Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations: Ignorance Is Not Bliss

Ignorance Is Not Bliss

salt of the earthWhen I was younger I could pretty much eat anything I wanted without repercussion.  I didn't care about calorie content or how much salt was in the food.  I might even ADD some salt if I thought it needed it.

Well, I got older and things changed, and now I need to REALLY pay attention to my salt intake.  Get too "wild" and all I have to do is look at my swollen feet to know it.  So a lot of foods I used to love have been banned from my diet.   The reality is MOST prepared food that goes in the microwave or comes from a drive thru is pretty atrocious when it comes to salt.  Ignorance is NOT bliss in my case.

And you know where else ignorance is NOT bliss?  Buying and selling homes.  As a home buyer or seller, you REALLY need to know all the pertinent information:

The legal requirements for the process.


Information about schools, taxes, HOA fees and rules.

Planned development for the area.

For new construction, whether the pricing is reasonable.

The builder's reputation.

What are good options and what are bad options.

Get the drift?  There is a LOT of information that is needed, and in this case ignorance is NOT bliss.  In fact, ignorance can be VERY, VERY costly.  And if you don't buy or sell a home, you really shouldn't be expected to know all the things you need to know.

Who does?  An experienced real estate agent.  It's our job to get you to bliss, but WITH all the information you need.

So true about both Salt and Real Estate - Ignorance can be unhealthy and costly (I guess in more ways than one).  Thanks for the great analogy and Blog Liz and Bill Spear

Bill- you are so right with this one. Sellers and buyers don't want their ignorance to derail the sale or purchase of their home.
