Over Promise And Under Produce, Sound Familiar?
We in real estate have been accused of this for a very long time haven't we? There are many times that we get caught up in the moment and start to give away the farm. So why is that of any relevance to this post? My point of this statement is very simple; we are in the middle of a very heated presidential campaign and filled with promises.
I was watching the national news the other evening when a reporter made this observation, "The Promises Made in the Heat of a Campaign Are Not Always Easy to Keep", could this be one area of over promising and then under producing? Or do we get caught up in the moment and not ask the questions that need to be asked or just go along with the hopes of a miracle? Just like our sellers, we want to have things done quickly and with the least amount of problems in our country, will we get what is being promised? OR, should we be asking the questions of our candidates that should be asked? Joe the Plumber ask questions, shouldn't we? There have been more broken campaign promises than marriages that have ended in divorce. And I have this funny feeling that this newly elected president will do the same thing.
I once heard that for every wrong that is corrected there is another wrong created. There have been a lot of promises made by both parties to right a lot of wrongs so, how many wrongs will be created when all is said and done?
I say no more over promising and under producing! Sure, I won't hold my breath until this actually happens in politics.
