Geometry is a very under rated mathematical style that is not used enough in the Real Estate industry. It can show “proof” that it’s make up and natural understanding can be the utmost variable when deciding between the given. Are you math enthusiasts following me here? snicker snicker
With the given example here you may be able to decide what is the best option when deciding where to move in reference to commute diffence and priorty between 3 locations…Home, Work, Weekend Home, and family.
Drive distance from work to home is EQUALLY important as the drive distance from home to your family, and not as important as it is from home to your weekend home. This scenario would be most accurately realized in an isosceles triangle where two of it’s sides are equal giving you angles of 45, 45, and 90 degrees.
Drive distance from work to home is more important than the drive distance from home to weekend home and home to family. This scenario would be most accurate realized in an right triangle where one of it’s sides is shortest, the next is a comfortable middle length between the shortest and longest, and then you have of course the longest…this would be illustrated when the triangle angles measure 30, 60, and 90 degrees.
If it is important to you that all driving distances be equal because you are having emotional struggles in determining priority in one drive over the other, you might settle for the equilateral triangle used by most Americans that can’t very well execute the ever important, executive decisions. In an equilateral triangle, all sides measure the same and all angles are 60 degrees.
Once you’ve drawn your triangle, list your three givens (work, weekend home, family) at the three corners, and the deepest middle space inside the triangle will be where you want to move in your next home.
This geometrical use in deciding your perfect home buying location has the power to drive America out of this recession and mortgage downward spiral all on it’s own.
Hope you have enjoyed this read as much as I did in writing it. (:
