The power of voting can be a lot greater than you think, especially when you do it with your feet. In this episode, we discuss the latest trend sweeping the nation: the Great Reshuffling - and why you might consider hopping aboard.
good afternoon good afternoon folks in brisket arizona that’s right this is diane and randall grove and i’m the randall he’s the randall we are here in the lovely town of prescott arizona loving life loving our little business here and loving to reach uh to you guys and chat with you about uh different topics different topics so today we’re going to talk about a new phenomenon that’s sweeping the country called voting with your feet yes it’s more than one way to vote yeah if you can’t get the result that you want you can always vote with your feet so that was a quote that actually i think it was lenin uh people asked you know did the people uh want the czar or the did the people want to end the war this is world war one you know when did the people vote uh when did the soldiers vote that they should end the war and he said they voted with their feet meaning that they had all retreated from the front and you know right just gave up the fight and uh that’s a term that’s kind of bandied about quite a bit the idea of voting with you voting with your fee and we see it all the time as agents here uh we represent a lot of buyers uh they’re coming from california washington oregon even some new jersey folks yeah and um they are voting with their feet uh they are not happy with things that are occurring in their home states and they are retired and they’re like you know what we have a luxury now and the ability to vote with our feet uh we don’t have to put up with it anymore we don’t uh and we want to move on yeah and so a lot of them are coming here to prescott yeah a lot of them are a lot of them are it’s you know it’s the last resort uh you know it’s in communist countries like cuba and east germany you know they’ll build a wall to keep people from voting with their feet because they know their people are unhappy and uh so far there’s no place in the united states that i know of that forces you to stay where you are although california tried they were trying to tax people who are leaving you know and i can’t imagine that that’s gonna stick but uh but at this point in time you can still vote with your feet and the thing about it about voting with your fee is you get instant results if you elect your candidate it’s gonna take a while before your candidates able to bring you the changes that you want but when you vote for your feet you go to some place where things are happening the way that you want them to it’s right instantaneously you get immediate satisfaction you get immediate results um depending on where you go of course yeah um and so we get a lot of people who are like i’m moving on i can’t change what’s occurring in my state i sure have tried i’ve tried to hang in there as long as i can and hoping that there might be a change and now that they’re retired they have the freedom and the wherewithal they’re not tied to a job or career or kids in school yeah and so we are seeing it more and more that people are voting with their feet and they’re going where they feel uh with like-minded people yeah and um so it’s been an interesting thing to watch uh unfold and develop yeah and so we say it a lot a lot uh and it’s a phenomenon that’s happening really all over the country uh there’s a lot of new flux uh people call it the the the great reselection the great reset i forget that i don’t know yeah but it’s like the covet thing and it’s like everyone is sort of rethinking what they want to do with their lives where they want to spend their lives covered has changed a lot of things yeah it’s changed the path for a lot of people reshuffling i’m sorry the great reshuffling i knew it would come to you yes it always does but it is interesting to see a lot of people um have the effects of cobit and they realize hey you know i was gonna retire in five years um but now i actually can live and work wherever i want yeah because people started working remotely yes so it’s enabled them to move up their plans to move to a different state yeah hopefully prescott and it’s changed their life plan and that’s all because of covet they were like we have to work at home we’re going to figure this out and once it was figured out people realized well hell i can keep doing this nothing nothing to stop why do i need to stay here i can move where i want to move ahead of retirement i don’t have to wait until i retire right which is kind of cool yeah and for those who are kind of on the other side of the the the work period you know their work careers and looking at retirement you know you reach a certain age you realize that the situation is not going to be fixed on your watch you’re just not going to live that long you know you don’t have 40 years ago that’s great yeah i mean when you’re in your 20s it’s easier to be optimistic you want to be part of the solution you want to affect change you make the world a better place you get to be an old man it’s like ah you know i just i’m tired of fighting yeah all i’m looking for is peace i want peace happiness peace and i want my money to last until i die [Laughter] that’s all you’re looking for when you retire like hey i’m done i just want to chill out

If you’re driving in to Prescott from I-10, your GPS will likely take you through some annoying switchbacks that run between Yarnell and Prescott. Unless you’re into motion sickness, you might want to bypass them. Here’s how to do that.
It’s no secret that a mass exodus is underway in California, as more and more retirees are taking their money and leaving a state they feel has turned its back on them. This video explores why they are leaving and why more and more of them are turning to Prescott as their refuge.
