Detours

 

detours

Life is full of detours.

My niece graduates from high school next summer.  If I choose to fly commercial, I can choose from flying from Cincinnati to Atlanta to Richmond or Cincinnati to Detroit to Richmond, but there will be no straight line for me.  But I'll still get there.

When I visit my parents in West Virginia, a straight line route is 243 miles.  Actual driving distance?  THREE44.  An extra 101 miles.  I've tried many different routes to get there, some are shorter in miles, but longer on time...you want slow, let me tell you about getting behind a logging truck on a small mountain road.  So I take a longer route than some offered for the convenience of four lane roads for all but the last 50 miles of my trip.

So what does any of this have to do with real estate??  Come on, EVERYTHING can be tied to real estate if you squint just right :)

Real estate is just like Life, it can have some detours.

The buyer that finds out their financing isn't going to happen.  That's a big detour for both the buyer and the seller that thought they had their home sold.

The seller that thinks Market Price Plus 20% is the right price for selling their home.  Here, let's turn left and look for the intersection of You've Got A Long Wait Lane & Ain't Nevaaaaahhhhh Gonna Happen Road.

The house that goes under contract 20 minutes after you finish the showing and while you're writing an offer on the car hood.

The home the seller decides they don't want to sell after all.

bump...bump...flashing lights and traffic cones....time to take a detour.

The good news?  Detours still get you to where you plan to go, just via a different route than you expected. 

And more good news?  If you have an experienced real estate agent on your side, they'll know how to deal with the detours and get you to where you want to be as quickly as safely possible.
