Longevity: Capturing and Working a Unique Market Niche -Stepping Up to Your Niche, Part II

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Asheville 1031 Real Estate Investments 209970

Have you ever wondered what the secret of longevity in the practice of real estate IS?

I have. I have spent many long hours pondering how to make my career prosper (and me , too) and have come to the conclusion that  when you step up to the task to follow your passion in your practice of real estate, you energize your career as I mentioned in Part I. 

I am passionate about healthy homes in sustainable communities. I have been following that passion and have found that there are uncommon advantages in capturing and working a unique  market niche.

Looking at various market niches... the Over 55...the Second/Vacation...the Hospitality...Horsey and Equestrian...Land...all appear to have something in common. It may be  a certain "zest" that I mentioned.

For me, and all of our Brokers at our Firm here in Asheville, that "ingredient"  is the very attractive concept of stewardship we like to underscore in the SUSTAINABLE real estate market.  Seems that the idea of stewardship is more and more popular these days.. There are thousands of eco-related outreach organizations.Here are just a few eco-friendly sites directly related to the practice of real estate...

      U.S. Green Building Council

Environmental Building News

EPA Green Building

 Of course my all-time favorite, being that it is right here in Asheville, is the Green Building Council.  If you want to see some remarkable work, visit the above site! AND notice how many REALTORS® are members of the Green Building Council.

Part III is brewing and I will post it soon.

You have given some great resources for this "niche." Do you find there are times when you are combining niches? Such as Aging in Place features combined with healthy homes?

You asked..." Do you find there are times when you are combining niches?Such as Aging in Place features combined with healthy homes?.." NOW THAT is an amazing topic!!! The answer is YES...and I would love to see a post or 50 on the subject...to include perhaps..walkable communities, transportation, energy efficiency, special financial remedies...

Pass the word along to me also on national green lenders. I have someone looking for a loan on Solar Power.
