Have you ever failed to ask a question for fear of sounding dumb? Or, maybe you were supposed to be the “expert” so you didn’t want others to think less of you. Perhaps you have bad memories of being called on in school when didn’t know the answer to the question. Or maybe you were taught that it was rude to ask questions. Well, you only get answers to questions that you ask, so it’s a good idea to learn how to ask great questions.
First, ask yourself the right questions: “Who” questions that identify the right relationships. “What” questions that spark your imagination. “Where” questions to help you formulate a vision. “When” questions to help you set goals. “Why” questions to determine your motivation. And, “How” questions that lead to solutions.
The next step is learning to ask great questions of others. So many doors can be opened by asking the right question to the right person at the right time. It’s also just a great way to make a new friend or business contact. Someone once said, “the future belongs to the curious,” so ask questions whenever you get the chance.

Silver-lining or salt in the wound? In this crazy real estate market a person who loses their house to foreclosure might end up with a profit after the house sells at auction. Nowadays, it’s not uncommon for a house at auction to sell for over what is owed to the bank. The bank can’t keep the profit, so it goes to the former owner. The craziest part about all this is that people are reluctant to collect their profit. Counties are having to hound people to come claim their money!
Luxury home builders are betting that millennials will keep the real estate market growing. They are entering that time in life when they are ready to “adult” and buy a house. Will rising interest rates deter this primal instinct? Probably not too much. If they can afford the payment, the interest rate is a side note. Even high-end builders foresee lots of buyers in the coming years.
See you soon,
