We talk a lot about the shifting market and how you can help your buyers and sellers navigate it. That got us wondering: How have you shifted with the market? What are you doing to make adjustments to “business as usual” so that you can keep moving forward and building your business? From personal financial decisions to lead gen and more, suffice it to say, you had thoughts.
Maybe you’re cutting costs or ramping up your marketing. Maybe you’re sleeping less and worrying more. Maybe you’re catching your breath after the last couple of years and taking a long-delayed vacation. Whether personal or professional, coping or flourishing, we wanted to know what’s going on with you as the market shifts.
Here’s what you had to say:
- Focusing back on buyers and loan programs
- We have made significant financial decisions. Become less dependent on borrowed money. Circle back to the similar prior market and reinvent the updated solutions to last. Transition to a structured model as opposed to the traditional “Buyers Agent” which does not have enough inventory to sell. It’s 40-year investment that has kept us alive to survive.
- I adjust my lead gen to the market. I am moving my focus to buyers at the moment. A qualified buyer who is ready to move is a valuable asset right now.
- I started in real estate in 2002 and worked my tail off to build my business. The last two years have been exhausting and I’m welcoming this slowdown. I’m delaying the purchase of a new vehicle and am staying very focused on my relationships – keeping in mind that people will still be upsizing, downsizing and investing in the new market. In short: I ain’t skeer’d!!!
