Are you still unconvinced the real estate market is getting ripe for investing?
Take a look at an eye-opening piece from The Wall Street Journal.
It’s about real estate agents and what some of them are having to do now in order to please some fussy, wearisome [tag-tec]clients[/tag-tec].
Did you ever think real estate agents would be asked to pet-sit? (Pet rats, that is).
Or drive a client home from a colonoscopy appointment?
Hand-holding like a Mom has its limits
But apparently in today’s market, more and more real estate agents are finding themselves being asked to remove goldfish from a pond before a termite treatment, or to pick up OPC (Other People’s Children) from ballet practice.
Here’s my point. The market has definitely changed. We knew that. But this gives us more proof of the shifting of the gears.
Sure, agents have always done favors for clients. I know first hand because my sister-in-law is a successful real estate agent, but it seems more agents are doing more nowadays because expectations have increased big time.
Translated: Business is slowing down. Real estate agents have more hand-holding time and some clients are taking advantage.
That means there are more opportunities for savvy real estate [tag-self]investors[/tag-self] to come in and pick and choose good properties.
