Which One Of These Is Not Like The Others?

Which one?An orange

A bowling ball

A cantelope

A coconut

Many moons ago, when I was a kid back in my Captain Kangaroo, Sesame Street and Electric Company watching days, the shows tried to teach you things.

They put pictures like the four items I listed on a board, played a little music and asked "Which one of these things is not like the others?"

They're all round, so they're all the same!

Oh wait, one of them you CAN'T eat!

Well, the years may pass but I'm still faced with versions of this test on a regular basis.

4 bedroom house

2 car garage

In Mason School District

 $150,000 selling price

We were doing SO well until we got to that last number!  That price just isn't happening with the other 3.

So if that price is critical, we need to adjust one of the other criteria to make things happen.

Can 3 bedrooms work?

Maybe parking out in the snow isn't a no can do after all?

Or maybe we need to leave Mason and head a bit further out where prices aren't as high?

Basically any time we have a want list of home characteristics, location and price, part of the evaluation is determining if those criteria are possible to meet.

Will it be easy?

Will it be difficult?

Will it be impossible?

And depending on home availability and where we fall on the difficulty list, it may be time to ask if any criteria can be adjusted to move from the impossible to the merely difficult, or even all the way to easy.

It's my job to let you as my buyer client to know what I can and can't do.  You make the decisions, I'll provide the guidance.
