Location, Location, Location...But Where?1/17/2015
My family and I went on vacation over the winter break. There were 13 of us. Meaning, we had 13 different opinions, needs, and wants. We had 13 different schedules. We had 13 of everything.
Each morning I would go down to the pool area to carve out space for my family of 13. I would do "battle" with other vacationing families. Each of us precariously placing books, hats, and towels in just the right position to lay our claim on lounge chairs.
The first couple of days were tough. People had their established territories. How was I going to fit 13 people into this area? How was I going to find morning sun (and shade), afternoon sun (and shade), lounge chairs for 12, upright chair for 1, near the snack bar, near the drink bar, beside the pool, and out of the way of splashing kids? Each one of us had an ideal vision of the perfect place to sit. Yet, we all wanted to be together.
The morning of the third day I found the solution. Dapple sun for some...strong rays for others. Proper chair configuration. Near the food and drinks. Ankle dipping and full swimming. And, a hammock for me to swing in while I read my book. The answer...LOCATION!
How does my family vacation apply to your home buying? I'll take the time to help you find your location. I'll help you find the perfect sun/shade needs. Find a home near the places you need and visit. (But, I can't promise you a hammock.)
