Staying Up in a Down Market

By
Real Estate Agent with The Fischetti Group/Keller Williams

The current market can certainly be a challenge. It is a challenge to stay positive in the face of so much negativity:

                           For example, I am at an Open House and the people come in and ask,

                           "why are you holding this home open? no one is buying in this market"

Gee, thanks for stopping by today, I was looking forward to your visit. Hey, they can think what they want, but why stop in to tell me their unasked for opinion.

Many agents are also adding to the negativity factor. If all you want to do is whine, consider getting out of the business.

Also, I have been conducting an experiment, I ask AGENTS, why should someone buy a house today? You'd be amazed how many cannot give me one reason.

Thanks for listening to my rant.

Jim

Hey Jim, it really is mind over matter. There are still houses selling and people buying, so go out and get your piece of the pie while the Negative Nellys stay home and complain.

Jim,

We continue to work on having a positive attitude toward the market. Having 11 team members helps as we can help each other stay up. We know the market will turn eventually.

We are having a difficult time getting our buyers off of the fence. They are really taking in the doom & gloom from the media.
