Like everybody else on the planet, you and I only have 24 hours in a day to spend. Here’s how this ties into real estate.

What do you and I both have in common with Oprah Winfrey and Darren Hardy? 

We each have 24 hours in a day. The only difference is how they spend their 24 hours and we spend ours. 

I know what you may be thinking right now: This isn’t real estate related. Well, actually it is—allow me to explain. 

Whether you’re selling a home or upgrading for your first home purchase, you can typically afford a larger home the further you’re willing to drive from urban areas. Before you do so, there are a few things to consider.

“Most of my clients want what I want: more time with the people we love and work hard for.”

If you commute two hours a day, that adds up to 10 hours a week, 40 hours a month, and 360 hours a year. In total, that’s 15 days’ worth of driving—15 days that each has 24 hours in them. I don’t know about you, but most of my clients want what I want: more time with the people we love and work hard for. 

So before you buy or sell, calculate your new proposed drive time and decide if having twice the home for half the price is worth the precious moments with your friends, family, and loved ones that you’ll never get back. 

If you have any questions about this or any other real estate topic, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d love to help you.
