Changing Markets, Changing Season and Just Plain CHANGE! and OPPORTUNITY!

Changing Markets, Changing Seasons:
The Many Colors of a Change and Opportunity

CHANGE is right here, right now, and so is Opportunity
— In your routine— in where you live—
and possibly even in the way you live.
Change is one life-process
with which we all must deal and which we all share.

Here in the mountains, just outside my door
evidence of change has sprinkled itself in white.

Change –by the very fact that
it is universally understood
as a fact of being in the world
actually brings with it a strong sense of belonging.
(See yesterday’s BLOG entry.)

A few thoughts on CHANGE in the practice of real estate

Whether that change involves moving from a family farm into the city, or relocating from another state to the Appalachians and the Greater Asheville area, our clients voluntarily are  initiating four all-important “seasons”— the sweet Spring of Optimism, the Summer of Informed Pessimism, the Bright Autumn of Realism, and finally the Clear Winter of Integration and Evaluation. Along the way, we REALTORS®, inherit a lucky chance to build meaningful communication and relationships.

Take for example the case of Change in terms of Real Estate Investors

Whether clients are involved in 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges, IRA investments or personal transactions, they have so much at stake. Their future is in the balance. There are the Great Unknowns, the Possible Gains, the Questions of Losses, the Significance Factors, and even the Risk of NOT Risking to consider. And all of these immersions in CHANGE are grand opportunities for REALTORS® . We can be of real service, because we know that even when our clients make a change that they plan for, and look forward to, they can encounter some very rocky times, and we can offer resources as needed.

Come to think of it

As I reflect on my own real estate investment strategy over the years, I find that some of those changes that at the time seemed negative and difficult, turned out to be blessings in disguise.One of the blessings is a renewed awareness of the sense of belonging, or how I "fit" in the bigger picture with all of my colorful “life tattoos”. I have come to see how coming to grips with change in my life not only lays the foundation of belonging in my community, but has turned out to be a framework for inspiration in the days and years to come.
