Here we are in the Midwest, Chicago area, ready to enjoy spring, dust off the bikes, start taking walks outside and what do we get-6 inches of snow today!!
Our office was just starting to get a few more showings and people were just starting to start thinking "new Home" again. This winter has been so long with so much snow, colder temps, flooding, and just horrible driving conditions that I think it has really impacted the real estate market. The weather coupled with the interest rates coupled with the price of gas has created what I like to call it "the perfect storm".
I think we all just need to brace ourselves, get back to the basics of prospecting, and get through this perfect storm. When the market turns around or stabilizes, the strong will survive and it will be a wonderful thing. Hang in there-spring is coming!!!
