Stay Positive | Dream Big | Make It Happen | You'll Have A Good Year

I’m a firm believer that “when deals are needed, they will always be there!”  Just keep working!! Foolish??  Oh, No!! The market is tough here, but we are ending the year strong.

 

 

However, there was a big deal that was questionable, and the buyer released part of the deposit to the seller and made it nonrefundable.  Buyers don’t hand over thousands, when they think the deal may not close.

 

Good things will always happen, when one stays positive. For the past 41 years, I’ve always believed that “when deals are needed, they will be there.” To this day, that’s always been the case. Now, I’ve said it twice!

 

The real estate market has slowed across the country. December has always been a strong month for us; and in 2019, it looks like it’s continuing to fall into place.

 

 

2020 is just around the corner, and it’s an election year!!  Oh, my. That means more emotion and turmoil before November of 2020.

 

 

That reminds me of “If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you….” In an election year, we may have many days of losing control. It will all pass, and there will be better days ahead.

 

 

Just as Rudyard Kipling gave paternal advice, my common sense way of thinking works well for us. Focus and think positively… it’s just common sense.

 

Just another thought for the moment….

My Broker has a great attorney that just posted a good video on termination of contract and how careful agents have to be because they are not party to the contract. I know all states are different, but one thing he said that many agents don't do is to read the contract carefully and to make sure clients know what they are signing. Your paragraph about the "buyer released part of the deposit to the seller, and made it nonrefundable,"  must have been very stressful for all. Staying positive and calm when there are storms is without question the most persuasive and healthy too.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP not stressful at all.... it was the buyers' idea....ALL OF OUR CLIENTS HAVE AN ATTORNEY FROM STEP 1....

the buyers' and sellers' attorneys negotiated the deal and the paperwork.... we are always the last to see everything and we like it that way.... no stress at all.... 

every real estate agent would be wise to have each client hire a real estate attorney to handle all paperwork and negotiating after the purchase and sales has been signed.... i.e., the releasing of a portion of the deposit.....

Barbara, we are not an attorney state but the idea of client hiring attorney to negotiate the paperwork  sounds intriguing - let them deal with the monkey wrench throwers.
