A Quick Minute of Motivation

In this new motivational series, I’ll highlight how to become a Peak Performer.

In today’s Peak Performer Series message I’d like to talk to you about storytelling. We all have a story to tell – one that let’s everyone know what makes us different than other agents. Do you just list out the things that make you different from others or do you have a story to tell? Learn more about the importance of storytelling in my latest Motivational Minute message.

November Market Update

18_300510_Fall Social Covers Fall Facebook Thankful

We are Grateful for You!

Now that another Halloween has come and gone, hopefully you weren’t spooked by the real estate market and the news that you have heard about it. The market is good – not bad – not slow – not great – just good. People need to expect that their house isn’t going to sell in a matter of hours or days, it will, in most cases, take a couple of weeks to a month or even longer to sell. As I’ve said before, it all depends upon your price point, condition and location. All around the region, we are seeing median days on market are up as are the average days on market. Again, don’t be spooked, we continue to see steady sales, low inventory and stable prices. Buyers are just taking a bit little longer to make decisions on buying. Some are still looking for the house to be in perfect condition at a “value” price. In some cases, they too, need to be realistic. Not every house is perfect and not every house is value priced so, just make an offer and see how the seller responds. If there is a house for sale, the sellers want it sold and they just want to “hear” it from the market and not the agent in a lot of cases.

So, what is on the horizon? Interest rates will continue to rise which will cause some buyers to leave the market. Some will opt for alternative forms of financing such as adjustable rate mortgages or if you have an assumable loan – assumptions. If you are interested in buying, this is a great option as well. Please give me a call to learn more whether you are selling or buying.

What else could impact our area you ask? Amazon and their HQ2 is the answer! At this time, they are in advanced negotiations with Northern Virginia on their next headquarter location, Crystal City to be more precise. What does this mean for our region? There will be some impact on housing, some impact on commercial properties (depending upon their location), a definite impact on our economy and lastly, an
impact on traffic as 50,000 jobs (or 25,000 if they split the locations) plus supporting company employment will bring more commuters. The local real estate industry is excited about this potential move, but we are not counting on anything concrete until the final decision is made. If you would like to know more, please feel free to call me as I have been following this developing news quite extensively. Also, I am happy to discuss your next move at any time.

Have a great Thanksgiving and enjoy the time with your family and friends!

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.

Now, go sell something!
