Twenty years of trout fishing can teach you a lot about selling real estate. That may sound odd, but you learn that fish are always hungry and homes are always selling. And there’s a big difference between fishing and catching fish and listing your house and selling your house. Here are some field notes from the front lines of trout fishing and selling real estate in Santa Fe.

Regardless of whether you’re fishing or selling, you must first ask yourself if you are really serious. For sellers, do you want to sell your home or are you okay letting it sit on the market? If your home is just sitting on the market and not getting any showings, it’s not that there are no buyers, you are simply not in the market where the buyers are. Like fishing, you can go crazy trying things you saw on a TV show, reading how-to-do-it books or using the latest technology, but in order to succeed you must know the tools of the trade and understand the fundamental equation.
