Another Family Gathering; Another RE Discussion – “A few words into mentioning that she plans to sell her home, she was interrupted with “Don’t do it… you can never buy one back. Prices will keep going up and you’ll be priced out…”

“Another family gathering, another discussion that led to RE:
A family member was given an opportunity to work on the island but she knows she’ll miss the family and the GVR so she suggests that she will do the stint for a couple years then return home.
A few words into mentioning that she plans to sell her home, she was interrupted with “Don’t do it… you can never buy one back. Prices will keep going up and you’ll be priced out…” Another agreed. Then a 3rd agreed. (Of course they go on mentioning the Asian invasion and low interest rates, and blah blah blah) I wanted to say something but decided to keep my mouth shut. Why bother? These people believe the world is flat and I could bring whatever data I wanted to and there’s no way of convincing them otherwise.
I will chat with the family member in private at a later time.”

  1. I’ve been hearing that scare tactic for over twenty years. That’s all it is, a scare tactic. People need to be less driven by fear. EVERYONE makes bad decisions when they make them from a place of fear.

  2. Have you guys seen this US ad from a few years back?

    My guess it that it could run in Van today and nobody would disagree. Which is a “sell” signal if there ever was one.
