Today when I woke up it was dreary, overcast and spitting rain. Oh my, why today of all days? After all, it's Sunday and I am holding an Open House today. So be it I said, rain or shine this Open House is going to take place.
The Sellers had worked diligently to make the house ready and I worked diligently to put the signs out and to prepare the brochures. I headed out early to set everything up. As I was driving to the property the clouds parted, the rain stopped and the sun peaked through. Thank you I said as I pulled into the driveway.
I barely got all the lights on and the extra signs out front when the cars started pulling in. For two hours straight Buyers came through. Buyers mind you, not just looky lou's or nosey neighbors (OK maybe a few) but real honest to goodness Buyers. How could this be? With all the negative press out there that shouts Buyers beware here were lots of Buyers looking. Happy Buyers, qualified Buyers.
Life is good. The old saying that you attract what you think truly was working once again. In spite of the dreary weather and negative press I was holding an open house because I have faith in what I do as a professional, a Realtor. I love selling homes no matter what the forecast is, rain or shine, good or bad market. I made my own forecast and spread it among each who came through the door. It was a great Open House.
For those who think the market is bad then it is. But for those of us who think it is a great market, guess what, it is. Buyers are out there looking for someone to help them see what a great time it is to be a buyer. You can't help but feel the excitement when you are the one spreading it.
