What Will You Do in 100 Days?

As of today there are only 100 days left in the year! Can you believe it? Time really flies!

100 days

So, I ask, what are you going to do push yourself to get results you want?  How many days are you going to work?  How many hours will you prospect per day?  How many people will you add to your database?  What lead generation activities are you going to undertake to set appointments?

Now is the time to work as most other agents are not.  They are either making excuses, waiting for “things” to happen, for leads to come to them and hoping the market will somehow change…  Become a go-getter, not a waiter or excuse maker. You can go get it – if you set your mind to do it.  It is your time get referrals that result in sales.

The effort you put forth now, pushing yourself out of your comfort zone will help build momentum for the last 100 days of 2018 and beyond.  Are you up for the 100 Day Challenge to grow your business?  Please let me know. I am happy to meet to discuss your plan of action or you can respond to this email letting me know what you are going to do.

August Market Update

As Summer Winds Down…

Wow, did July fly by or what? It seems like it just started and it is over already. This month we saw inventory levels stay steady – which is typical for this time of year. The biggest difference is the amount of inventory available in the resale market. We are currently down 12% from this time last year. The good news for sellers is the pace of sales is comparable to last year’s sales – resulting in a 1.9 month supply of homes versus 2.1 last year. Unfortunately, while overall home prices are up, they are not flying off the market as quickly as they did earlier this year. Therefore, patience is required in some selling situations. The buyers in today’s market are taking their time making decisions as they are not feeling compelled to write an offer on the home the first time they view it. The market dynamics have shifted, and sellers need to be aware of this, so they remain patient and not anxious. If you are thinking of selling, let’s get together to discuss your plans in more detail.

Mortgage interest rates are about a half point higher than last year, so this may also be impacting a buyer’s decision-making process. In addition, some houses have higher price tags than what they are worth resulting in some buyer hesitation on making offers as they don’t want to offend the seller. It is a complex transaction and will, in many cases, be someone’s largest asset, so taking the time and analyzing the house, the market and various options available to them can be a good thing for many people. In any of these
situations, I’d be happy to assist in helping find the best location and home
for you when deciding to make a move.
