Real Estate is NOT Happy
Ever heard that saying? If Mama Ain’t Happy, Nobody’s Happy! The same is true with Real Estate. If Real Estate ain’t doin well, than nobody’s doing well.
Ok, I made that up but I firmly believe it. We have seen foreclosures hit nationwide and in some areas worse than others. We have seen the homeless population go up. We have seen businesses cutting back, and others going out of business. Restaurants are hurting, and even Yahoo finds itself letting employees go. Its a trickle down effect and it all starts with Real Estate.
There is no point in listing all of the jobs that have been cut and lost you already know. Bad news always sells, but I’m not here to help boost the negative. I’m here to let you know that Real Estate is the key to our Nations happiness and prosperity. I am here to let you know that it is time to start thinking positive and responsibly.
That means, not only invest in Real Estate but more importantly it means to safe guard your investments by not using your home like an ATM machine. When you show respect and love for your home, it will come back to honor you. When you treat it poorly, and rob it, you end up loosing it. Real Estate is an investment to be savored and respected.
Real Estate is Happy
So, if you want to see a happy productive nation, I suggest that we all get back to making Real Estate happy.
What do you think? Do you agree with my thoughts on Real Estate? Are you perhaps one of the many who refinanced your house and then lost it to foreclosure?
You will be reading and probably have read, that now is a GREAT time to buy a house since it is a Home Buyers Real Estate market.
Every bit of that is true. It is. But, if you think you want to buy and sell quickly within a year or two, then no, this is NOT the time to buy. We will be getting back to Real Estate 101 which is a time of hanging on to property and moving up in 5“7 years. That is the normal cycle of Real Estate and one of responsible home ownership.
If you are a home buyer who would like to invest time and money in a home, give me a call and lets get started finding just the right house for you. In the meantime, if you would like to look at homes for sale on your own, feel free to check out my free, no obligation search for homes for sale.
