Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.
The time for champagne and fireworks is upon us. As the year heads toward a close (clink, clink!) we can’t help but think about the future. The past couple of years haven’t been the greatest, but how else should we greet the new year other than with optimism?
“Deep inside, we’re all banking on 2022 to be a better, healthier, happier and superior-in-every-way year than the past two. We know you are, too. So, as we turn the page and ring in a new year, what are you hoping for? Are you optimistic?” we asked readers last week. Here’s what they had to say:
- The end of COVID.
- Business growth with buyer and seller, especially 22 transactions in 2022.
- That we can move past COVID impacting so many facets of life, especially travel.
- My hope is that 1/3 to 1/2 of the NAR membership will realize that they are ill-equipped to be an advocate and a fiduciary for their buyers and sellers and to get out of the business.
