Bail-outs, Layoffs, Store Closings, Unemployment, Bankruptcy, Recession, Depression - Gloom and Doom are everywhere. TV, Radio, Newspapers and Magazines are all harking the bad news.
What would happen if we decide not to participate? Unemployment is close to 8%, but that means 92% of the population IS employed, right?
Real estate is still the best investment out there. God isn't making anymore - last time I checked.
In the Ozarks (SW Missouri) we had inflated prices, but not to the degree other parts of the country had. In 2008 properties sold at 94% list to sell ratio here. That is not bad.
I am frequently talking to people who are thinking that 1.4% interest on their Money Markets or CD's is not enough and are determining to invest that money in land and property.
So call me a Cockeyed Optomist (South Pacific), but our phones are starting to ring more, we had three walk-in's this week, and I have two offers working. If people are looking at lake property, spring can't be far away and springtime in the Ozarks is a wonderful thing!
I've got 'THAT' feeling again. Charged up and ready for the fun of selling some Table Rock Lake property in Shell Knob, Missouri. FORECAST: Sunny Sales
