Tonight, I showed a piece of commercial property for a fifth time, to the same couple. They had another investor couple with them. We toured the property, talked and looked around a little more.
As we wrapped up our showing, we talked about where we were from, what we had done in the past, and what we were doing now. The "new" couple had just moved to Marshfield, MO from Wyoming. The husband said, "We had to move where the jobs were."
I nodded and agreed.
In my day to day real estate activities I am often asked how the job market is here in Southwest Missouri. I give everyone the same, standard answer, which I believe whole heartily: If you want to work, there is a job here for you. Some people don't believe me. I get the look: Yeah right.
The gentleman from Wyoming is a prime example: he's been in the insurance business for over 30 years. He looked and he found a job, in Southwest Missouri.
