Here is my latest ride. It might look familiar to you because I’m standing beside a similar car in the picture on my blog, but they only look alike. This one has a different engine, transmission and suspension.
My youngest son found it. It was going to be a project both my boys could work on and then they sell for a little profit. That plan changed when I drove this broken down 17-year-old car home from western Tennessee last fall. I knew I wanted to keep it and I knew that I wanted to rescue it from becoming a parts car. So I bought it from my boys.
I really liked the lighter blue one I use to have, but I LOVE this one.
Because the way it feels while driving it.
When people ask me why I like it so much, I don’t quote the weight of the car, I say it is very agile. I don’t mention the steering ratio, I say the steering feels lightening quick. I don’t tell people about the high flow throttle body and cold air intake, I say the engine sound is intoxicating.
I try to do the same thing when I list a house.
A home is much more than some cold list of features.
When I describe a house, I want to convey the vibe of the place. I want people to get a feeling about what the house is like as they read my description and see my pictures.
How do I know buyers think like I do about my car? Because I have never heard anybody describe a house they love by quoting the square footage, bathroom count or other features. They always tell me how all those things make them feel.
Oh, and like a lot of real estate pictures, my car looks better online that it does in person.
