Do Elections Play Into Purchasing Real Estate?

By
Real Estate Agent with Harry Norman Realtors 280064

I have been trying to tune out all the crazy mud slinging happening in the Presidential election this year, however...the negative tone has appeared to cause buyers to hesitate purchasing homes. Refraining from my own personal opinions on which candidate would make the best President, I look forward to this election year being over. That has been difficult to do at times, but I am actually happy I have succeeded in staying calm and refraining from outbursts of emotions over this campaign.

Our market in the area where I serve, has seen peaks and valleys of sales, but everyone I take out will start a conversation on what a mess this election year is causing them on decisions to move or stay in their current location. I tactfully lead the conversation in another course of positive thinking.

 

Whoever you are voting for this year, please encourage others to VOTE too.  We are blessed to live in a country where that privilege is cherished.

This is my 7th presidential election cycle in the business and it seems typical to me.  Business has always trended downward, more so when the incumbent cannot run. In my opinion people tend to hold on to their savings in a "let's see what direction we go" mental frame of mind.

I believe however that it doesn't matter if the democrat or the Republican wins we all as tax payers and Americans have been loosing to those elitist in Washington for decades.
