Random Thoughts for the Week (Philadelphia Rentals, Lexus, Attitude)

1.  Philadelphia Rentals - We have seen a boom of rental demand in the last 2 weeks.  During that time, we rented out 4 Random Thoughts for the Weekunits in Old Kensington, 2 in Old City and 1 in Northern Liberties.  For one of the units in Old Kensington, we had 4 applications.  For the one in Northern Liberties, we are still getting two emails a day.  It is amazing as each of these units has been marketed for the last 2 months or so.  Did folks just wait until the last minute for January Philadelphia rentals or is this a sign that demand is started to pick back up ?  Also, where there are more people looking to rent, there are more looking to buy, especially with low mortgage rates (for now) and the extended and expanded tax credit.

 

2. Lexus - Talk about customer service at Lexus of Cherry Hill!  This place is a good example for anyone to experience the epitome of client service.  Stephanie and I went in there one day last week and walked out with a Lexus (which was our goal).  But we did not expect the process and transition to be so smooth.  It has been a long time since either of us got a new car so we were expecting more haggling and frustration and for the process to take much longer than it did.  I will elaborate on this more but am still in awe about that experience.  Thank you Tim Deluca for referring me to Tom and Mike at Lexus of Cherry Hill.

 

3.  Attitude - I am excited about the next person in regard to 2010 !  I am a huge goal setter and believe in getting pumped up and goal setting to accomplish the things you dream about.  But a gentle reminder is that it all starts with attitudeYou have to really want it, believe in it, have faith and do not give up when the chips are down !

Maybe the rental boom is a result of the rising number of foreclosures.  People have to find housing.  As for the Lexus, I agree they have customer service down pat.  I bought an LX470 over the phone from 1000 miles away and the dealer delivered to to me on a car hauler.  Now thats great service....The delivery cost was not added on to the price we agreeed upon.
