After Today's Presidential Election... What's Next?

After today’s Presidential election... what’s next? Today, like most of you I lack a crystal ball on the outcome. However, what I do know for certain that today’s election is about the future of our economy. And for those of us who remain in real estate there are too many issues on the table not only for our small businesses but also for the opportunities home ownership and real investment bring to every community.

What I wonder about today is our post-election economy. Many of us have customers and clients on the fence until after the election.They could not make decisions because of the uncertainty that surrounds any close election race. However, tomorrow many of them will be having kitchen table conversations. They will be deciding whether they can afford to sell their home in their local real estate market. Others will decide if it is a good time to buy for their bottom line. Many of them will be calling us to find out our expert opinion about our local real estate market.

I am still thinking about my answers. I’m wondering if you are too. What is your take on our post-election real estate market? Do you have one?

Hi Em....first of all, I love your new photo.... to answer your question, I've been thinking about that for the past year.... I think about that whenever I hear a negative ad.... I think about that whenever I feel we are advancing in the right direction.... we could slam to the bottom too easily.

Barb, when we are bouncing on the bottom it is often difficult to even think differently. We have to begin to break the habit of real estate the old way and help our customers and clients look at strategies that are focused on their savings and investments. As for the new picture, the pup stepped off the planet and it was time for me to fly solo. Good to see you as always.

Hi Emily - If only I had a crystal ball, right? I don't think either candidate will make as big an impact on the housing market as having the election over will :)

I'm thinking the certainty of having it DONE will be a positive thing no matter who wins.  Indecision tends to cripple consumers when they hear such negative stuff on both sides of the aisle.  The reality is really that our Senators and Congressman are equally powerful in the legislative branch, maybe more so in that they are the problem solvers and law makers.  THOSE are the folks we are relying on to solve our eonomic problems.  The President has the final say in signing, or vetoing things, but the spotlight is squarely on them.  Vetoing solutions is not a good plan when you alone are in the spotlight.

I am going out on a limb and saying if Obama wins, we continue with recovery.  If Romney wins, we have no idea what will happen.

Emily, I think our local market will stay pretty much the same. I think we have turned a corner where buyers will be much more careful and may delay their purchases for years.

Emily, great discussion and the American people are demanding reconciliation and better change...all parties working together (a laugh here) and the real estate market is progressing bit by bit better.

Wayne & Jean, I agree as uncertainty does impact decision making about everything.

Chris, this morning we have a "new" certainty and a new Congressional make up. I think what will be interesting how this impacts our local real estate markets. Real estate is local, however financing and information about real estate is online and global.

Kevin, now we have certainty with the election over. Are you bullish on your local market?

Debbie, I think the only reason buyers are delaying purchases is related to financing. It will be interesting to see what this "new" certainty brings to the table for mortgage financing.

Ginny, from my view in the trenches, there is a great deal of demand for Santa Fe real estate. The issue is frequently mortgage financing and the debt to income ratio. Many of my customers these last 2 qtrs have been cash or 1031 exchange buyers. As for working togther, this applies to buyers and sellers as well. Only when people start focusing on solutions will they find opportunities.

Emily, it will be interesting!    Have had many clients asking about the 3.8% "tax" and wondering how buying & selling will affect them in the next year.

I have had similar questions but the one I get the most from boomers thinking about relocating is all about our Santa Fe property taxes which fortunately are lower than most states on the east and west coasts.

Emily, it was great chatting with you, even a short conversation!    It is nice to show homes to East Coast or West Coast buyers and when they find out that we have MUCH lower property taxes, they are excited!

Hi Emily,

Here it is almost 2 weeks post election and I still have no idea what to tell people going forward.  I only know what is happening now in our local market and what we've heard here and there.  There are definitely signs of improvement here and I am just hopeful it wasn't just to look good for the elections. 

By the way, love your new profile picture!

Happy Thanksgiving!

EMILY! Have been away also-but good to see you and yes, love the new photo. From my vantage point, have been seeing reality sneak back into expectations of both sellers and buyers over the last year, and I believe it will continue. People want to be happy, and they want to get on with their lives.

Joan, given the election news has been replaced by "tax" news, many of my inquiries begin with the sentence "what are your property taxes etc..."

DeeDee, I have been beyond slammed with inquiries from all over the US and overseas. At present, buyers are a bit jittery given uncertainly about "fiscal cliff" news story. At the same time, many of those callers tell me they are pulling cash out of the stock market with the intent to buy property in the future. And many are disappointed that the "great" deals are gone. The latter being the fence sitters. Overall I see renewed interest and uncertainty. Not a balanced mix for sure.

Maria, I agree people want to be happy and go on with their lives, work and dreams. The endless drama the news created this year first with the election, then the middle east and now the "fiscal cliff" crisis continues to add a dose of fear into the new normal or reality of real estate. Fortunately, humans can still turn off the news, search online for homes, call a Realtor and see homes. This is more of what I see happening every day.
