The SpinMeisters at Work: Busy Spreading Recession News!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

The spinmeisters  (A media liaison or spokesperson, charged with presenting the spin for their political side) are busy spreading fear and rumors of  a recession once again to strenghten whatever agenda they are promoting.   The lastest spin is the prediction of a recession looming around the corner waiting to get us. Of course, they hide behing the cloak of goodness and in the so-called spirit of helping all of us. 

 

Although neither Ron nor I are experts at economics by any means, we are not sensing that a recession is at hand. We are bolstered by our experience in real estate both from observing our clients statistics, and by virtue of having been active in commercial real estate for over 20 years. We understand what it takes to start a business, expand one as well as run it successfully.  We are good at predicting trends and watching the market as it evolves.  

 

We also are smart enough to have some of the best financial minds who handle a substantial number of large portfolios in our brain trust.  Here is their brief take on the whole scene.  The job market is the best it has been in 60 years---which means more people are working, and the salaries are rising at an annual 3% rate.  And that means, these people have more money to spend.   And there are plenty jobs to be still filled.  Our local papers have shown 4 to 6 pages (both sides) filled with jobs both on the executive and management level.  

 

Those who watch the Santa Barbara County real estate market also do not expect a recession to occurr this yearr or in 2020.  And many Active Rain members who wrote brilliant posts on this subject have also indicated that their markets are healthy.  And, we are seeing that our clients who sell homes in the luxury arena are doing well.

 

We have gone through two recessions, and in both scenarios we did well, and as a matter of fact, we predicted the last one.  What happened then is not happening now.  

 

If you think the spinmeisters are right, take comfort in this fact.  Regardless of the economic conditions serious buyers buy real estate and serious sellers sell real estate.

CAN YOU STATE HOW YOU ARE DIFFERENT AND BETTER THAN YOUR COMPETITION IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS?

 

ABOUT:  Luxury Real Estate is a high stakes game. Commissions are substantial! We help luxury real estate professionals get to the listing table more often and win listings more frequently.  If you want to be the market leader, the personal or company brand that your target market thinks of first and refers most often, you need an Elevator Statement to accelerate the process.  We can get you there!

Your Elevator Statement is a succinct and persuasive summary of your extraordinary promise of value, your unique selling proposition.  In a time-starved world the attention span of your target market is shrinking.  To instantly convey what sets you apart from the crowd you need to be able to answer EACH ONE of these 3 questions in less than 30 seconds.: 1) What Do You Do?; 2)  How Do You Do It?, and;  3) How Are You Different?.  Can you state how you are different and better than your competition in less than 30 seconds?

Watch the video above to see and hear how we do it.

I believe you are right Alexandra. The only ones who are preaching recession are those who are promoting their own sinister agenda...

Well said Ron and Alexandra- Those who push a looming recession have little true regard for their fellow citizens but would rather ensure that their agenda is pushed as far as it can go. You and others have quoted the facts and they are what they are!!!

Don't worry - now we have the I word in Washington to keep us all spun up.  I guess since the spinmeisters couldn't get us with the R word now we have the I word to bring out the death and destruction!

Kathy Streib so many of the members who wrote posts on this issue had the same take.  The real numbers, the real stats matter.  Our country is enjoying prosperity and jobs, why start in with gloom and doom...A

Markets are cyclical, but I gotta agree. NO redux of the badabust! And there is money to be made in ANY market. We know how!

First way is not to listen to 'spin for shock and awe'!

Candice A. Donofrio Thank you for the feature in Bartender Make It A Double.  I remember the Savings and Loan Debacle, when the commercial pool on the Westside went from 800 agents to 500.  Those that knew where the fish were biting made $$$.  Have a great weekend.  A

Thank you for your entry in September's challenge, Alexandra. I do agree, most (if not all) of our markets are quite healthy. The media, for some reason (and we all know why), want us to believe that the economy is tanking. 

It's really quite sad that they have this much 'control' over our nation. I wish more people would boycott the all-day news programs (or any who do not practice true journalism). I'd love to see them go out of business - talk about an economical boost!

A ploy to win elections or get us all on anti-anxiety meds?  Hmmm.  Either way, it does feel like we are living in the children's book Chicken Little.
