New Year = New Market?

Real Estate Agent with Cypress Residential Group

Today is going to be a little less educational and more personal impression.

There has been alot of talk about what the market is and whether or not it's a good time to buy or sell or refinance.  Real estate is definitely a hot topic right now.  What is my opinion?

First, about a week ago, I decided that I'm so tired of watching the national media focus on Detroit, Phoenix, and Las Vegas that I refuse to talk to anyone that mentions those cities.  Those are the EXCEPTIONS to the market.  Things aren't perfect, but we had 3 consecutive years of historical sales, it had to go down at some point.

As of last week, my new slogan is, I create "My Market."  Since doing this, I have actually recieved phone calls on 4 different listing.  One has already turned into an offer, I'm awaiting another offer, and I have two and possibly three showings for tomorrow. 

Part of this is the practices in which I put in place and the state of mind that I have forced myself to be in.  If you are going to be negative, the people around you will be.  I don't see any reason for us to be negative.

It is the first time in history (that I can find) that has produced a buyer's market with interest rates BELOW 6%.  What more could someone want?  Especially a first time home buyer. 

So next time you want to know how the market is, define the market.  Because I'm determine to make "My Market" the best around in 2009.
