The Long And Winding Road: Real Estate Through The Music Of The Beatles

Over the next week we are going to be getting our fill of The Beatles.  The reason?  February 9th will mark the 50th anniversary of their earth shattering appearance on The Ed Sullivan show.  Much will be made of their impact on popular music and on American culture.  Surely it is unlikely any entertainment personality will have the kind of impact that The Beatles had.  With that as my backdrop, I’d like to suggest another way to appreciate their music…

Penny Lane                                                                                                                               You’ve stumbled on a quaint little neighborhood and it gets you to thinking.

I Want To Hold Your Hand                                                                                                         The feeling you get when you walk into an open house and it hits you, “This home is for us.”

She Loves You                                                                                                                             The response you get when you agree with her that this is the right home for you.

You’re Going To Lose That Girl (or Guy)                                                                             Better figure out what to do next and in a hurry.

Tell Me Why                                                                                                                               What your parents say when you inform them you’ve found a house.

I Should Have Known Better                                                                                                     The feeling you have after hanging up with your parents (just kidding).

A Hard Days Night                                                                                                                   Pretty much sums up the evening after you realize you don’t know the first thing about buying a home.

Help!                                                                                                                                               And you say to yourself, “Now what?”

If I Needed Someone                                                                                                                     You start making calls and interviewing prospective agents.

Nowhere Man                                                                                                                               The agent won’t call, text or email you back… next!

A Little Help From Your Friends                                                                                             Your friend refers you to their amazing Realtor.

I Don’t Want To Spoil The Party                                                                                               Your Realtor informs you that there are multiple offers.

It Won’t Be Long                                                                                                                           You wrote the offer and your Realtor says “We’ll know something tonight.”

We Can Work It Out                                                                                                                   The seller counters your offer, but your agent assures you, it’s yours if you come up just a little more on your offer.

Don’t Let Me Down                                                                                                                   “Come on baby… make it happen!”

I’ve Got A Feeling                                                                                                                 Fingers are crossed, the stars are aligned and the you’re sure the real estate God is smiling on you.

Here Comes The Sun                                                                                                                 Yes!  You got it!

I Feel Fine                                                                                                                                       You realize, that you really can do this.

When I Get Home                                                                                                                          Can’t hardly wait to say it!

Taxman                                                                                                                                         Yeah that’s right, you’re a homeowner and now have an amazing tax write off.

A Day In The Life                                                                                                                       Your feet are up, the coffee is brewing and it just doesn’t get any better than this.

Fixing A Hole                                                                                                                                 Yes, a home does require some maintenance.

Little Child                                                                                                                                 You’re thinking, “Good thing we bought a 4 bedroom.”

She’s Leaving Home                                                                                                               Where did all those years go?

When I’m Sixty Four                                                                                                                You start thinking “Honey, maybe we should down size.”

Golden Slumbers                                                                                                                     You’re all packed up.  The moving truck is ready, you hug each other and say goodbye to the place you’ve called home for so many years.  It’s bittersweet, but you think, “You know, it really was a great home.”
