Sometimes you forget something and it costs…

Buying and selling real estate involves lots of details.   If you are not a detail oriented person, hopefully your real estate agent is one!

I am not going to list all the processes involved in a real estate transaction but suffice it to say there are many!

What brings this to mind this morning?

There is this house in my neighborhood.  I don’t know the owner as he just recently purchased this house.  He had mentioned he was going to get the landscaping in shape for the summer.  Sure there are some weeds but there is a good base of St. Augustine grass.

Then I see where he brings in a huge tiller (big tractor!) to rip up most of the grass.  I see sprinkler heads and PVC piping in the yard as well.  I wonder if this is one of those details he forgot?  Not sure but he did have an irrigation company over the next day!

Details...it is all about the details!

I guess he didn't think of everything.  I hope his own efforts didn't cost him too much before he brought in a pro.

Sounds like he didn't know he just needs a scraper to shave off the grass layer instead of tilling the lawn.  Putting in new sprinkler lines will be expensive.

Kinda funny.  I hope he shut off the water to the lawn first.  And what a waste of good lawn.

John - Checklists. I used them once. Need to get back to them. Thanks.

Jim - Yes they do. Amazingly he started jogging a few times a week thereafter as well!

Virginia - He did. It was off already. I do not think he realized he was on reclaimed water for his sprinkler as he obviously never turned it on.

How right you are Gary, details!  And as in your example details make or break a real estate transaction as well.  Love the great example!