More and more Californians are cashing in on the arbitrage opportunity that awaits them in Prescott. The Pickle Lady explains how the “California Arbitrage” can turbo charge your retirement. Your financial planner will be glad you watched this video.
cheers cheers to you hello hello hello hey peeps i’m wearing my green and to commemorate saint patty’s day i have some green on my coffee mug i think that’s the only green i am the look of the irish a little in advance of uh st patrick’s day today so i i didn’t prepare i didn’t know you were gonna do the whole luck of the irish thing oh i’m just letting us know it’s you know march 17th it’s coming up it’s we’re going to have a good time and uh so we want to commemorate that official day so i put on my green yeah to match my green eyes there you go look at the irish she’s a prescott pickled lady diane brown my name is randall bro all disclosure is now done all disclosures are done i also want to just drinking coffee i also want to disclose that um i’m not as irish as i thought yeah um yeah i did that 23andme and uh i’m not so ironic yeah i’m not as irish my dad was very much a hundred percent irish yeah and i’m popping up what i don’t know something like twenty percent maybe there’s something else going on yeah postal worker or something but anyway a lot more spanish than i thought yeah anyway that’s cool that’s an aside in the business that’s an aside one of those decides it’s an aside but it’s on the side we did want to commemorate saint patrick’s day to all of our folks out there absolutely and uh we wanted to talk about california arbitrage yes california arbitrage a lot of people coming in from california and uh looking to retire and planning their retirement uh often what they miss is the opportunity for the california arbitrage which you can turbo charge your retirement correct so for a lot of people maybe you’re not thinking about this but you might be sitting on a million and a half or even a million nine hundred thousand dollar home in california maybe it was built in the 50s i don’t know i mean i don’t know your whole story where it’s located or your square footage or this that and the other but from our experience what we’re hearing from a lot of people coming in from california oh my gosh i can get a mansion here for like 600 000 and you don’t know where i’m coming from i’m like i don’t but they’re like i live in a 1200 square foot house uh built in the 50s and 60s it all needs to be updated i didn’t know i could live like a king and or a queen here oh yeah absolutely but the perk is not only can you live like a king or queen and get the latest and greatest and a beautiful home and the latest updates and this and that you’ll get beautiful views you’ll get a beautiful lifestyle but you sell that house over there in california for a million and a half you come here you can get a house in the fives maybe maybe even in the fours depending on what you’re looking for what your needs are and guess what mr brown what i just banked a million dollars you just not a million because you’re well you can bank most of that because you are buying a house yeah but still what a huge nest egg you could get from that your financial planner will thank you oh yeah they’ll be like wow this is awesome so if you’re looking at you’re looking at i did a video i’ll do a link on this so you can watch the video but you know if you are sitting on two million dollars you’re living in california um you know unless you’re like ready to pass on there’s a really good chance you know you’re gonna run out of money and uh if you if you come here not only is the cost of living a lot lower but you’ll be able to get a comparable home we estimate it’s about 40 about 40 of what your home is worth in california and depending on the area you know uh about 40 will will buy you a comparable home with that 60 percent that would go to your retirement yeah huge people yeah you try to save that while you’re living in california not gonna take and when you say comparable really it’s not even compromised not even conflict yeah i mean because what we’re hearing from our clients you know is much smaller square footage much older homes um tons of traffic tons of you know the neighborhood’s kind of going down that’s not the case here yeah you you’re gonna it’ll be safe not a lot of traffic correct bigger square footage um it’s almost like you’re you know moving into almost a brand new home yeah with the latest and greatest absolutely so we call that the california arbitrage california arbitrage arbitrage i like to say it like that oh it’s got to see it yeah so anyway something to keep in mind if you’re kind of on the fence and you’re like you know but i love my house it’s appreciated so much you’re sitting on that appreciation you’re not really able to access that appreciation it’s great it’s great to have but just imagine if you sold that and what you could do with that appreciation hell you could buy a house here live in the life of luxury and then travel the world i mean it opens a lot of women it does it is in your retirement it does as of now yes you know what we’re hearing is that in some areas of california the appreciation has slowed down uh appreciation here is robust so if the appreciation there is slowing down and the appreciation here is keeping moving forward then the arbitrage begins to lose steam so so keep that in mind don’t wait too long because you might miss the boat in california and you might miss the boat here in prescott yeah so anyway just something we’d like to talk about because we find it fascinating we find it interesting we wish we kind of were in that position yeah yeah but it didn’t happen we were coming from a different location so we couldn’t uh get that gigantic uh yeah but uh for some of you who can maybe you should think about that and take advantage of it california california arbitrage all right but anyway where can they find you below you can find me at the
