Millions of people adjust the time on their clock now that daylight savings is ending…But what’s weird is that it’s not done everywhere; also, the actual date of when the time change occurs is different in some areas of the world. It isn’t universal.

Adjusting to the time change is confusing enough for people on a local level. So, forget about trying to make sense of it nationally, or globally.

Why does it exist? Is it still useful? Why doesn’t it get observed everywhere? These are all questions people may ask, but for now, on a local level, the only thing that matters is that you have to adjust the your clock in order to be in sync with everything and everyone around you.

It’s similar in real estate…The overall process of buying or selling a home is pretty similar from one area to another.

But there are regional differences in how the process works, the rules, regulations, and laws. And all of these things change quite often.

This is usually a bigger issue when someone is moving from one area to another. A typical statement a Realtor may hear is, “That’s not how it is done where I come from…” And that might be true. And the way it is done in another area may even be better, or make more sense. But it doesn’t matter. Because the only thing that matters is how things are done wherever you happen to be buying or selling.

Which is why hiring a local Realtor, like myself, who is on top of the local process, rules, regulations, and laws is so critical. I also have many connections and colleagues Nationally and Internationally, so don’t leave the guess work up to someone you don’t know, call me and I can refer you to a Realtor that knows the local market and rules, regulations and laws in the area you are interested in buying or selling in…since it’s a referral from me, they will be sure to take good care of you!
