just a smidgen...

 

Again, media opinionists are pushing their narrative, creating a lot of industry chatter about cyclical patterns and impending disaster. Most days I ignore the constant static and go about my business.

 

Besides, who knows what will happen in the next shift? 

 

Those of us that have experienced a market downturn understand the need to pay attention to trends and subtle nuances in the real estate market, even if it moves just a titch. It helps to decide a clearer direction.

 

Agents in the last economic downturn learned new business practices and standards, tenacity and patience were required. They had a huge advantage over those who lost sight when the money wasn't quick.

 

In the last several years, those new to the industry took advantage of an up real estate market, many will take leave when the market corrects. Seasoned agents are prepared to remain by staying the course.

 

Successful positioning in the marketplace means being proactive, embracing change, getting out of the comfort zone and stretching that learning muscle by handling what is presently in front of us. 

 

Ignore the msm drama because every new day brings something to wow, inspire or challenge us, even if just a smidgen!

I have always hated how media or a group of so-called experts can force something to happen even when it isn't true.

The media uses fear and lies to drive their messages and those that are gullible believe it, with no question. That is sad Endre Barath, Jr.!

That is why I call them opinionists, Brian England. There are few true journalists left in the masses and the m becomes silent!

Wanda- we speak the same language!!!  I use "titch" and "smidgen" a lot. I remember in 2008 seeing agents who'd been accustomed to a phenomenal market. When it turned many did not adapt and adjust...they merely left.

Hi Wanda:

You are so right! I think your second paragraph really says it all.  The media has certainly had fun with the recent Fed announcement!

They are fun words to use that describe a small amount perfectly, Kathy Streib! Setting up a marketing and advertising plan helps us to remain in business during any real estate cycle.

They seem to really be united on their efforts to put fear into the public before anything else, including thinking logically and verifying information, Jeff Dowler, CRS. Happy Father's Day to you!

During the last market downturn, people were riding the 'fun wave' rather than paying attention to the shifts taking place. I am definitely paying attention except for the msm's agenda, Kat Palmiotti!

Good morning Wanda,

I'm so glad that Kathy Streib featured this post. I can't believe I missed it. I haven't heard that word smidgeon used in a long time! The press does seem to be united in their efforts to put fear into the public before anything else, including thinking logically and verifying information we hear in the news. We do not have journalists anymore we have reporting with an agenda  and its not in the publics best interest.

The msm continues to exaggerate a great deal more than a smidgen Dorie Dillard Austin TX and lack any kind of integrity. I remember how the National Enquirer was sued by Carol Burnett (who won) and other well known people for their salacious, untrue posts. We are in those times and people to push back!

To stay active in this market, one has to be like the jugglers that fly the plates on pins. Keep the older clients happy while trying to start some newer ones

A smigen is better than a smugen ... right?  IMHO the real estate market will always have activity. It is just a matter of how well informed we are to help our clients along the way!  I'm ready! I have worked diligently for 27 years and have a good following of buyers and sellers who are faithful ... I am grateful for what I have.

Lots of comments here!  We're on the same page Wanda.  The media decides to run with a story, then everyone piles on. With that much momentum, they will create something out of nothing!  But I do see a slow down in terms of demand right now. GREAT POST!
