It has been a very long time since I last posted, mostly because I have been very busy last year. I had close to 25 transactions last year, many of which were motivated buyers trying to capitalize on the 8,000 dollar government tax credit. I have to say that I think it was a wise move on the governments part and I think it was great for the real estate industry and related industries in general.
Here is the question I have for everyone. Has the tax credit made us lazy and has it cramped our style? Before the tax credit I had to work a bit harder to keep buyers motivated, with the tax credit in play I really don't have to work as hard. Is this the same experience with you and other brokers that you know? Do you think that our business will decline significantly when the credit goes away? Do you have a marketing plan in place to keep you in the game when buyers have less incentive to purchase a home?
These are uncertain times and even with business picking up for me, I just hope I keep it together and spur on new business. I have a consistent marketing campaign and I have good relationships with past clients, but will it be enough?
I am mostly a positive person in general, but I thought I would throw this out there for my fellow Active Rainer's. Are you ready for potentially leaner days? What is your plan to be successful in your market?
I wish great success for those who want it for themselves.
