If you have a question and search the internet, what happens? Do you struggle to find enough information? Probably not! It’s usually just the opposite! You’re inundated with too much information.
So, what should you do if you want specific answers and not an avalanche of data?
Take real estate as an example.
Say you want to know the state of the housing market. If you searched that topic on Google, you’d be mired in news reports, statistics, and opinions. You’d be overwhelmed when all you wanted to do was figure out if this is a good time to sell your home!
A much better approach is to start by understanding what specific information you need to make the best decision. If you’re thinking of selling your home, you’ll want to know a few simple things:
• What is the local (neighbourhood) real estate scene like right now?
• What will your home likely sell for if it were listed today?
• Will you qualify to buy the kind of new home you want in a neighbourhood you desire?
Drilling down to those essential questions would give you the information you need. Get those answers, and you’ll gain clarity.
