Well the market isn’t getting much better – despite the spin coming from the NWMLS. Yes, pending home sales are up and inventory levels are down. Both are indicators that the market is headed in the right direction. There is still downward pressure on pricing however coming from the ever-steady stream of short-sales and bank owned properties hitting the market. And with real unemployment up around 20% nationwide (according to Yahoo Finance) things aren’t going to turn around anytime soon. We see the market staying flat through 2010 and into 2011.
So why are we excited at EZdigs? We’re coming off our best year ever in 2009. Our top agent closed 27 transaction sides and we increased our gross transaction volume company wide by 50% in 2009. We’re capitalizing on this momentum by expanding our short sale listing services. We are in the process of developing a short sale class and should have our first class ready by the end of February. If you have questions on short sales prior to that – shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
New homes continue to be a significant part of our business at EZdigs. We have several new home purchases currently in our pipeline and will continue to assist buyers in this important market segment. Why are we bullish on new construction? 3 reasons; Price, Price, Price! The builders who have survived have sold through their standing inventory by slashing prices to compete w/resale homes. Now we are seeing these same builders bringing homes to market on land that they’ve picked up from banks for pennies on the dollar. This means low, low, low prices on brand new finished homes! Only a handful of our local builders are in a position to pull this off however so contact us before you make a move – if you want a copy of the list just shoot an email to email@example.com w/the subject line Builder List.
Market share – we’re expanding. We are continuing to add agents to meet the demand of our growing customer base. We’re not going to become a giant overnight – in fact being the biggest isn’t really our thing. We want to be the best at what we do – providing outstanding customer service by knowledgeable agents at the lowest cost to our clients. You see, we dig saving money. Our clients dig it too – and that’s why they keep referring their friends. If you’d like to find out how we can save you money on your home sale and/or purchase, well by now you know what to do, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll set up a time to discuss the details.
