Ninety Is The New Forty Five In Real Estate

 

 

 

Listening to Jasen Edwards Sunday message he reminded us there are 93 days till the end of the year. But in Real Estate if you are planning on closing by the holidays, you don't have a full ninety days.

Want to sell your house and close before the New Year...you better be listing it right now. Want to buy a home before the end of December, you better be qualified and looking right now.

Want to reach your goals, as an agent, as a broker, as a manager,  as a lender, you better be busy out there listing, selling and qualifying right now.

 

If you are not listed pretty soon, it will be difficult to close by the end of the year.  If you are not in the process of buying, it will also be a challenge to move into your home for Thanksgiving or New Years.

In Real Estate ninety is the new forty-five?

Want to move in 2019?

Hello Margaret:   closing out one year or starting something new and fresh. Your message of "keep moving" is a good one to remember year-round.

Margaret, I love your clever post title, but the essence of your message is real.

Hi Margaret,
90 IS the new 45.  Things are costing more than ever and closings are taking longer than before.  Time is of the essence.

So true.  We have to think in 60 to 90 day increments in everything that we do.  Even in our goal setting.  Thanks for the message.

Hi Margaret well you had me at the title.  Short and to the point! Spot on.

I acannot wrap my head around the idea that we have a mere 93 days left in this year.  This will be a year that seems to have flown by, warp speed.

Good morning Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland - even years ago I remember trying to close on a home before the end of the year.  October was already panic time.
