Diary of a Las Vegas Realtor Professional - Day 40

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Las Vegas

Another day in my favorite profession, real estate where everyone wants to know about it, thinks they know it and few fully understand it and interpret it. I love being a Realtor, especially in Las Vegas! After few challenging transactions, I decided to take this Tuesday and Wedneday off. Intead of working 6 days a week, my goal is towards working 4 days a week. Ever read the book 'The 4 hr Week' by Tim Ferris? I'm following his guidelines to work less yet accomplish more.  Las Vegas is the only place I can think of where driving one hour away to Mt. Charleston one will see snow capped mountains, feel the cold air, see snowflakes, yes it snowed while I was there, when in the valley one hour south is 70's to 80's degree. How refreshing is it to be our own boss, take time off when I say it's time and seek no other permission (unless we have a spouse and responsibility).  Refreshing to have hobbies and a life outside of the busyness of real estate transactions. Coming back to the office the next day, really didn't miss much. Missed a meeting, missed several phone calls, missing emails. Nothing that is earth shattering. I checked today's inventory level in Las Vegas. We are back at 10,013 homes. Volume is slightly over 10,000 which is first in several weeks. For the past month or two, Las Vegas inventory has always been under 9,999 homes. Is the tax credit expiration discouraging people from buying? Are banks releasing more inventory? Are people expecting prices to fall in the next few months? No one knows for sure. One thing I do know is I love being a Realtor. For all the Realtors out there, tell our story at www.theHeartoftheMarket.com.
