God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference
Bill Wilson, the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, made the serenity prayer popular as the “AA serenity prayer” to encourage people with alcohol addictions to ask God’s help in accepting what they are, while at the same time, granting them courage to change the things they can.
What does this have to do with real estate? As stated in this recent article entitled ” How the Serenity Prayer Applies To Selling a Home” written by the KCM Crew, Sellers have to realize that there are some things beyond their control involved when selling a Lake Charles home. Sellers cannot change the Economy or the Values of Recent Comparable Sold Homes.
As stated by the KCM Crew article “thousands of homes sold yesterday, thousands will sell today and thousands will sell each and every day from now until the end of the year. It is totally within your power to guarantee that your house will sell even in the current market.”
What sellers can change and have control over is the price, condition, appearance and price of their Lake Charles home for sale.
When Selling your Lake Charles Home, Remember the Serenity Prayer:
“Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.”
