Appreciate what you have!

By December 17, 2020 Market Update

What a year it’s been!

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s taught us to appreciate what we have and not to take anything for granted. That is why we would like to share with you this story that reminds us to appreciate what we have.

One day . . . a wealthy family man took his son on a trip to the country, so he could have his son see how poor country people live.

They stayed one day and one night in the home of a very humble farmer.   At the end of the trip, and when they were back home, the father asked his son, “What did you think of the trip?”

The son replied, “Very nice dad.”

Then the father asked his son, “Did you notice how poor they were?”

The son replied, “Yes.”

The father continued asking, “What did you learn?”

The son responded, “I learned that we have one dog in our house, and they have four.

Also, we have a fountain in our garden, but they have a stream that has no end.

And we have imported lamps in our garden . . . where they have the stars!

And our garden goes to the edge of our property.   But they have the entire horizon as their back yard!”

At the end of the son’s reply the father was speechless.

His son then said, “Thank you dad for showing me how poor we really are.”

Isn’t it true that all depends on the lens you use to see life?

One can ask himself what would happen if we give thanks for what we have instead of always asking for more.

Learn to appreciate what you have. Wealth is all in one’s point of view.

For anyone wanting to buy, sell or lease, Hudson Bond will remain open EVERY DAY during the Festive Season, except for the public holidays.

Since coming out of lockdown we have been extremely busy, achieving exceptional results for our clients, often with multiple buyers offering on the same property. Hence, we have many buyers who have registered their details with us and are on our waiting list, who desperately want to buy.

If you are thinking of selling sometime in the new year, consider starting that conversation with us now, while the market is hot rather than waiting for later in the year. You can call us on 9840 7700.

On behalf of the Hudson Bond team we would like to wish you a very Happy and Safe Festive Season and a Wonderful New Year!
