Waterfront Sales Activity for 2008

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Stars Realty

I am curious if those of you who specialize in waterfront and lake property are seeing your sales activity increase, decrease or if your current sales are stable compared to last year at this time?  I am hearing comments from other agents within my market that their sales are much slower for the first 5 months of the year and I personally haven't experienced that for the listings I have handled.  I did an MLS search and I am seeing strong activity and our website traffic is higher than ever so I am curious if this is an issue in your market with your waterfront and lake homes.  If you have time run a quick MLS report and compared the first 5 months of 2008 to the same time period in 2007 and let us know how your market is doing.

Happy Selling!

Stephanie - That is excellent news for you and for your clients.  Watch your website and virtual tour traffic because if your phone is ringing I am betting your site traffic and views are up also.

Happy Selling

Sam - waterfront sales here slowed, along with the entire market. Now we're seeing increased activity for both waterfront and nonwaterfront.

Are you going to either Cyberstars or StarPower in Orlando in July?

Hi Sharon - I have not confirmed for either events yet.  I am so busy this month and if I am equally busy in July I am going to stay here in Knox County and keep the sales activity flowing.  I already have my deposit placed for the 2009 Summit.

Sam - after the last couple of years we have to do what it takes. I had to cancel Cannon Beach - just couldn't justify the time or expense this year. Maybe we'll go 15 minutes away to Ft. DeSoto Park, which was named #1 beach in the US - but won't be able to share the time with my Cyber friends.
