One of the things about real estate is that you have to sell, whether the market is favorable or not. Sell, sell, sell. You have to call agents and tell them about your listings. You have to make certain your listings reflect the current market value. You have to educate and protect your clients. And you have to weed out of your clients' minds the biased rubbish of the media.
I have finally lost all interest in the 2008 presidential elections. One guy scares, one guy worries me, and the current guy disappoints me. I suspect that we can trust Obama to do things that will reduce the profit ordinary folk can count on from buying and selling real estate. It would't suprise me if McCain did something less painful along the same lines.
Neither candidate seems to have a passion for seeing the free market capitalist system live and breathe and cycle through its processes. We as a nation once believed that God would bless our good, honest efforts and provide for us. Today, it seems that many Americans believe that we shall not win but by the invasive heavy hand of government. Bail it out, buy it up, infuse it, nationalize everything and we'll all be better off?
Ever tasted government cheese?
Ever waited forever in line at the DPS, DMV, or Tax Office?
Every been frustrated because you did your taxes on a FORM 1040-EZ and the IRS said you had to use FORM 1040ES instead?
Every noticed how you had jolly well better pay the IRS on time, but they'll lolligag around about getting your refund to you?
Ever hear the phrase, "Close enough for Government work." And yet no one ever says, "Close enough for an independent small businessman."
Now, vote for whomever your mind and conscience lead you to support, but please do not allow evil forces to slip into your mind the foolishness that either Republican or Democratic governemnt will solve problems, improve quality of life, or make good moral decisions.
The Federal Governemnt should protect the innocent, build roads, and fight wars against our enemies.
