Will the NAR’s Recent Predictions Come True?

Today, I want to talk to you about a recent report issued by the National Association of Realtors. On a national level, they’re predicting a 1% to 3% increase in sales. I’m not sure if we’re going to experience that here in Connecticut; there’s just too much downward economic pressure to expect any appreciation. I’ll go more in-depth later in this series.

Today I want to talk to you about communication in the real estate business. First, let me take you back 20 years to when fax machines were king. As real estate agents, we had to wait for that fax to come through before a deal could be signed and ratified.

Contracts are signed on phones these days.

Fast forward to today and we’re hyper-communicators. Things happen in the blink of an eye in this day and age. Agreements are coming to us via a text, and contracts are signed on phones.

If you don’t have a tech-savvy agent or team backing you, you could easily lose out on a sale or a purchase. It’s important to understand how your agent communicates so that you don’t lose out.

If you have any questions for me, feel free to reach out and give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
