>I Need to Wake Up

>Back in 1994 in Houston, TX I was coming back from a long day at my Army Reserve Training weekend. It was late at night and I was exhausted. The drive was a 25 minute drive across town and I wasn’t looking forward to it. The next thing I know I pulled into my driveway and I didn’t even remember driving home. I was so tired and on auto-pilot that I wasn’t even really processing the commute home. It scared me.

Something very similar causes me grave concern. Actually it made me sick to my stomach last night as I realized that my mindset had slipped into wanting more stuff instead investing more time and resources into the lives of people that are hurting physically and spiritually. I believe many us as Christians have become lulled asleep by a passionate pursuit to be comfortable and entertained. There seems to be a desire to accumulate wealth and more “stuff” instead of using that same drive to invest in the true mission of the Church. This world is temporary yet we don’t seem to act like it. We are on auto-pilot pursuing this “American Dream.”

Bottom Line: How is our lifestyle different from the world in regard to how we spend our time and money?

Let’s Wake Up,

  1. Thanks for the new stuff you have uncovered in your article. One thing I’d like to comment on is that FSBO associations are built with time. By presenting yourself to owners the first weekend their FSBO is definitely announced, prior to the masses commence calling on Thursday, you create a good association. By mailing them resources, educational supplies, free accounts, and forms, you become a great ally. By subtracting a personal fascination with them in addition to their situation, you build a solid connection that, on many occasions, pays off in the event the owners opt with a real estate agent they know and trust – preferably you.

  2. Thanks for the something totally new you have unveiled in your blog post. One thing I would like to reply to is that FSBO human relationships are built over time. By presenting yourself to owners the first weekend their FSBO will be announced, ahead of masses get started calling on Wednesday, you develop a good network. By sending them tools, educational materials, free reports, and forms, you become a good ally. Through a personal desire for them and their circumstance, you generate a solid relationship that, oftentimes, pays off in the event the owners decide to go with a representative they know as well as trust – preferably you actually.

  3. I have noticed that over the course of building a relationship with real estate managers, you’ll be able to come to understand that, in most real estate transaction, a commission amount is paid. All things considered, FSBO sellers really don’t “save” the commission. Rather, they try to win the commission by doing a strong agent’s task. In doing so, they expend their money and time to carry out, as best they might, the assignments of an adviser. Those tasks include exposing the home by marketing, introducing the home to willing buyers, building a sense of buyer emergency in order to prompt an offer, arranging home inspections, taking on qualification assessments with the mortgage lender, supervising maintenance tasks, and facilitating the closing.
