Given all the bad press lately on the National scene as well as local numbers for the Florida Housing markets still showing declining numbers, it is little wonder that many Realtor’s in the Tampa Bay area have decided to move on to other ventures , some have had to take paying jobs in other industries and many have forgone renewing their licenses.
If sales projections weren’t bad enough for our local markets, last week we got the double whammy of two major reports indicating home prices plummeting and then the report from Realty Trac on the increase in Foreclosures going up.
Well the video clip below is worth watching. In some ways it epitomizes how many of us in the industry feel. This crazy man with a death wish has many of us thinking that we may be in the same category. But then again if you look at this from an optimistic point of view – things get really interesting.
Watch this then read my continuing comments below.
Ok, so what were your thoughts ?
This guy is one crazy dude with a death wish ?
The comparison to those that work in the Real Estate industry during these trying times is very interesting. This guys is for sure an adrenaline junkie, but one who goes to extreme lengths to ensure that his down hill need for speed is tempered with some fairly advanced preparations.
As a Realtor you need to focus on what you need to achieve success, despite the horrendous obstacles. You need to plan your days in advance, and account for your every next move. If you don’t you could risk major injury to your self esteem or your financial livelihood. Which means you crash and burn…. but maybe live another day.
If this skier makes one wrong move or hits one mogul he did not account for, he may end up seriously injured or even worse….dead.
So given the extremes it’s really not that bad now is it ?
If you thought this was another ho hum Monday in a really bad market, I hope this gives you some courage to buck the trend.
Tell yourself “your OK” and get out there and make it happen this week.
