Almost every day without fail whether it be from a client or from someone who just finds out I am real estate, I get the question.."So, how is the market? Are you doing okay?" My first comment is well, I may not be a good one to ask because I had a great year last year and am having a terrific year this year. What I do see is alot of inventory sitting on the market and it's taking longer to sell a home these days because there are so many to choose from. My next question, is "What do you think is going to happen in the future?" Granted, I can't tell the future, and even though I am having a great year, I am finding the market to be unpredictable as well as sporadic. Nashville was ranked as one of the top cities for investment markets as well as a stable and growing economy.
I realize I deal with a lot of relocation so I am constantly seeing people move into our fair city; however, I am seeing in spite of the economic downtown alot of spending. Just this Spring Break we were at Disney World at it was packed from other "Spring Breakers." I realize Nashville, TN has not been affected as much; however, everytime I get asked that question, the people asking have such a look of sympathy on their face.
Is anyone else having as good a year as me and is also being asked that question? I would love to hear.
