How will our Industry change after tommorrow?

Real Estate Agent with Exit Realty Premier

I know this is a thought many of us have. How will our industry change after the change of our President? How do you think a Democratic regime will change our business, or are people like Steve Harney from Keeping Current Matters and Dean Hartman from Continental Home Loans right, when they say it is up to us the agents. That we must educate our sellers to price there homes to sell today and to educate the buyers past their wait and see attitudes and buy today!

I believe we are somewhere in the middle. We must, as professional in the Real Estate Industry do our part, by education and promotion on what the opportunities for our clients really are at this time. We must be stronger on pricing and placing only marketable homes on the market, or walk away. Also, we must make our voices heard in the political arena to what is really needed to be done with the money the government is willing to put into the "fix of the mortgage debacle".

Only time will tell.  I just hope the market pickup we have had in my area continues.

I don't have my hopes up as we have had a democratic congress for the passed 2 years and nothing has happened. But, I really do hope with even more democrats in office including the president that we can get the banks to start moving as they have been promising for awhile now.

Welcome to the rain and thanks for the thought provoking question.
