Imagine This ~**~~~**~***~~
humans like plants. Starting from seed. Developing and Blossoming. Rooting down into the soil, and deeper into the earth. Strong. Riding out the seasons and the storms. Recovering. Resilient.
Some humans remain in the same town, perhaps the same house, their entire lives.
Some humans uproot and transplant themselves into other gardens around the planet, for a diversified experience.
What do the nutrients of this community feel like? Do the nutrients support my survival? Am I thriving? Or just staying alive?
I also think of this in terms of humans and houses.
When we live in a neighborhood, we invest our energy into our home, community, place of work, and place of worship.
When we foster warmth and connection, we’re Rooting Down. Roots going deeper into the fabric of community. More Grounded. More stable. More supported.
When we move, we UpRoot ourselves from our community and become a transplant in another community, until, our roots take hold. Again, we Root Down. It takes time and energy to stabilize in the new community, but it happens.
I liken Buying a House to Rooting Down.
I liken Selling a House to UpRooting.
I liken Investing to being a Farmer who sprinkles seeds with the hopes of producing fruitful crops.

Hey Y’all. Did anyone get a letter in the mail from OpenDoor?
I did! So… I went down the rabbit hole. 🙂 . Here’s my review!
They claim to streamline and simplify the house selling process. I put my address in to see how much they would offer me.
For my house in East Nashville, they offered $313,000.
That is an undervalued price for the house based on the location and the zoning. I’m zoned RM20, which means I can put 5 units, 3 stories high on this property. That’s anywhere from 75-100k per unit pad x 5.
That’s as far as I went.
If you’re curious about selling, definitely explore opendoor.com, as it only took 15 minutes, but I would highly recommend speaking to local real estate experts. You might be leaving lots of money on the table in exchange for the convenience.
If you’re curious about the value of your home, or if you have a particularly unique situation, I LOVE helping people solve their real estate puzzles, and helping them maximize their profit potential. If you provide organic tea or fun snacks, I’ll give you a free 1 hour consultation 😀 I love food, and I love teeeeaaa!
Timeline wise, if you need to move within the next 90 days, it’s a great time to explore your options. That’ll give you enough time to be calmly strategic.
