Four Components of Change:
The Four Components of Change refer to the stages that neighborhoods or areas go through over time. It's like the life cycle of a butterfly: first, it's a caterpillar (growth), then it forms a chrysalis (equilibrium), turns into a butterfly (decline), and lays eggs to start the cycle again (revitalization).
Imagine a neighborhood where new houses and stores are being built (growth). Over time, the neighborhood becomes stable, and not much new development happens (equilibrium). Eventually, some buildings become old and empty, and the area becomes less popular (decline). Then, new people come in and start fixing things up, bringing the neighborhood back to life (revitalization).

In the world of real estate, there's a cycle to know,
It's the Four Components of Change, as life comes and goes.
Growth, equilibrium, decline, and revitalization,
These stages make up the cycle, across the nation.
When a neighborhood is young, growth is what you see,
New homes and shops emerge, bustling like a bee.
Then equilibrium comes, where things are steady and plain,
No major changes happening, it's like a quiet lane.
But alas, decline appears, with age and wear to show,
Empty buildings and worn-out streets, it's the cycle's low.
Fear not, for revitalization brings a new light,
Fixing up the old and tired, making the neighborhood bright.
So remember, dear learner, this cycle of life,
In real estate, it's important, to understand the strife.
