Why “if” Is Like a Four Letter Word in Real Estate in London Ontario

 Why do we, if ourselves, all the time? If I would have done that or if I had said that, and; on and on it goes.

If, a very dangerous word in real estate

This week alone, I heard the following.

  •  Do you see that house on the corner? If I would have bought it when I first saw it, it just sold again for $86,000 more!


  • If only I had bought three months ago?


  • If only I had put up my house for sale instead of 2 months ago.


  • If I would have seen that last week, I could have bought it, now it is sold, I loved it.


  • That was a reasonable price if I had only been ready.


  • If I could only get my wife, husband, parents, children, guru, mentor, lover, minister, cat,  to agree with me, I would have bought it!


 I if myself as well if I stand in that checkout line, will it be quicker than the other 3? If I don’t work out this morning, what are the consequences? If I do this, if I do that?

  I read that iffing is an average human (emotion) (reaction) (call for help) (uncertainty) or all of those.

 I do not have the answer, but I vow not to use the word if today!

 If I remember!


If You Have a sec, check these homes out!


Note: If you have more ifs you would like to add, let me know if you can!

"Not All Realtors Are The Same"! This website and content are for you and are designed and constantly upgraded with the latest real estate trends, how-tos, and what is for sale on MLS. Our primary focus is guiding home buyers and sellers to make good decisions. We believe selling real estate is a process, not an event or knee-jerk reaction; we sleep well at night and ensure our clients do as well! We are not for everybody, nor can we please everybody, nor do we tell people what they want to hear; I know that may be old-fashioned and boring, but we are dealing with hundreds of thousands of your hard-earned money. Would you rather be happy, excited and bored or unhappy, excited and make a poor choice? About Ty I am a Broker with Sutton Group Preferred Realty Inc., Brokerage and the team leader for The Envelope Real Estate Group, that's enough about me! You see, this is about you, you do not want to hear blah blah stuff about awards, designations, or that we walk older adults across the street (I used to help old ladies cross the street, but as I got older I did not want my wife to think I was flirting) the reincarnation of Mother Teresa, walk on water or anything else to impress you. We let the numbers speak for themselves; success leaves clues!
