Anthony: Are you ready? Are you ready for what will be the busiest summer you’ve ever seen? Now you might be thinking, “Anthony, you said that last year.” You’re right, I did, and I was right. This year is going to be worse. This year is going to be worse because the hangover of buyers and the hangover of sellers is dramatically bigger than it was last year. A lot of sellers held off because of vaccines, because of uncomfortableness enlisting, because they were worried about ending up homeless, worried they won’t be able to find a home in time, a multitude of reasons.
If you want to have a huge year– There’s a lot of you out there who are having a very late start. If you want to still have a huge year, you got to be ready to work and work hard. I know there’s many of you that say, “Oh, I’m tired. I’m upset. My buyers are tired. Buyer fatigue, realtor fatigue,” it is what it is my friends. We are in a historic time. What has happened in the last year in real estate will be in the history books, will be in history books. Lowest inventory since records have been kept, demand went dramatically up, not down. I mean, it’s just wild what’s happened, but if you want to have a huge year, you need to pre-plan, line up babysitting, line up for your children, if you have them, plan your vacation accordingly.
Last year, I said, “Cancel your vacations.” I’m not going to say that this year, because this year is going to be like last year, and we’ve dealt with it, you’ve dealt with it, you’ve got some practice. This year, you also didn’t have six weeks of sitting at home doing nothing. That was part of the reason I also said, “Cancel your vacation.” I’ll tell you, there’s going to be a tremendous amount of business to be had from right now. Really, even three weeks ago when it started getting better, demand started going down a little bit because buyers are finding homes, more people are listening, so it’s getting this much better.
If you pre-plan, if you make sure that you are in control of your time, you should be able to navigate this thing, and you should be able to have yourself the busiest and best year ever. In my 2021 market predictions that I released, I think two or three days before the new year, I said this would be the busiest year for home sales since ’05, I still feel that way. I don’t think we’ll beat ’05.
It’s kind of weird when you think about that and say, “How could he be predicting that when inventory is so low?” Well, the demand is tremendous, and properties are getting eaten up as fast as they’re coming on, and actually, faster than they’re coming on because buyers are finding sellers, and realtors are finding sellers, and a lot of sellers are choosing to list without going to the market. It is what it is. Don’t hate the game, just play in it. It is what it is, you’re not going to change the market. The change that you can have is getting more sellers to list, getting more sellers to understand that if they list their home correctly, plan things correctly, they can buy and sell without ending up homeless, because that’s the biggest fear. That’s where you can have an impact.
That’s all my friends. Just did half my run, running down the beach a couple of miles. Now I got to run back. Have a great day, everyone. I hope you’re ready.
