We received some great news at out Sales Meeting yesterday. Watson Realty Corp. reports outstanding written sales of $82,953,731 volume for the week of March 8-15, 2010, which represented 418 transaction sides or 58 transactions per day.
This is the highest one-week volume the company has shown since July, 2007.
We feel a large part of the increase in volume is a result of the buyers taking advantage of the $8,000 first time buyer tax credit. One of the sales reported was one of my homes in St. Augustine. First-time homebuyers, Ashley and James Edwards are so excited to find a 2 bedroom home to meet thier needs at a unbelievable price of $59,000!
My company has placed an emphasis on reaching out to past customers, holding open houses, working the neighborhoods, and speaking at Civic organizations and Homeowner Associations to reach centers of influence. We want to spread the message that this is the time to buy! The best quote we have heard is “This is the beginning of the end of the economic cycle.”
Watson Rocks, and I am proud to be a team member.
