You know the phrase, "Can't see the forest for the trees"? It's easy to get bogged down, to lose track of what's going on, because you're in it too deep! You see jobs lost, homes foreclosed, the news drumbeating over and over about how BAD everything is.
And we're NOT trying to say everything is peaches (or strawberries if you prefer) and cream, because if you're one of the 10% unemployed... well that is pretty rough and we feel for you! We've got friends in the same boat.
BUT, sometimes things are rosier than we realize, if we just take a moment, examine what we do have to be thankful for! Take a moment, spin things 90 degrees...look up and what's there? Maybe a brilliant blue sky, just waiting for us to notice! There's promise there! An uplift of the spirit, we've just got to take the time and appreciate it!
In our personal world, we're seeing people switch jobs, even get promoted... so that's a good sign!
Homes are STILL being bought and sold, and they're not ALL foreclosed and short sales! It may not be instantaneous, throw a sign in the yard and four buyers write an offer the first day, we've got to WORK TOGETHER for it, but that's what we're here for, right?
So what's your perspective? Is it dark and crowded, or clearing and brilliantly hopeful?
So don't disbelieve everything you hear from the media, but don't blindly accept it either. Consider that negative news is THEIR business and what sells for them, but doesn't mean it's on the money for your local area or YOUR life!
You control your attitude, by who and what you choose to allow to influence you!
So you can take the media perspective, OR if you want our LOCAL perspective on OUR real estate market, and your home in particular, please give The Liz Spear Team of RE/MAX Elite a call or email! We'll be happy to help!
Give your world a spin if you need to!
