Robbie’s Real Estate Trends: For Times Like These

You may remember the old Motown song, “Ball of Confusion,” by The Temptations. It really summed up the bewilderment so many Americans were feeling when it was released in 1970.

Today, one could argue, we continue to live in turbulent times. Americans are smack dab in the middle of an election year that’s brought on a surge of ambiguity and uncertainty regarding candidates.

With recent announcements about the Fed raising interest rates, mounting fears over Wall Street and economic instability, mistrust of mainstream media, serious environmental concerns and the list goes on – we truly live in “interesting” times. The disappearance of some airlines and mergers of others has transformed the market, resulting in higher fares for most travelers, and much higher profits for United, Southwest, American/US Airways, and Delta, all in the face of falling fuel prices. People from every walk of life seem riddled with doubt about so much right now.

When confusion reigns, experience can calm waters and pay dividends. And when it comes to the housing market, a seasoned agent can make all the difference in real estate success. Whether you’re a buyer or a seller, a quality agent acts as your personal consultant, bringing a bank of knowledge to the table.

From planning and marketing expertise to critical thinking, problem solving, appropriately evaluating properties, negotiating the best terms of purchase or sale and more. The fact is that experienced agents can bring a significant cache of resources to work on your behalf. They also help eliminate uncertainty and paint accurate pictures for their clients.

Real estate transactions involve potentially the largest single financial investment most people will ever make. Don’t underestimate the critical value of finding the right professional to advise you – particularly in times like these.
