While so much speculation is going on about the market conditions around the US, who is reporting the good stuff? I have clients and strangers constantly asking me how things are going because they heard the Real Estate market is so bad.
I don't know about you but I am still working, I still have people calling and I still have properties that are moving. While they may sit a little longer than they did last summer or year at this time, there are still people out there that need to buy and sell homes. Are you giving up? Are you getting discouraged? Are you getting bored? Well, if you answered yes to any of those questions, you have just gotten lazy to be blunt. You've got to be innovative in this market. Fill your time, at least a little a day, on working on new skills to help in your business. Or better yet, work on getting new leads. Have you updated your website in while? Have you called anyone to ask if they know anyone who needs real estate assistance? Make sure you are out there. Do you have cards? Take a day and distribute your cards anywhere you can. Go to an apartment complex and hang marketing materials or knock on doors. Those people will be moving up soon.
For the client: Don't get disgruntled. You've got to be on your game in todays market. Come up with innovative ideas that will get people looking at your home. You can't just settle on that old standby of good paint and clean house. You've got to be better than the neighbor down the street who has their home listed at the lowest price. It's not just about a good deal anymore, you've got to move your home. Ask your Realtor for help because they are a wealth of knowledge and you are paying them to be so!
For Everyone: Just hang in there. It's time we turn the mental spirit around about the market. Put out some positive thoughts and look at the good that is happening. People need homes and we are here to help. Make sure you call your local Realtor for all of your Real Estate Needs.
