Ain't Necessarily So



It is the beginning of December and things are supposed to be quiet at this time in the real estate industry.

The best time, according to most people, is the Spring Market.

I'm here to say that " It Ain't Necessarily So"

Totally agree, Margaret. Sounds like things are booming! It has slowed down some here  but still pretty active with plenty of buyers looking.

Have a wonderful weekend and wishing you much success for your clients!

Good morning, Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland every month must be considered a busy month and make it happen.... tammy had 2 closings yesterday and another one today.... that leaves 10 for the month of December.... I'm happy with that type of production.... and you do a great job with your offline marketing.... it's a powerful source and most don't use it.... we need to send money to make it..... but you already know that.

Good morning Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland,

I agree with you! This time of year there are buyers out..three of my listings went under contract in November and are closing in December and my buyers new construction home is ready to close too. Another one will slip to January which is fine.

LOL I told someone that the other day - I have been absolutely slammed this year so, I'm anticipating a request for showings on Christmas Eve or the day after Christmas again this year! 

Hope you have a great weekend, Margaret!

Two offers this week, a showing today, out of town clients coming to Madison MS next Friday. It's not as "slow" as some may think.
