The Best Advice Does Not Mean Perfect Advice

The Best Advice Does Not Mean Perfect Advice

The angst caused by the coronavirus has most people on edge regarding both their health and financial situations. It’s at times like these when we want exact information about anything we’re doing – even the correct protocol for grocery shopping. That information brings knowledge, and this gives us a sense of relief and comfort.
If you’re thinking about buying or selling a home today, the same need for information is very real. But, because it’s such a big step in our lives, that desire for clear information is even greater in the homebuying or selling process. Given the current level of overall anxiety, we want that advice to be truly perfect. The challenge is, no one can give you “perfect” advice. Experts can, however, give you the best advice possible.
Let’s say you need an attorney, so you seek out an expert in the type of law required for your case. When you go to her office, she won’t immediately tell you how the case is going to end or how the judge or jury will rule. If she could, that would be perfect advice. What a good attorney can do, however, is discuss with you the most effective strategies you can take. She may recommend one or two approaches she believes will be best for your case.
She’ll then leave you to make the decision on which option you want to pursue. Once you decide, she can help you put a plan together based on the facts at hand. She’ll help you achieve the best possible resolution and make whatever modifications in the strategy are necessary to guarantee that outcome. That’s an example of the best advice possible.
The role of a real estate professional is just like the role of the lawyer. An agent can’t give you perfect advice because it’s impossible to know exactly what’s going to happen throughout the transaction – especially in this market.
An agent can, however, give you the best advice possible based on the information and situation at hand, guiding you through the process to help you make the necessary adjustments and best decisions along the way. An agent will get you the best offer available. That’s exactly what you want and deserve.

If you’re thinking of buying or selling, contact Diane Taylor your local Sacramento real estate professional to make sure you get the best advice possible.

Is financial planning important? Aretha Franklin $80 million troubles!

It is not exciting to think about, but we all have an end date.  And we should all ask ourselves, if I expired today, are my affairs in order?  I ask myself this question and I realize I defiantly have work to do.  In 2018 Aretha Franklin died.  She left behind $80 million. (Read the details) It is 2020 and her family and the courts are still working to settle her estate.   With so much money at stake, you can image the confusion.  Initially it was thought that she died without a will.  But it turns out that she left behind 3 hand written wills.  So now her family are the probate court are in battle that might take years to settle.  With proper estate planning this could have been prevented. 
Sometimes we procrastinate, but  the bottom line is that we all have an expiration date.  And preparing for the unexpected should be a part of our financial planning.

Click this link when you finish reading.  How much equity do you have in your home?  My goal is to help 25 seniors buy or sell a home this year. If you are 55 plus you might find that your life is beginning to under go a transition.  Possibly you are thinking about retirement and how that is going to impact your life and your finances.  Maybe you are grandparents and you are now raising grandchildren.  Due to increased years possibly your parents are starting to need your attention or increased assistance.  These issues or challenges will require your attention now or in the near future.  It is possible that you might have to adjust your live arrangement or lifestyle.


Today’s statistics are showing that many homeowners are remain in their homes longer.  Because they are not moving as frequently, they are steadily increasing the equity in their homes.  This is a good thing, because the  available equity can help the homeowner make the necessary adjustments to change their life.   
 I can help you evaluate the equity accumulated in your home. Would you like to know your numbers, your bottom line?  Call, Text or email for a free, personal one on one consultation. Additional Information.
