Let's Use The Power of AR To Get This Economy Going! Give Us YOUR Ideas About What We Can Do!

I believe that it is time for all of us to begin fighting back! Yes, we must fight for our jobs, our careers, our industry. We can no longer just sit and wait for better days. I would like to challenge everyone who reads this post to give us ONE idea that we all can use to spread the word to the general public that is really not as bad as it looks, help us get our economy back on track.

Can you think of something positive to do? to say? to write? and to publish?Can we all start printing newsletters with ONLY POSITIVE NEWS? I challenge EVERYONE to speak only good news about our real estate market for one week. ONE WEEK ONLY! I think that we could not only influence our audience, weather it be our family, friends, colleagues, and obviously home buyers and home sellers, but more important than that, we will start believing it ourselves! There are good news out there! Get out there on the streets, and chat about the good stuff with everybody who listens! Nobody in the press points this out, but here is a short list of what is GOOD RIGHT NOW:

See some examples right here, take some ideas from there, find out more about them and give that information to others. Let's launch a strong COUNTER ATTACK! We must spread positive news, like if our Professional lives depended on it, because it does! This information is not only for Realtors, but everybody who's business is hurting, the contagious fear fueled by news of a recession prevents people who can spend some money from doing anything. If they stop going out for dinner, the restaurant lays of a worker who now has no job and might loose his house and that will be one more listing that the bank will have to deal with. That ONE house will be added to the inventory of homes for sale in your city. Multiply this dozens of times in your county and 100's in your state and you can see how it affects everybody.

How Much has this Market changed You? What Are You Doing Different? I challenge you to put on your thinking hat and tell us; What are you doing to help yourself? ourselves? our economy? Is there anything YOU, as an individual would like us to do? C'mon, you can think of at least one! We would love to hear it!
