Lisa and Jim's Northern Nevada Real Estate Blog: Something Good Happened Yesterday At the Office ... We Were Busy!

Something Good Happened Yesterday At the Office ... We Were Busy!

Could it be that we are off to a great start?  Something good happened yesterday at the office ... we were busy!  Yep! January 2, 2009 was a busy day!

Well ... OK ... not 2005  "BUSY" ; but, busier than we have been in quite some time.  Regular people walking in the office to ask about real estate possiblities, other agents calling to set up showings of our listings, RE/MAX agents in their offices meeting buyers and sellers!  Yeah!  Real business going on! 

We definitely have a long way to go ... but this is a very good start!

Yep...I think that we'll see even more activity in the market as the Inauguration completes and the transfer of power takes place.  It's not that I think any President is going to do more than another but just the simple act of the transfer of power removes so much uncertainty that people decide to get on with their lives!!!

Lisa, January has always been a good month for me and I am hoping that 2009 will be the same.  So far it is off to a good start .......... two loans

That is a very good sign, and I am hearing it more and more for all over the place.  I think it is a good sign.  We have been hearing for a long time about all the pent up demand, and the floodgates are eventually going to burst.

I've also have seen an increase in traffice. Also it is real Buyers and Sellers not just kicking the tires.

Ron - I agree, just the change will have a good affect on everyone! 

George - January has usually been a good month for us as well, so has December although this one was definitely not!

Vicky - tell us about your blogging activity that earned buyer prospects?  That would be interesting to know.

Bob and Carol - Here's to a new trend! 

Janna - We have been thinking that buyers ad sellers have been just laying low, waiting, for the new year and the new administration.  Also, watching to see how low prices will really go! 

Denise - We agree!

After spending the past few day recovering from something, maybe the flu, I gotta say I was even busy at home!  Buyers and prospects just kept calling.  Here's to a healthy start!

Lisa, What a wonderful way to start the New Year.  January is starting off very well for me as well and I'm sure this year is going to be just wonderful :)

I got  to show the same listing THREE!!!! times today from sign calls, and I'm  showing one couple several other homes from the same sign!  One other call from a post card, and a referral for a listing from a current client!  We also put a multi-family property in escrow and wrote and offer on a single family home today!

Something is happening here!

Board calls in our office have doubled in the month of January compared to December and we're not even half way through the month yet!

Maria - At our staff meeting we had a long discussion about this... most everyone is in the same boat!  Lots of excitement and lots of activity.   Its up to all of us to keep the momentum going!
