WHY AREN'T THEY READY TO BUY NOW?

Boy…don’t you wish that you could push a button and program your prospects to buy now? I sure do because the market here in Naples, Florida seems stuck in those summer doldrums, even though I was talking with a friend this afternoon in New England and he told me it was 51 degrees there. (One tends to forget that when you live in paradise, it’s summer all the time!)
I have a feeling the more that the press uses the R word (recession), the more the real estate market across the country is going to stay stuck in the quagmire that we have been in for a while…actually it is beginning to seem like forever. Although I can’t worry about what is going on in the rest of the country, I feel for my fellow realtors, because it certainly is a mess! (And here we used to tell prospects and clients that Naples is a world-class destination, which it is, and we were pretty much insulated from what goes on in the rest of the country. Yeah right…Great pitch, but wrong!!!
I guess that we will just have to weather the storm and those who can’t stick it out will be returning to their jobs before the “gold rush”, or should I say land rush. Maybe that in itself isn’t so bad because we will flush out some of the pretenders or those that never should have been allowed real estate licenses, and Lord knows there are more than a few of them around So it’s back to bartending and cocktail waitressing, but not to worry, I’m a great tipper!
