Each week we post a few random thoughts that came up in our weekly business and conversation. Please share what you are thinking in response to our thoughts in a comment below. Or please share your own random thought as well !
1. Website traffic - Even though the activity is slower this time of year, we have noticed that our website traffic on The Somers Team has been high. This is an indicator of the pent-up demand that is building for the spring market as buyers are starting to think about buying a house next year.
2. Success - For every little success that I have I feel guilty for those that are in more need, especially this time of year. There are a lot of folks struggling out there with the recession and unemployment being high. I feel burden in my heart and have not found a solution to make it okay. It is not like we are overly successful dripping in luxury and it is not like we have not had our down moments as well as life can be hard, but would just like to see others do well and be happy. I hope that 2010 is a strong bounce back year for many Americans.
3. Interest Rates - Interest rates are at lifetime lows. I like the term lifetime over historical as I really believe the current rates will be the lowest a buyer will see in her lifetime.
4. Health Care- What I have read in terms of how those votes were procured to get to that critical 60 vote mark makes my stoumach churn.
