Life Lessons from the Car Wash
Normally I wash my car myself or get the kids to do it. After all, why should I waste my money when I can wash it perfectly well myself?
It's the same thing with home repairs. Why should I get a plumber, electrician or a handyman when I can do basic maintenance and repairs myself?
However, my car had some body work and repainting done, so I wanted it washed and waxed professionally.
Well, here’s what I discovered at the car wash:
They do a much thorough cleaning than I can
They can do it much quicker than I can
I don’t actually enjoy washing the car
It saved time me as I was able to go to the supermarket while they cleaned it
It even saved me money as I got free parking at the supermarket (time is money too)
It’s the same with the house repairs - professionals save me time, money - they can buy materials at a cheaper rate than I can - and my wife doesn’t have to nag me for two months till I eventually do it.
It’s also the same when buying a home. You can spend a couple of months researching locations, availability, prices and making appointments, or a broker can do all this for you.
A good broker can even save you a lot of money. Last month, a client wanted to buy an apartment from a contractor in Neve Shamir. We knew how much someone had paid the previous week for a similar apartment, and we had a good relationship with the developer. Therefore, we were able to negotiate a 40,000 NIS discount. That was more than our fee.
I think I’ll take my car to the car wash more often.
