Metaphors Of Life
Real Estate and Sports
The QB launches the ball.... similar to having an offer ratified
your deal accepted, you go 'into contract'.
It's in the air, it's anyone's game.
The ball is caught... contingencies removed.
The receiver is running towards the finish line - Touch Down!
From Active (ratified) to Pending(contingencies removed)
to Sold (touchdown)!
I really do not follow football giving it my full attention, but for years I could not stop drawing metaphors between sports and life. I was, however, a cheerleader and a Pom Pom girl so I had some knowledge, I also followed our son who played football and lacrosse for over 15 years. Not to mention it seems, as if, football is ALWAYS on TV.
Selling real estate is similar to a football game or pretty much any sports event, each has a beginning, a middle and an end. Just one of the reasons why I love real estate; the teamwork, the collaboration and the close. The finality and fulfillment of one ending allows you to start again anew.
Tune in tomorrow. Another game, another deal.
Photo Top: For awhile our son Chase always wore cleats with a yellow reflector, pictured above. I loved it as I could always follow his shoes and find him.
