

Posted by Fred Griffin, Licensed Florida Real Estate Broker (Fred Griffin Real Estate) almost 3 years ago

Gene you are right the hardest part of most things is simply to get started, and that may be even more true of the home buying process.

Gene- Buyers in the Chicago area should give you a call for assistance and guidance when purchasing a home.

Hi Gene.  Very interesting blog.  Procrastination kills a lot of dreams.

Posted by Conrad Allen, Webster, Ma, Realtor (Re/Max Professional Associates) almost 3 years ago

Thank you so much, Noah Seidenberg ... you're kind ...

I think that first step ... any form of contact ... is the biggest hurdle to overcome too, Kathleen Daniels.  Once most do it, they're relieved ...

Thank you so much, Sharon Tara!

I appreciate the kind words and support, Dick Greenberg ... and I hope many just call or contact me with questions.  Best place to start ...

If it ain't broken, why try to fix it, Joe Petrowsky?  Best of luck to you in 2016!

It's truly the same set of skills put to work, Fred Griffin ... they just need to get started and ask their questions!

I think the media has portrayed Lenders as the Boogeyman .. and made the process seem daunting.  It takes concentration and work, yes ... but it can be accomplished fairly easily if working with the right professionals, George Souto.  We won't bite!

Awww, thank you Kathy Streib ... I appreciate your kind words ...

And makes the task seem harder to tackle, Conrad Allen ... it's not ... and asking questions is a great way to begin the journey ...

I find that many assume they'll have trouble ... when in actuality they have few issues to tackle, Deanna Early.  Their fears caused them to hesitate to ask questions ... and that's what we need to work on.  Just getting them to talk to us and ask questions ...
