One of Aesop's fables is the story of the Tortoise & the Hare. (Not familiar? Click the link! This is a perfect read out loud bedtime story for little ones.) It's the story of a race between these two. The tortoise is slow and steady, and wins the race.
Have you noticed that even as the numbers of agents, lenders, and others whose living is tied to real estate have dwindled this year, Active Rain continues to grow in membership? We're adding tortoises!
We Tortoises are picking up side jobs, adding to our areas of expertise, and in general, doing what it takes to stay in the business we love. I believe 2009 is destined to be a "Tortise & Hare" market for those of us committed to the business of real estate.
I'm adding a proficiency in an area long out of favor with both agents and lenders alike: the sale and financing of manufactured homes.
Active Rain has a Professional Channel for Manufactured Homes. I'll be blogging about these affordable, lower priced homes on that channel.
I'll also be blogging on Localism about areas near Tucson like the community of Picture Rocks, a community of one to five acre homesites surrounded on three sides by the Saguaro National Park (west.) The predominant type home here is a mobile home, and the beauty of living in the desert southwest is very, very affordable.
Are you looking for a manufactured home surrounded by Tucson's warmth and the beauty of the Arizona desert? Call me. (520) 349-9090
