That's the only way I can describe it. Everything is dependent on the situation. In our area we can't say that it's a good market or that it's a bad market. It's just a CRAZY market. CNN's Money Magazine just printed an article yesterday listing the 25 Best Places to Live in the Country and FOUR of the top twenty five are in our marketing area of NE Ohio. Wadsworth, Ohio placed #6 on the list. We are selling houses here. I recently pulled the MLS statistics for the top 25 agents in our marketing area. FIVE of the top 25 work out of my office. No other company had more than one agent (if they had even one agent) on the list. Our group is very enthusiastic and they make sure they point out everything good happening in the market today. Those of us in the business for 21 years say we don't know what tomorrow will bring - everything changes weekly! What we did 10 years ago might not work today, and By God, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks!!! I love suggesting to an agent, "Hey, let's try this" - something I've never heard of before! But we try it and it works! What can be more important than having a buyer or seller happy about what we have accomplished?
So in this CRAZY market -- where doing things the same way all the time will only bring you the same results -- D.S.D. == DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT! Have some fun with your business and with your clients. Think of "Green Eggs and Ham" - try it you might like it!
