Diary of a Real Estate Professional - Day 37

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas

As most people will say we are in a challenging Real Estate market. It's not an easy market for anyone involved in a transaction; buyer, seller, buyer's agent, seller's agent, banks, lenders, title/escrow officers. I focus on the positives, the possibles. After 2 to 3 months of searching for a resale home with my clients, we ended up signing a contract with a new home builder. My clients are every excited to be buying a single story home priced at $100/sqf before upgrades of their choice. There are more options than searching for a resale home, especially bank owned. Do what most people won't do. Look for other ways to find clients homes. The key is don't EVER give up. There IS a home for everyone. The job of a Realtor is to build relationships with partners, include new home Sales Associates. Talking to people is much easier than searching for homes on the MLS :)

Being creative is how the real agents or investors will make it in today's market.  Doing things the old hat way will cause a lot of frustration.
