Maine Real Estate For Sale !


When You Watch Movies, Read Books, Not Like In Real Estate Home Sales.

You settle in to a good movie during a blustery night when it's raining cats and dogs.

Or you curl up near a warm crackling fireplace to open a new book. Let it snow outside. Start the journey not knowing what is coming up next, warm as toast inside. That's the surprise, journey, fun of the new and unknown. Part of the entertainment not knowing how things are going to turn out. Using your vivid imagination to drive the process. Take you places between your ears, behind your eyes.

SSsshhhh... don't ruin it. You maine winter photodon't want someone that already saw the movie, read the book spilling the beans.

On what happens next before it does.

And could you pass that bowl of cheese curls... will you please?

ME real estate home sales, not like that.

Way more serious, high stakes, life changing good or bad.

What to expect, to know about the pitfalls, twists and turns upfront in the Maine home list and sell.

Works best to avoid sucker punch surprises. The things that happen without warning if unaware, not told about in the beginning as the stage, story line is set. Because the price of a movie rental, the purchase of a good book if things go sour is one thing. The bad taste in your mouth does not last.

But if the expectation of a Maine home purchase or sale goes south, that is one big expensive lesson you never recover from fully. The bitter taste, disappointment becomes like gravity holding you down for the rest of your life. When you look in the rearview mirror and feel badly, depressed. If you can not get a grip, are on the floor mat with grief, maine lake scene photoregret. It does not have to be that way if handled professionally.

Expectations, tell me about the real estate process in the ever changing, fast paced, more complex than ever arena of Maine home sales.

Or any kind of property listing list, market, sell. Not just involving Maine homes, houses.

Means constant education, steady communication, paying eagle eye close attention.

To all the red flags. The little quirks of the emotional people buying, selling with major clocks ticking. Involved in the winding, snaking path that extends to banks, inspectors, lawyers, repairmen, etc.

Having a hand, a say. From the upfront property listing stage. Down to the wire. To the Maine real estate home sale closing celebration. (Fingers crossed.)

Where three trees are killed to generate the paperwork stacks.

For the sign here, here and only thirty eight more times... (pointing) here.

Can you write with both hands if one becomes tired reading, acknowledging all the fine print?

Shanna ... Here to take hands of buyers, sellers, help work through the gears of list to sell. It's a delicious cycle of list, market, sell (repeat) but how you get the skill sets develop the talents from being around a few years. Picking up much.

Good morning Andrew. You could write a book about your two photos, but it is definitely not like what it takes to sell real estate. Photos help, but a little help from you is needed.

I can scribble poorly with both hands Andrew.

Joe ... I hunt shooting with a very long telephoto wide lens. Maine's beauty is all around. Had a happy buyer tell me after a closing this week who relocated back to Maine where he grew up ask me if I know why Maine was so special. I said location away from people? He said exactly, you have to travel further up the trail to get away from people. Too many people mess up an area with traffic, crime, hurry scurry and noise, smells, no space. We are the place with the space.

Conrad ... Hen scratchings. You would think the more writing on contracts, extensions, personal notes, etc your handwriting would improve. Not look mass produced, a line from a polygraph quickly splashed with the ball point, pencil, felt tip marker.

Andrew, real estate is not for the faint at heart, and only practiced by those with experience, but then there are the others.....

A cold night . . . . a good movie . . . . a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream . . . . life is good.

Good luck and success.

Real estate is an adventure and we have to learn how best to navigate through it. I think you have mastered it nicely.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) over 6 years ago

Debbie ... Thanks. As you know, the way you did it last year, a decade, 30 years ago is all different. Real estate is ever changing and requires reinventing the way we do it. Or die on the vine being analog in a digital age.
