tech<p>You don&#39;t know what you don&#39;t know. And sometimes you think you know, until you find out you don&#39;t. And you <em>know</em> that&#39;s not good.</p> <p>We work with clients from all walks of life with all types of backgrounds and expertise. They know lots of stuff we don&#39;t know, and we would never try to do what they do. For example, we wouldn&#39;t walk into a classroom and begin teaching high school math, or start making trades like a portfolio manager, or perform surgery like a surgeon from MGH. We KNOW we don&#39;t know these things - and that&#39;s OK.</p> <p>Knowledge is power and it&#39;s important to have a baseline understanding of certain things -- like basic math skills, how to save your money, and when to apply a Band-aid with Neosporin. However there is a point when it&#39;s best to leave certain things to the experts (AP calculus, currency hedging, heart surgery).</p> <p>Same goes for real estate. It is worthwhile to have an understanding of the real estate market and what it takes to buy and sell a home. You should know things like<a href="https://www.inman.com/2015/07/06/18-simple-terms-that-scare-homebuyers/#.VaPCAvV9HlY.facebook">, your FICO score, closing costs and contingencies</a>. But the complexity of real estate transactions is increasing. Changing regulations and fluctuating markets have made real estate logistically challenging, and what you don&#39;t know can leave you powerless to the implications (legal, financial, emotional).</p> <p>We&#39;ve been buying and selling homes for clients in Arlington for more than 25 years. We would never claim to know everything, but we sure know a lot about negotiating, pricing, location, value, timing - you name it - when it comes to real estate.</p> <p>We know something you don&#39;t know. If you are thinking of buying or selling a home, the knowledge of The Home Advantage Team is your advantage in a competitive and ever-changing real estate market.</p> <p>&quot;<em>Everyone you will ever meet knows something you don&#39;t</em>,&quot; - Bill Nye (The Science Guy)</p> <p><a href="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5388/blog/misc/Post_Secret2.jpg"> <img alt="Post_Secret2" class="aligncenter size-medium wp-image-1997 featured" height="300" src="https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.usmre.com/5388/blog/misc/Post_Secret2-276x300.jpg" width="276"></a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Image via: <a href="https://www.dollarphotoclub.com/Search?k=secret&amp;filters%5Bcontent_type%3Aphoto%5D=1&amp;filters%5Bcontent_type%3Aillustration%5D=1&amp;filters%5Bcontent_type%3Avector%5D=1&amp;search=Search"> BillionPhotos.com, Dollar Photo Club</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
