Wow - What a Roller Coaster Ride

Wow what a roller coaster ride it has been for Buyers, Sellers and Agents who simple cannot understand why the federal government has gone off the deep end and is crippling our nation.

But is that only a small piece of the problem – I believe so. Market values in a few places have increased a somewhat over the past few years and then dropped down again, there was often a remaining net gain. However, if someone saw their home rise 20% in value and then drop 10%, they see themselves as having lost money rather than having gained 10% in value. That negative-focused thinking can, and often will, discourage a person from establishing a realistic listing/sale price.

So why isn't my house selling – The Reality of this issues is because of unrealistic expectations on the parts of sellers and agents alike. We are still trying to establish a market norm and anyone out there “trying” for a price that the market simply will not support is wasting the Prospective Buyers time as well as that of their Listing Agent. The truth is never easy to swallow. Fortunately many who really did want to sell, but who perhaps were not ready to accept the realities of the market, will now reconsider creating a listing price that is palatable to the market in their area.

More so then any time in our history the public needs an educated real estate professional, it is now. There are far too many people parading themselves as Realtors®, yet have not stepped up to the plate relative to enhancing skills and knowledge to be the kind of resource the consumer wants and demands. We are at a pivotal point in the history of our industry. Many will leave the business, and many already have and that is ok. For knowledgeable and professional Realtors® embrace the National Association of Realtors Code of Ethics. Below is a portion of our preamble:

“Under all is the land. Upon its wise utilization and widely allocated ownership depend the survival and growth of free institutions and our civilization.”

“In recognition and appreciation of their obligation to clients, customers, the public and each other, REALTORS® continuously strive to become and remain informed on issues affecting real estate and, as knowledgeable professionals, they willing share the fruits of their experience and study with others.”

Engage the services of a professional Realtor in your area – you’ll be glad you did!
