  • your family relationships;
  • the nature, substance and volume of your work;
  • the activities you have the time, space and money to engage in during your downtime; and
  • nearly every other area of your life.

So, if you find yourself facing decisions about your home, no matter how grim or stressful they may seem, I want to encourage you to see any moves you make as a window of opportunity to re-evaluate other things that might not be working optimally in your life, or to further other dreams you've put on the back burner.

I know:

  • homeowners in good shape who have taken their ability to refinance at low interest rates as an opportunity to rent their homes out and move to a new city;
  • folks facing foreclosure who are turning what seems like a tragedy into an opportunity to rent for a while, get out of debt, re-examine how their family lives and take an entirely new approach to their finances, and
  • buyers who are viewing their next home as the likely site for families, hobbies and business ventures that do not yet exist.

What real estate rethinks do you think are due?
