It's time to reset

Tomorrow begins 2013, a new year with new challenges and new opportunities, yes opportunities. I simply cannot help myself but I am optimistic about 2013 because of one thing, our country has finally begun to realize that a recovery in real estate is a recovery for everything. We won’t be leading from behind this year, we will be in front of whatever recovery we have, and I believe you can take that to the bank!

Tomorrow begins 2013, a new year with new challenges and new opportunities, yes opportunities. I simply cannot help myself but I am optimistic about 2013 because of one thing, our country has finally begun to realize that a recovery in real estate is a recovery for everything. We won’t be leading from behind this year, we will be in front of whatever recovery we have, and I believe you can take that to the bank!

Money policy, inflation, demand, interest rates, inventory levels, and prices will fuel a more consistent and increasing demand for real estate. I don’t believe it is a question of if it will happen, but how strong it will be. The Texas market is over depressed due to economic and political reasons because of our conservative nature. We cannot help it, however, as impossible as it may seem, our lone star will become even more valuable in the coming year and with that so will our prosperity and opportunity as it relates to selling Texas. The simple fact is that we will see a lot more money pouring into Texas as the backlash of taxes and over regulation takes their toll on past economically successful states. This will translate into more capital and more opportunity for us, and I am OK with that.

Texans don’t like uncertainty and we’ve had way too much over the last four years. Going forward that won’t completely change, but what will occur is a more robust and recognizable recovery that the majority of people will accept and act on. The bottom line is that there will be more buyers in the market; there will be more buyers in 2013.

It is time to reset!

Let’s not go “all in” but let’s do put some bait in the water, sooner as opposed to later. And, let’s also realize that buyers will still be looking for the “deal makers”, brokers and agents who know how to put sales together and know how to get offers that are realistic and closeable. Your knowledge and ability will pay some dividends in 2013, and, isn’t it about time?

Good luck and good selling.
