I hear so many people complaining (including myself) that the media is portraying the real estate market so negatively.
SO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT then!!
Stop posting negative news about the housing market. Instead, why don't you focus on ALL of the positive things that are happening in your real estate market and post about those things? Why do we need 50 bazillion more bad posts about how slow the sales are? Why don't you highlight how many people have actually purchased and closed on a home in the last few months instead of how many are still for sale that haven't moved?
Stop feeding into the frenzy! If you don't have anything positive to say on your blog about your market, then do you really expect a buyer to think that now is the time they should be buying a home? If you are negative about your own real estate market, then what does that tell other people? STOP BEING NEGATIVE!!
So what if the number of sales are down from this time last year? What about all the people that are buying homes right now? Post those numbers. Those are people that didn't buy into the frenzy and still purchased real estate!
Start being positive. Start posting positive things and see if positive results starts to happen out of it! Post FACTUAL positive information about your market. Be honest of course in the information you post. But go post something positive! Maybe your phone is ringing more. Maybe showings have increased on some of your listings. Maybe you've had more buyer traffic or registration on your website, maybe sales are up in your area, maybe prices are now holding firm in your area, maybe you've had the best year ever, maybe you're showing more homes lately....whatever the good news is, POST IT!!
The change starts with you! What are you waiting for? Go post something positive and then come back here and link to it in your comment so we can all see what positive things are happening nationwide instead of so much negative news!
I guarantee you that you won't have to look very far to find something positive to post about!!
