A quote from this website —
A massive asteroid (4581 Asclepius) nearly hit the earth in 1989. This day is commemorated annually on March 23 as people across the nation celebrate National Near Miss Day.
On March 22-23, 1989, a mountain-sized asteroid came within 500,000 miles of colliding with the earth. “On the cosmic scale of things, that was a close call,” said Dr. Henry Holt. Geophysicists estimate that collision with Asclepius would release energy comparable to the explosion of a 600 megaton atomic bomb. On March 31, 1989, nine days after its closest approach to Earth, the asteroid was discovered.
A collision would have had catastrophic effects on our planet.
Despite the “near miss” of a massive asteroid, there are some “near misses” that you should be concerned about in the buying or selling of a home.
A frequent “near miss” involves choosing the wrong real estate firm and the wrong realtor that would definitely be catastrophic. All agents are not created equal, and you should be concerned about having an agent that works FOR you and not for your commission check.
There is a lot of work that goes into being a realtor, and even more work that goes into being a great one.
A “near miss” that some home buyers or sellers may not even see coming is that years of experience does not always equal a realtor working on your side. There is a saying that says, “A person can have X years of experience, or they can have 1 year of experience X number of times.”
