This is a post that I did on another blog. Look at some of the comments from other agents.

Please remind your buyers and sellers that if they are not in a personal recession, it is okay to live out their dreams of buying and selling. Buying a home and selling a home is a right that we as real estate professionals don’t want to take away from our clients.

Now when I am asked, even on my weekly radio show, how the market is, I simply say that there are plenty of people who have the courage to pursue their dreams out there and they are making it happen for themselves. And I add, that I don’t really know too many people who have panicked and torn up their credit cards that have high interest rates, nor do I know that many people that are making less money than they did 10 years ago.

We are creating the reality when clients ask us about the market. We need to be careful not to talk ourselves and them into fear and thus no action.


Hi Rhonda,

Funny, but I never thought about it that way. Good perspective, I’ll need to rememer that.

We were talking just the other day that we are seeing so many mixed signals out there. Just today my clients were one of 4 multiple offers on a property, the same thing happened last week with others.

Rhonda you’re right! Perception is reality and is consumers see us down in the dumps, they will follow suit. Conversely, if we maintain that the glass is half full there are plenty who will follow our lead!

Rhonda people are buying and selling houses everyday, and as far as I am concerned the best time to buy a house is always today 🙂
