The Wedding Plan
Are you married? Did you have a big wedding? Did it cost thousands of dollars? If so, then you will easily relate to the following. If you're not married, you'll still appreciate the logic...
If you've fallen in love and you're going to have a wedding, then you need to plan for it. Let's say the big day is close to a year away. Will you wait until the 'month' before to arrange the church or hall, the invitations, the wedding party wardrobe, the flowers, the rings, the photographer, the reception room, the caterer, the dinner menu, the music, etc, etc? Likely not, because your 'instinct' understands this checklist will take considerable time and planning. You'll need to reserve the church or hall months in advance, since 'your' wedding will not be the only one performed at that locale. And all the other items require special care and attention, and input from friends, family, and the business professionals you'll hire to service all your needs, so this particular day will be the huge event you're expecting.
How's your instinct when it comes to finding a home? Are you currently doing things on your own, talking with REALTORS® from 'signs and ads', who are actually representing the Sellers of those properties, thinking this is the ideal way to purchase? Are you then hoping you can negotiate favourable terms, and everything will magically come together very quickly and smoothly? Does your instinct not ask, "Am I choosing the best and most reliable path?"
