Too much Negativity!

In response to my own negative postings, I decided it is time to talk about some positives in the real estate market. Not generally a negative person, I think that there are some good (better) things going on:

1) I actually heard 2 financial specialists talk positively about the real estate market this morning, on the Early Show and on Good Morning America. They said it was a geat time to buy!

2) My listing clients understand how difficult marketing their homes can be in this market and are extremely responsive to my suggestions and open to discussing offers.

3) This one is personal, but I finally had some time to clean out my storage area and guest room.  I recognize that it is August, but I was able to sort through all of the ski pants and gloves thrown in a laundry basket last snow storm (a scary long time ago)!

4) There is a real spirit of cooporation among all parties to a transaction.  Realtors, lenders, settlement agents, buyers and sellers are all working together to make sure that the deals work!

5) The Realtors, lenders, and settlement agents who stick this out will be full-timers (or at least fully committed) who see real estate as a career, not just an extra revenue stream.

Feel free to share your feelings about the current state of the real estate market.

I especially agree with your fifth comment and can't wait until all the uncommitted agents are out of the picture, they only assist those fulltimers in a negative perception.

Good for you Holly!  You do need to have postive feedback during the day, and it seems you did well today.  I no longer listen to those morning programs.  Most times, they are negative.  It seems to sell better.  I go out for morning coffee, write in my journal, write 5 notes to folks I have met this week, and then head home to take my lab for a nice walk around the neighborhood.  Like you, I run into good people all day, thank goodness.  Have you read, "The Law of Attraction?"  You may find it interesting:)

It's a Good Life!

Possitive possitive possitive,  you just have to be possitive.
