Here's the problem with all of the "hurricane" hype! It's bad enough that we have an over supply of inventory. It's even worse that there aren't many buyers to be found! As Realtors, we must deal with restless, anxious & frustrated Sellers. They blame us for their homes not selling as quickly as they'd like. I find myself telling the ones that want to cancel, "you can change the jockey but the horse won't run any faster!"
Part of the problem is that all of this bad press causes people who are considering moving here to reconsider! Try paying a South Florida insurance premium! Not to mention the high property taxes! Oh, and we have alligators that eat women! The news media didn't mention that these women walked up to the alligators like they were a museum exhibit! News flash, alligators bite!
The only good thing is that I'd rather they report on a potential natural disaster than a terrorist plot or event!
