Is It Just Me Or Are Things Turning Around?

Real Estate Agent

SoldReally, not to brag.....BUT WHAT A WEEKEND!!!!

Finalized one contract on Saturday, received two offers on two different listings and FINALLY got my uncle's active adult ranch condo rented out.

After a contract-less January, February sure is starting off with a bang!  On the downside, and Atlanta agents don't chastise me because I know they don't work in our market, but I held an open house yesterday for a client without a single drop-in.  That's after advertising in 3 papers (at almost $400) and splashing it all over the internet.

It's amazing what a little warm weather can do for the market or is there something going on.  Could we be turning the corner for a good Spring?

Love to hear your thoughts!

It's just you!  Congrats on the contract! I've never seen it so dead in all my years in the business.  We did ratify a contract on one of our new listings.

It is not just you!  I have had a fabulous week.  Wrote a couple of contracts and even woke up to 4 more buyers from the web this morning.  I am glad you are starting to pick back up! 

 Have a Fabulous Real Estate Day!!!

Slammed here in Virginia. I don't know if it is a turnaround, but it is the busiest I have been in a year.

It's not just you.  In December our office had 2 settlements, in January we had 3 and so far for February we have 6 sales on the board to settle and other agents at other companies are saying that they are busy with buyers.  I had the phones over the weekend and on Sunday we had 15 calls, it was a great day!!

I had a crazy weekend myself taking three buyers around with more waiting in the wings.  This is a good sign and maybe a jump on the spring market!
