    If ever there was a time to talk to your dad, it's now

    Hi,
    Is this correct? A sentence with combination of unreal conditional and real situation.

    If ever there was a time to talk to your dad, it's now.


    Thanks.

    If there was ever a place to build your dream home, it's here!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
