Living With Intent

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882); Philosopher, Poet, Author, Essayist

Living in a reactionary pattern of crisis-of-the-moment management has the unpleasant side effect of distracting us from making the most of our unscheduled time. When the day’s demands lift, we’re all too happy to flop down and look for a little mindless recovery. On one hand, it’s understandable: Our brains need a break! On the other, we may be missing out on a great opportunity.

In life, there are activities which recharge us mentally and physically. Generally speaking, reality television and involved political arguments on Facebook are not. But activities like brisk walks, reading imaginative fiction, and building a couch cushion fort with your kids can be.

Who we become has more to do with what we choose to do with our unstructured time than it does our “must do” time. What you decide to do in this time will shape your character and the quality of your life far more than you might think. The easiest thing in the modern world is to ride a tide of distraction. With a little discipline, though, we can live a life of intent.

So how do we develop a practice of living with intent? Here’s a tip: Look at your schedule for the week and identify a few times when you’re most likely to have unstructured time. Now, structure it a little. Don’t build yourself a fresh fortress of to-do lists, but make a plan to pursue something that recharges you and reinforces the direction you want to go.  

I think if you practice this tip for mindful living you’ll find the truth at the heart of the Emerson quote.  

Wishing you health and happiness,

Is a pre-listing inspection of your home a good move? It depends:



Part of my job as a real estate agent is educating and protecting my clients. Many of my clients get nervous about home inspections. They often ask: “Should I have a home inspection before I put my home on the market?” Here’s my take on the pre-listing inspection:

Knowing what you're in for when it comes to selling a house is always better than getting a nasty surprise down the line. In the event you find repairs that need to be made, they can be done in a reasonable time frame. 

The pre-listing inspection is also useful in situations down the line when you suspect the buyer's home inspection reflects wildly inflated estimates for repairs. 

Also keep in mind that if you fail to disclose a problem found in the inspection, you could be in big trouble down the line.

You also need to know the difference between maintenance repairs and home upgrades. Buyers have a reasonable expectation that the home has been properly maintained. Making necessary maintenance repairs doesn't mean the you can up the price on the listing. You can't cover the cost of your new roof by pumping up the sale price. You might be able to use it as an effective marketing point over other listings in the area, but it's not a fabulous kitchen renovation!

If you don’t want to make the repairs, understand that not making repairs can have a disproportionately negative impact on your sale price. For example, if you want to dump a $1,000 plumbing repair on prospective buyers, the buyers are not going to equate that to $1,000 off the asking price. Instead, they're going to think about the time, inconvenience, and the cost of the repair. A $1,000 repair might translate to a $3,000 hit to the asking price. Buyers will want to be well-paid to handle a seller's headache.

There’s a definite benefit to the pre-listing inspection, but it’s important to consider the pros and cons with your agent. 

I’d be glad to have a conversation with you about the specific concerns you may have about your home if you’re preparing to list it. Please contact me today:
