Diary of a MAD REALTOR! (or Royal View Revisited)

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Wright Realty

I am hopping mad!!!!! I don't understand why our government let things get to the point where we're at!  I live in the most wonderful, beautiful, scenic place in the whole world, and I can't sell it! 

WHY?  Because people are so scared right now, that no one is capable of making the decision of purchasing anything that is considered "luxury" - we live in a predominantly vacation-home area, and it is hurting us badly.  I personally have had three lost sales in the past 2 weeks as a result of the "fear-monger media"...people really do think the media has all the answers!

When is this madness going to stop?????  The Europeans (especially the Brits) helped us out this weekend by voting on some measures that will flow money again---that will help us too!  Hopefully, our government will be equally proactive and do the same!

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on how to sell this gorgeous land of ours, I am all ears! Tips? Ideas? 

 Here is a short video of the development that I am proud to call home:  Royal View!  The fall foliage this year was absolutely brilliant - even video doesn't seem to do it justice! 

Thanks for allowing me to vent this morning!

Rose you aren't the only one who can't sell much right now.  All I can say is don't give up.

Rose,

Thanks for the post. I am constantly reminding buyers that they need a place to live whether they have a job or not. They have not resigned themselves to living on the street and if you can pay your landlord's mortgage you can pay your own. Prices and interest rates will not remain low, now is the time. You get afford to buy now, or wish that you did when the market rebounds.
