DAY 1

DAY 1-REFLECTIONS ON THE DAY BEFORE TODAY – THE SUNDAY

GOOD THING:CREA, CompeteREA, REal Estate

Firs time in past 8 weeks that I did not work a full day on Sunday.

I did some work in the morning and I did some work at night, but in the middle of the day I took off for few hours. We went in New York City and walked the campus of Colombia University, did a walk along the Hudson River in River Bank Park. After we had a bite in local creperie café. I love the energy of university campuses. Feels different and so energized.

BAD THING:

We returned home and I went in my office to do some work with the idea to put myself ahead of tomorrows’ reports deliveries.

I was appraising a typical ranch from 50s. Typical size, bedroom bath count. What was atypical about this ranch it was where this ranch was situated – on the border of two towns– Norwalk and New Canaan, being legally in Norwalk. So that immediate streets were in New Canaan, sleepy rich town with the homes values in high millions. Same typical ranches are 2-3 times higher in value in New Canaan than in Norwalk. I had to put extra research, analyses to deliver the value.

I worked about 90 minutes on my report, I have moved comps around, and I adjusted and re-adjusted over and over again. I forgot to mention that it was a purchase. Several times while working I had a thought: save all, go out to get washing detergent, but no I kept working.report appraisal, real esate, CREA

At the moment I thought- I am done, value is here, I heard a clicking sound, circuit breaker popped out and the computer shut down. I lost all work, its 8:30 pm. WCA software is acting up recently, and their “the latest and the greatest” updates do not deliver what is promised. THERE IS NO AUTOSAVED version of my report. In short, I had to re-enter all over again, all comps. I had to adjust again, move them around, and readjust again. I am still working on this report tonight, with a little bit more familiarity of where I am going with it now.
