Rain Rain......

Real Estate Agent with Prestige Properties

Wow!  Some really powerful thunderstorms in our area of the last several days.  We definitely needed rain but what a show of nature's power.  Thankfully we did not see the flooding that some other areas have seen.

Nature is a lot like real estate.  It can be hot or cold.  There are definitely different seasons to selling, and you never know when all hell will break loose.  As I was thinking about the analogy, I also thought that we tune in to the weather everyday to prepare for it.  Shouldn't we be doing the same thing for real estate.  Each morning shouldn't' we be checking the current status of the market in our area and prepare for it.  I realize the real estate does not change quite as quickly as the weather can but it can be just as volatile and we need to be prepared.  Make checking the real estate weather a part of your everyday routine and don't get caught in a storm with no protection!

We've had the rainy weather in Kentucky as well. I hope the weather is changing in our favor, and it seems to be break the right way for real estate at the present time.  Let's hope it continues.

I never thought about the media aspect of it but you are exactly right Gary.  Even when they get it wrong everybody tunes in to see what's next. Unfortunate but true.
