Lethbridge Real Estate - Where is Your Realtor?

Lethbridge Real Estate - Where is Your Realtor?

 

I obtained my real estate license in 1993.  That was about 17 years ago and in that time I have seen a lot of market trends.  We had good times when listings were hard to come by and the inventory of homes for sale was so low that they were snapped up before you could even put a sign in the ground.  I have seen slow markets where there were days that not a single property in the city sold. 

 

I have watched as literally hundreds of people have jumped into the real estate business and also watched as hundreds of them have left with their tail between their legs.  Lots of these people jump into the career thinking that it is easy money, that they can do what they want when they want, that clients will be jumping all over themselves to work with them.  The reality is that real estate is more than a full time job.  It is definitely not a physically demanding job, or dangerous, or sometimes not even difficult, but it is a job that requires that you are often available 7 days a week 365 days a year and usually at the most inopportune hours of the day.

 

Those who join the profession and think that they will sell a few houses a month very easily and put thousands of dollars in their pocket are usually shocked.  I would guestimate that the average Realtor in my Province spends around $2000 to $3000 per month just to stay in business.  The Best Realtor in Lethbridge between $3000 and $5000.  This covers their office bill, advertising, signage, licensing fees, real estate board fees, etc.  So just to have this job is a $30,000 a year expense.  This is probably the reason that so many of these 'hotshots' who join up get kicked to the curb within the first couple years.

 

Where is your Realtor? 

As these people come and go from real estate, they often leave a trail of orphaned clients behind.  These are clients who had faith in them and their abilities, and had hoped they would have a Realtor.  Who takes care of these people?  Where do they go for advice and help after their Lethbridge Realtor has taken a job at Costco?  Now more than ever it is important that you choose a Realtor who has experience, a proven track record of success, and who will be there when you need them.

 

Below you will see a list of the Licensing activity for the past week.  Take a look at how many NEW real estate people joined up, and compare that to the number who are dropping out of the business and cancelling their license.  Is your Realtor on the list?  Will they be on next weeks list?


I encourage you to get an established and experienced Realtor working for you!  Give me a call.  Robert May 403.330.3039
