I really like my profession but get very frustrated with the bad press. Yes, we all know that the days when houses sold in a day or two for a price about the listed price are gone. I must say I am really enjoying the pace of the housing market now. Buyers now have choices and educating sellers is now a very important part of our job. I just feel that the media is constantly bringing the housing market down. Almost everyday there is something in the media about how bad it is. I feel it doen't really help anyone. I feel very badly for the many people going through pre-foreclosure and foreclosure. This is an issue facing every community all over the United States. I am a very positive person by nature and really have only great things to say about todays market. I am finding that the sellers are getting better about understanding our new market and are pricing their homes to sell.
