I just wanted to share my success in this last month. I have been working with a lot of first time buyers to help get them into a great home. Most of them are looking at reo homes. I have learned to be patient and upfront with my clients about what to expect. This month I have put 3 people in to escrow and have 2 other offers out waiting for response. I am not naive and I know that we still have some ways to go to get out of this mess. I am just grateful that I do not have to convince my buyers that it is a good time to buy, they can see that for themselves. I have a feeling that in our local board we will be losing more agents but that is what happens when the market lingers for over 2 years at a negative growth. This just helps those of us out there working. This year we are going to see some positive changes. We are going from good to great in 08!
