Oh Shift, Here We Go!

 

Some of us professionals have experienced this change in course before. Those newer to the industry, have only enjoyed the opportunity to make quick money while riding the 'fun wave' of a brisk market.

 

Many agents will be phased out again when the market cycles. More experienced ones are better prepared to stay the course, realizing the need to pay attention to trends and subtle nuances in local selling areas.

 

The big rush to buy a property has cooled considerably, though there are still consumers looking. Sellers are no longer able to throw a ridiculous price out there, playing Spaghetti Real Estate, seeing if it sticks.

 

Thriving in business, in any market can be accomplished when changing the focus. Creating a confident means of moving forward and being alert to what is heading your way, gives a true sense of direction.

 

Change is coming, that's a fact and to prepare, you can.

  • Take a seminar or class
  • Watch the local market stats
  • Pay attention to national trends


Am I ready to open the mind and move toward the next new direction of business? I better be because OH SHIFT, HERE WE GO!

Dear Wanda,

Looking forward to a more balanced market, where people buy and sell fair and square. I never like waiving an inspection for either side. It is good to know what the status was at the time of sale. It gives buyers an idea about what they have to save for first and sellers the peace of mind that they sold a nice house.

Good morning Wanda,

I love the title and your post tells it like it is! Frankly I'm ready for a more balanced market. There are always sifts we just have to learn to practice the 3 A's Anticipate, Adapt and Adjust.

Keep an open mind and educate yourself. A balanced market does not mean everything is going to you know where.

The brisk market benefitted power buyers over those on a budget who couldn't compete, Dorte Engel. Due diligence is an important aspect of the real estate process that benefits all parties involved!

Hi Wanda:

Yes, indeed, lots of shift, and it's an important time to set appropriate expectations with buyers and sellers!

Setting the new expectation will be more challenging for some sellers, not so much for the majority of buyers, Jeff Dowler, CRS. Am thinking that will be the case, anyway, here WE GO!

One thing that is guaranteed in the real estate industry is that there will be change, Jan Green - Scottsdale, AZ. Cycle, cycle, cycle! Some people will be very resistant to adapting and adjusting, those are the ones that have definitely rode the ‘fun wave’ and enjoyed it immensely.

So true Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! !  This year is my 20th in business and I have really taken a more relaxed attitude about it all.  Unfortunately, my real estate daughter is a victim this year of change.  After 4 years in resale she signed up for a new-build community 2 months ago and they just shut down, going to sell of their MANY lots.  This week she's lined up 2 builders for interviews.  Argh.  But I KNOW she will land one of them.  She's a force!
