3 Reasons to Make 2015 Real Estate Goals Today—By Nancy Puder

Nancy PuderDo you confuse goals with typical New Year’s resolutions?  Resolutions are born out of fleeting emotions, whims or a general dissatisfaction of where we are in life.  People poke fun at resolutions because they are rarely kept.  The following year, the extra 20 pounds are still there and it seems like there is more debt than ever and so on..
A goal, on the other hand, is accompanied by serious thought as to why you want to accomplish that goal and then it always works best if you take the time to formulate a plan on how to get there.  It’s really not hard.  In fact, the hardest thing about it is picking up the pen.  If this is not you, perhaps you could share this with a friend!

Here are 3 great reasons to make 2015 Estate Goals today.
Avoid Procrastination
Are you a procrastinator?  Many of us don’t like to admit it and some even brag about it.  It’s hard to believe, but before you know it, we will be halfway through this year and well on our way to 2016. If you have been thinking about selling a property or purchasing one in 2015, take the first step by making the goal and write out your plan.  This is as simple as making a short list starting with what you need to do first.  Put that first step on your calendar and be sure you follow through.
Get in the Game
Are you always lamenting about and living in the past?  It’s time to accept the current state of the market and get in the game.  I hear people moaning about how much they could have sold their home for several years ago and just will not let that number go.  What they often don’t realize is that while they are focusing on the past, the present is here and ripe with new opportunities.  Others are holding onto the hope that prices will decline and they want to wait for a better deal to come along. The truth is that this is a great time to buy or sell.  Remember if you don’t play, you can’t win.
Enjoy the Benefits
Aside from the wonderful feeling of making a goal and accomplishing it, owning your own home allows you to keep more of your hard earned money at the end of the year instead of giving it over to Uncle Sam. If you have needed to downsize or move up for awhile now, imagine how great it will be to have finally taken the steps to do that.  Will the family be happier and will you be in a better financial place once you have taken the necessary steps?
