Buying and Selling a Florida Home: In real estate and life, there is always a rear view mirror.

In life we sometimes find ourselves looking back at what has happened - not necessarily to make changes - but to see where we have been along the journey.

In real estate the same can be true.

If you are a seller and your Brevard County, Florida home has been on the market for a long time and you have lowered your listing price and still it is sitting, you may be tempted to look in the rear view mirror.

Where would you be today if the listing price had been more competitive?  What if you had followed the 30-10-10 rule of selling your home?

If you are a buyer in a rising market (such as the current Brevard County, Florida real estate market) you may be tempted to look back and wonder how much more home you may have gotten six to twelve months ago for the same price. as you'll pay now.

The rear view mirror is a valuable safety tool when driving a car but when buying or selling a home it may be more productive to focus on where you are today and not the past.

The decision to buy or sell, with a clearly stated goal, is a major life event.  Make sure you have only the best advice and help when you are ready to buy or sell your Florida home.
