Remaining Positive

Real Estate Agent with Frank Rubi Real Estate
The real estate company I am an agent with decided to have a meeting Saturday.  The broker brought with her a recent article from our local newspaper.  The headlines showed how real estate sales were in the tank.  Well upon further reading into the statistics the truth could be had.  True there were more houses for sale, but guess what, the houses sold at current pace would more than double last years.  Furthermore the sales price are trending up not down.  I guess it's the old glass half empty, glass half full scenario.  Bottom line is keeping a good can do attitude and you will succeed.

Sometimes a headline is crafted to present someone's agenda when the article and stats that follow say a totally different thing. Case in point-have you ever read the NY Times? The bottom line: Living in America the bad times aren't really that bad compared to the rest of the world. I guess you could say the glass is always half full if you're an American.

I would say you know your market better than any newspaper with an agenda.

Understanding the whole picture always helps. Your analogy is so correct and if you are optimistic to getting the glass full, you will do well.

The past 5 years I have noticed more of a media interest in our business than ever before.  Well I say tune them out all together.  Do your own research and make your own news!

Be positive always. Take anything and turn it positive.  Catch yourself slipping into the negative, whack yourself on the side of the head, turn it into a positive and move on.

For instance if the news was real estate sales were in the tank and they are getting worse, then you might tell yourself something like, "Good, this will separate the men from the boys. There will be a thinning of the herd and when we come out of this market I will have a larger market share".

Positive thinking.  You should do it in your personal life too. Make it a habit. Teach your employees to do it. Afterall, you want to surround yourself with positive people.  Positive attitudes are contagious. Unfortunately, so are negative attitudes.

I fully agree with all comments. This article intention was to promote negative and purpose to sell newspaper as I refer to it. Reports have nothing better to talk about other than negative. I am in that market. How come they did not ask me my opinion of the market. Since May I have average a closing a week. Today is no different with a closing today @ 2 PM. Where is my press. I am not the only. John, the author is a new agent, he has three schedule for July. These reports are lazy and the only thing they know is how write creatively.
