Something great this way comes...

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

They say you get back what you put out there. Positive thoughts beget positive results.

I know we're only a handful of days into the new year, but I have to say that thus far... it looks like it's going to be a gangbuster year.

I've noticed a serious uptick in "interest"... this includes phone inquiries, requests for showings (both by my buyers and on my listings)... I see an uptick in viewings of my online listings... an uptick in appointments made by agents.  And all of this just since Christmas.

I'm looking forward to a great year, and I'm putting it out there in the universe.  "It's going to be a great year!"

I'm seeing similar with the online contacts.  Not as many showings as I'd like, but it's still slow time here.  Have an offer on a listing to negotiate & a closing in less than two weeks, so this year is off to a far better start than last year.

School is never out for the Successful.

I'm noticing an uptake of rentals here. There are enough people in the Philadelphia area to warrant a healthy rental market.

JUPITER is very lucky this year for 'things of the earth' . . . trust me, I'm an astrologer. 

There is a lot of activity. I've added over 3M in inventory in the past month and have almost another M in the Q waiting on research.

I'm needing to pace myself but will manage! (Camille-esque semi faint swoon)

Hello Alan - anticipating positive results is more than just long-shot thinking it becomes a mindset and an attitude.  That's a good start in my opinion.  Here's to good results in 2020.

We are already way ahead of last year in pending sales and investor interest is very strong. I agree that a positivr outlook coupled with some reality testing is a great way forward.

...A Local Expert in all The Hamptons

Hi Alan: I agree completely...I have seen more interest in existing homes than i have in the past 3 years! Most people who buy here in the Hamptons have been the wealthy New Construction buyer and that is about it...If your listing was built before 2017, you had a "load" on your hands. Now it appears that the buyer is wanting to do their own projects. Here's to a highly successful 2020!
