What is disturbing the Real Estate Universe?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Godzyk Real Estate Services NH License 033394

Is there a full moon? Maybe I was complacent that the spring market came in the middle of winter here in NH. That there was a steady flow of new listings. That there was a steady flow of buyers. That I have the unique ability to match the two and sell more houses the first two months of a year in 34 years of selling real estate. Last week something weird happened. The phone stopped ringing. What was different? 

 

You only had to turn on the TV to see the market going down and Corona Virus fears dancing through peoples heads. You had two groups of people forming. Those who wanted to lock themselves in their homes and those whose lives go on, but with caution. Come Saturday I was prepared for a slow day and taking Sunday off. Then as fast as they slowed, the phones started to ring again. 

 

Being out and about talking to people got me a great insight what the public thinks. As they got more information, fear subsided. Not knowing breeds fear, so having public officials to our Governor to the President finally come on TV and talk to everyone soothed those thoughts. Here in NH there is no panic. Home Owners were ready to list again. YES, one did ask about not letting sick people in their home when it comes time to show. That will be a great blog to expand to later in the week.

 

Buyers came back in droves over the weekend to see homes. SO, we are listing, we are showing and that means selling. The stock market bounced back Monday with a 1200 plus increase had people feeling better. The reality is you have more of a chance of catching the regular flu then COVID 19. There is nothing like hearing a sneeze though and seeing people scramble. 

 

 

IN THE END most people see past the media's bias of "sensationalizing" anything to grab viewers. The hard fact is you should have been washing your hands before this and should keep washing them after this goes away. The media succeeded in interest rates dropping, so buyers get out there and buy. Sellers, the buyers are waiting. AND.. so am I, ready to assist you through each step of buying or selling a home. 

 

 

In summary, your choice of agents matters. My philosophy is simple, provide more personal and professional service to guide my clients through each step of the buying or selling process. All Agents are not created equal and every buyer or seller should take the time to hire the BEST not just the biggest. Those that hire me, find a dedication like no other.

Hello Scott - there's always a back story of some kind occurring.  Real buyers and real sellers continue to do the things they "do".  Be aware and stay focused.

It's time for calm heads and fact-finding. This hype is really silly.  Taking smart precautions to avoid spreading germs is always smart, but there is no reason to put life on hold. D

Markets of all types hate uncertainty.  I was at the grocery store this morning, and a lady in the checkout line put it succinctly.  Watching your portfolio decline 12% makes you want to curtail spending.  I was glad to see the 1200+ point recovery yesterday.  However, we are down again today!

Good morning, Scott... I am beyond tired of the media's role in sensationalizing so many things and opining on issues instead of reporting on them.

My wife, broker owner for 25 years, said in the fall.... it's going to be a rocky year, business always falls off in election years and people are crazy.  I think she even asked a question about business being down in election years here in the  Q & A and I was surprised it didn't seem to be a thing in other markets, but perhaps people just don't remember

Scott- You are absolutely right...washing our hands, covering our mouths when we sneeze...we should be doing this all of the time. My little niece and nephews already know how to do this.
