A Realtor’s® Observations on the Last 30 Days in United States

July 6, 2009

Residential

As I had time to reflect over the holiday weekend, I thought back to all that happened in the month of June.

My Personal Market Activity

Roses...not rose-colored glasses

Roses...not rose-colored glasses

Buyers re-engaged in the marketplace, resulting in sold properties. Sellers who want to sell are listing at prices to sell, not just to list. Communication between the Realtors®, lenders, buyers, sellers and attorneys is key in keeping the deals together and getting them closed.

I have received negative comments in response to my positive outlook on the market?the first signs we are seeing of stabilization from the numbers that are being published. I have run into agents I know who are amazed when I say I am busy. They are thinking of getting out of the business. I am not, ?wearing rose colored glasses? as commented on one of my blog postings. Rather than walk away in frustration, I decided I have to continually educate myself to the dynamics of the ever changing market. Learn from my most current experiences. Most importantly, work to solve the problems that arise from each of the challenges that come with every transaction.

Americans deserve the opportunity to achieve and sustain the American dream of homeownership. It is still recognized as one of their most important assets. I am a Realtor®. This is what I do.
