Buyers Where Are You????

Real Estate Agent with Community First Real Estate

Reality Bites... or at least stings a whole lot.

My dearest Upstate, facts are facts and it's time to face them. Whilst we've worked diligently convincing our sellers, buyers, neighbors and Belk department store clerk that the area market is holding its own, it seems Lady Market has her own agenda.  And, much to the chagrin of this English major, the fanciest rhetoric scales not the stanch wall of non-existent buyerdom.

We're not yet Florida, or Vegas or Southern California or slews of other droopy real estate markets- thanks be to God. And though we're not yet belly-sliding through the barren real estate desert searching, desperately, for the buyer-laden oasis, we are rather thirsty and maybe a little hungry. Does the air seem dry to you?

I have it on good authority- someone said the market is down 25% from last year. I'm unwilling to believe it's been that drastically affected. Still, there are, like, five zillion homes for sale in Thornblade and half of Providence is listed.

Maybe the media hype's got something to do with the lack of buyers buying- Perhaps we, as Real Estate Activists, can make a deal with the Media... my prized green beach cruiser (complete with Chihuahua-toting basket and bell... ring,ring) for your Silence?

Keep your chin up. The market will go down and it will come up...just life.
