Yoh don't have to be a real estate Agent to know if houses are selling.
If you are a Real Estate Agent either standing in line in the grocery store,pumping gas,getting money from your bank or at a fast food restaurant and you are WEARING YOUR NAME BADGE (One great way for people to know that you are not a private real estate agent and generate potential home buyer and seller leads),that is a question I'm sure many of us are asked a lot. People are inundiated with mixed opinions from various different sources. So who else can give you the 411 of real estate in your area,subdivision or neighborhood than the purveyors of real estate? YOU-the Real Estate Agent.
But you don't just have to be a real estate agent to know how thd real estate market is performing. Loan officers, Home Inspectors,Closing Agents who works at a Title Companies,Appraisers,Moving Companies,Contractors and maybe painters would probably be able to answer the question.
But how would they be able to know you ask? These professions that I just mentioned businesses are also tied to real estate. You can't close a real estate transaction without having to deal with at least one of the them. And if they're business is performing well,chances are they know that it is a good time to buy or sell a house.
