Wow! Some really powerful thunderstorms in our area of the last several days. We definitely needed rain but what a show of nature's power. Thankfully we did not see the flooding that some other areas have seen.
Nature is a lot like real estate. It can be hot or cold. There are definitely different seasons to selling, and you never know when all hell will break loose. As I was thinking about the analogy, I also thought that we tune in to the weather everyday to prepare for it. Shouldn't we be doing the same thing for real estate. Each morning shouldn't' we be checking the current status of the market in our area and prepare for it. I realize the real estate does not change quite as quickly as the weather can but it can be just as volatile and we need to be prepared. Make checking the real estate weather a part of your everyday routine and don't get caught in a storm with no protection!
