Clients call me from all over the country to help them find a property in California and Hawaii; and they are ready to buy NOW.
When listening to all the politicians running for the presidency, you would think that our economy is in the dumps.
Nothing seems to be further from the truth when it comes to my real estate brokerage. Some generalities that I can talk about that don't break client/broker confidentiality are:
1. More clients come to me to purchase homes with cash, for example. Maybe I'm not handling first time home buyers like a lot of real estate agents. For some reason, I have not been attracting them recently. Or maybe there are fewer of them?
2. My clients tend to be second home buyers, investors, and those looking forward to their retirement and want to downsize. Since my clientele want to move to the California coast or Hawaii, I'm their perfect broker to help them.
3. When we discuss financing, credit ratings for those who do want to take advantage of the low interest rates still available find this not a problem. Seemingly, these are not the people who got into trouble during the downturn of the market.
