St George Utah Real Estate

Realtors whose frog legs are still left in the water, which are most, should be ashamed of themselves. It only takes one good look at realtor's activities outside oneself to see what is happening generally; to wake up and realize that the water temperature has been rising slowly. We are being cooked and therefore are cooking the Sellers we represent if we don't wake-up and get our prices in line with the demand. The tendency has been an actual declining market where chasing the market value price line downwards without getting your home onto that line equals less money out in the end. But don't tell anyone... this is what makes Brian Habel at RE/MAX First Realty, your St George Utah Realtor, much more likely to serve his Sellers better. Staying abreast of the market in order to protect his clients equity is what it is all about. Read ahead further for what may offset this decreasing downward trend that many a seller has been feeling.
Although, sales have been down and prices have been coming down to the tune of 1.5% depreciation per month, there is a fairly authoritative voice, for the national scene, telling us that home sales are expected to take a gradual improvement going into the end of 2007.
Lawrence Yun, the National Association of Realtors senior economist in his latest forecast has said, "Home sales will probably fluctuate in a narrow range in the short run, but gradually trend upward with improving activity by the end of the year. It's important to keep in mind that all real estate is local, and many markets are expected to have higher sales and strengthening prices during the second half of this year."
If you should ever need any help with how to go about selling your St George Utah Real Estate, don't hesitate to give us a call.

Wow, I'm a Realtor and I'm wondering why the bad press about other Realtors or the majority*

It sounds like you're the only agent out here who is helping people and actually doing a good job. You should consider getting licensed in all states to spread your gifts since the rest of us aren't in line with our pricing.

Rule number 1-10 is the seller prices their own homes and in these markets and times it's often based on lack of equity and dire situations in which they are forced to at least try to sell before the bank takes it.

We're not all evil for helping them or trying to do whatever we can to assist in the sale of their home and future of their life.

I'm glad you have it all in order there though and you're pricing all these homes well and selling them under 30 days.

Way to go!
