My 2010 procrastinators - all of a sudden are CALLING!!! :-)

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Fort Lauderdale Beach

My 2010 procrastinators - all of a sudden are CALLING!!! :-)

Funny how things work/evolve/grow - that is relationships with customers. I love it!

I've had 5 customers this week that I showed property to last year here in Fort Lauderdale contact me this week and ask about "investment properties" and/ or second home properties.

Well, guess what?  Last year, the properties that I had to show them were $100K less than what is available now. Why?  The low priced properties sold.

We have never really been distressed here in SE, Florida - Fort Lauderdale, Lauderdale By The Sea, Pompano Beach, and the Hillsboro Mile.

They are shocked that prices have risen - and not fallen (bad English, I know) - but you get the point.

When you have a good REALTOR(r), that is giving you good advice - please listen.  I know, not all agents have your best interests at heart, but I do.

How do you handle what appears to be "shock and awe" in an area INCREASING IN VALUE?

Just tell it like it is!  What say you?

Spring Fever is in the air, I think .

All the buyers are starting to come out and buy something.

Buyers should listen to their realtors, especially good realtor's advice.

cheers

Hi Karen --- Calling all procrastinors from 2006!  You thought you might buy in 2007?   Missed that great condo in 2008?  Come back, come back --- you'll discover some really great homes in 2011.

All we can do is explain the current market.  Unfortunately the market is CONSTANTLY changing, so what's happening today is not what will be happening a month from now.
