Predictions After our National Convention

Leave a comment

Predictions for the remainder of 2011 as told to the Top 50 ERA Companies during the International Business Conference:  There will be continued negative articles coming from the news media through the first half of 2011.  The simple reason is the media mostly compares sales data month over year (i.e.: March 2010 compared to March 2011). The comparisons are artificially negative due to the first-time homeowner tax credit being in full swing.  Thus making 2011 numbers look bad, when in actuality the 2011 numbers have a stronger foundation without government incentive. All that happened was the tax credit pulled future buyers out prematurely.  Therefore, the second half of 2010 sales numbers were artificially low after the incentive ended April 28 2010.  In the second half of 2011 month over year comparisons will be very favorable due to no government incentives with a stronger base business.  In other words, July of 2010 will compare much weaker than July of 2011.  This will cause positive articles coming out of the media for the first time in years!  This will bring rising confidence and a much needed sense of urgency.  Due to positive press and rising confidence, the second half of 2011 sales are expected to significantly increase, paving the way for a real and sustainable housing recovery.

In a market in constant flux, my role is to help my clients take advantage of ever-changing opportunities while avoiding any potential pitfalls they may encounter. In pursuit of my clients' goals, it is important to me to make the distinction that I'm not a salesperson trying to convince people to buy or sell a house or a piece of land.

It is also why I take seriously my role as a professional consultant who guides clients through an often convoluted process to help them find the perfect fit for their needs. If you are interested in speaking with someone about real estate who approaches this business very seriously, and who focuses squarely on you, contact me. I offer a free, first time consultation to anyone looking for answers to questions about real estate. Let us begin there. Buying or selling real estate is an enormous investment — often the biggest you'll ever make. You require, and deserve, the best. I am here to provide the best real estate consulting services available.
