Today was one of those exceptional days when I was able to sit down and read some of my feeds. I was real lucky today to have one come in from Steve Harney. I also enjoy reading Steve’s email‘s because it usually applies to our market place in one way or another. He emphasizes as Realtors today we have a great opportunity in front of us, and he is so right. In our own Valley there is a mounting consumer confidence as it pertains to Real Estate. We are having great traffic in our open houses, we are getting more showings on our listings, and we are enjoying once again working with multiple offers.  Nationally, Trulia is getting more home searches; Banks are saying they are seeing activity back to the levels of the Tax Credit days. The National Association of Realtors (NAR’s) pending Home Report which reports on homes going into contract has seen an increase 5 of the last 6 months. We discussed in our office meeting a few weeks ago by looking only at the Active Single Family Detached Homes (which is the majority of homes selling in our market place) you can see those inventory levels dropping in to a 4 month supply. That folks is a normal real estate market. We truly need to keep this positive momentum going. Whenever possible, start conversations about how the market is changing for the better; talk about the market stats we reviewed in our office meetings, go over the pre-appointment slides you carry on your smart phones of John Paulson comments, Wall Street Journal comments, etc.   Create conversation about the uptick in the buyer activity, espouse the benefits of homeownership. If we don’t who will? If you are not sure of what to say or how to say it set an appointment with me, I’ll help you!

Let’s turn this market around!
