baseballAre You Ready To Step Into The Batter's Box?

It's that time of year again!  Pitchers and catchers are officially reporting to spring training camps and before we know it the first Major League Baseball games of spring will be here!  The Cincinnati Reds will be trying to defend their Central title and enjoying spring down in Goodyear, AZ!

These guys are the best in the world at what they do... (mostly) finely tuned athletes that "see the ball, hit the ball", something that the scientists might tell you is impossible when you break down the human reaction times and how quickly the ball moves from the pitcher's mound to home plate.

But the key to a batter's success is experience and anticipation.  They know the tendencies of a pitcher, what type of pitch is most likely from their competitor, where it will be located, and then the training to react to the pitch.  They can anticipate, start their swing early or later depending on what they think is happening, and that tiniest of adjustment is the difference between hearing the ball pop into the catcher's mitt for a strike or a nice trot around the basepaths as the ball sails over the fence!

Well a good REALTOR® is much like that baseball hitter, except we NEVER have an offseason!  We step into the batter's box EVERY day.  We're continually watching the market, learning new skills, seeing what the competition is doing and making those minute adjustments that are the difference between that strike out and the home run that gets your home SOLD!

And face it, you don't want an agent that strikes out!  You'll be sending that agent back to the bench and bringing in a pinch hitter in no time! 

Our work starts LONG before the first pitch, so if you're thinking about selling your Warren County home this year, give us a call!  We can review our major league plans for getting your home SOLD! 

Batter up!

Baseball and real estate have even more in common:  hits and misses, screwballs (buyers, sellers, agents,...), being thrown curveballs when you don't expect them, fouls (as in smells), errors (and ommissions), teamwork, veterans, rookies, fans, agents (who negotiate the big contracts), grounds crew (all the support staff...), scouting reports (MLS), etc......

Go Rockies; glad spring is here.  I did not know the Reds were in Arizona - did it occur recently?

Mel, I think there's about a month's worth of baseball blogs in your comment alone :)  The Reds just moved down last year to Goodyear, AZ after being in Florida for decades.

Joan, We're busy trying to put a new construction contract together!  Do that successfully, and we get the listing that they need to sell to move into the new...and their old home will fly off the shelf! :)

Love the baseball analogy!  And with spring training underway, I am hoping we are at the tail end of winter!

BLiz-I admit even though I know a lot of baseball players name,I can't watch the game because I don't understand it. But I really like how you tied in baseball with Real Estate. Very clever if I might add.

It's 68 degrees and the sun is shining here in Wrightsville Beach.  Perfect spring training weather.  And then a post mentioning baseball from 2 of my favorite bloggers.  Not sure the day could get much better!

Great analogy, Bill.  However, I hope my stats don't go the way of the Dodgers this year.  Ouch!

Christine, Just like that Pux. Phil character, it's a good sign the end is near :)

Lanre, I love to use a good analogy, and most things can be tied back to real estate somehow if you examine it long enough :)

CA, I would agree, you've got near perfect there!

Jane, Maybe they'll be better this year? :)

Love the game!  I still remember going to the world series in 87!  My son plays now and he practices much more than the required team practices.  If you want to be good at whatever you do work at it!

Lanre, We've had great support from our subscribers helping us get featured!  We try to pay it back by hitting suggest every day, we're up to 354 called shots so far and no plans to stop now.  Frankly, a day with NO called shots is a bit of a bummer!  One word of caution, to get one of our suggests, you probably have to be out before noon E.S.T.!  Our five rarely last past that time of day.  With 100+ that we subscribe to, we usually don't have to look long to find five Feature worthy posts :)
