With St. Patrick’s Day this month, I got to thinking about “luck” and what it means in real estate. Does luck have a place in real estate?
For decades, probably even before the turn of the century, real estate has always been jokingly about location, location, location but is there more to it than that? Is it luck? Did you just happen to find your dream home? Did your house just happen to go under contract in one day with multiple offers? I say no. I believe, and even practice, that real estate is a calculated game of insight, wit, and intelligence.
That is not to say that the brand new agent who is selling the overpriced listing down the street doesn’t get “lucky” once in a while but for the most part, luck has no place in real estate. The time honored practices in real estate have never been more important. Technology is great, and I utilize all the new stuff as it comes out, but it does not take the place of putting the work into the job. We can’t just rely on throwing a sign in the yard and hoping to get “lucky”. That is an amateur’s mistake.
Why would you hire an agent that relies on luck? Most of the time, the commission on the sale of a house is a substantial amount of money, and true professional Realtors earn every penny; but it never ceases to amaze me the Buyers and Sellers who don’t educate themselves and just hire agents that rely on “luck” rather than those who have insight, wit and intelligence.
So, what does all this mean to you? Well, you are lucky you are reading this blog because we at The Joe Reed Team do not rely on luck. We rely on technology, wit, intelligence, and time honored practices to make sure that your real estate transaction is the best possible experience for you.
