"It Is What It Is"

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX South Shore Realty

How many times have you heard the phrase, "It Is What It Is" from real estate agents as well as the media when talking about the current real estate market?  This phrase brings back memories of a Seinfield episode where the cast used the term "Yada Yada Yada". Is "It Is What It Is" comparable to the phrase "Yada Yada Yada"? You are in a conversation with a real estate agent and he/she starts and the agents says the current real estate market "Is What It Is". Should the agent end the statement with "Yada Yada Yada"? The Seinfield episode leads us to belive that the term "Yada Yada Yada" is good. Is "It Is What It Is" a good term for real estate agents to use? We coin a lot of phrases when we talk about real estate. Maybe we need to use the phrase 'Yada Yada Yada" more often to help establish a more posititive outlook of the current real estate market. What do you think?

Ed,  I am not sure about the Yada, Yada, Yada stuff..... Perhaps we should say something like "This too shall pass"  Because IT WILL!!!

Ed,  I use that phrase all the time.  Especially, with my wife.  She has pointed it out to me a few times.  I think I use it because I believe there are some things you have no influence over so why beat yourself up.

I think they both get abused.  They're both good ways of ending a conversation if you want it to end though!  "You're feeling lazy and don't want to complete your sentence?  'Yada yada yada' can take care of that.  Someone just complained about something and you weren't paying attention?  'It is what it is' can take care of that!"  How's that for a commercial?

I will admit I am guilty.  Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
