The REAL SCOOP In Real Estate, A Scary Reality In Our Country
I’m done with the fluff writing, it’s a waste of my time and yours. Home décor and decorating ideas? You can look that crap up on Pinterest. Do you need me to tell you that now is a good time to sell your home? No… in the craziness we live in right now, you can list your home or land at any time and sell with any Joe Shmoe agent and you’re going to sell. As long it’s not astronomically over-priced, you will sell, with little marketing effort. You can even do it yourself on Zillow! Does it seem weird that I’m saying that? I wouldn’t advise it though. Listing your property with a realtor will save you time and a headache in the long-run for many reasons.
I’m not going to lie… I LOVE that my job has become year-round active. It used to be that in mid-October sales would skid to an almost halt and wouldn’t really pick up again until April. We are currently in a vortex market I would say, and things aren’t slowing. I don’t want to get all political with you, but the real estate market is politically driven. People are scared. They are freaking out, because they don’t trust our government and in the unsettling world we live in right now, they want a place to flee. That’s scary, because that’s reality!
I’m Montana born and raised. I truly believe that we live in one of the last best places. It’s easy for me to not watch the news and live in my own little ignorant world. It’s bliss, I’m telling you. Every time I watch or read the news, my blood pressure rises and it’s just not worth listening to. Things I cannot change are not worth getting worked up over. If something major happens I’m going to hear about it from my kids, their lives revolve around TikTok… Yeah, I know… We live in a culture where our kids hear all their news and “facts” from TikTok. I always tell them, “TikTok is making you dumber!” It’s actually worrisome! The media censors the truth, and they want you to know, only, what is going to drive them higher ratings. That’s what we live now and that’s our future…
Real estate tells a story of where we are as a country and as a culture. I can’t escape it, my job revolves around the issues currently happening in America. So I’m changing things up in my blog and in my newsletter. I’m going to keep you informed on what I see and what I hear from my clients, because I listen to what they are telling me. I’m going to let you know what’s going on in the REAL, real estate market. They won’t all be popular topics, but they will be REAL. This is who I am and I’m REAL. I believe in God and I don’t put my faith in one man or a government. My family is my first priority and I stand for America. And unless I’m shutting the world out and living my sweet Montana bliss, there is NOTHING American going on currently, in our country. I don’t like Joe Biden and it’s not because he’s a democrat. I still think Brian Schweitzer was one of our best governors and he’s a democrat. I don’t give a rip, if you’re a democrat or republican. I don’t care if you’re black, white, brown, orange, yellow, blue or red. I don’t care if you’re gay, strait, or transgender. Or if you’re a Christian, atheist, or whatever. I love you all and I promise if we ever hang out or work together, I don’t care who you are, WE ARE GOING TO BE FRIENDS.
In a world gone crazy there’s a story to tell. I feel like no matter our beliefs or opinions or political affiliation, we should always respect our President. And I want to teach my kids to do that. But I can’t respect a President who within a couple days in office wiped out thousands and thousands of good paying jobs when we are in a crisis of country already, financially. And there’s more to come. Many of these jobs, although out of state, support many Montanan’s (People I know). But get this… NOT TO WORRY… Biden’s $2 trillion clean energy infrastructure plan, with its goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 at the latest, aims to "create millions of good-paying jobs that provide workers with the choice to join a union and bargain collectively with their employers," according to his website. Umm… yeah. I’m sure that eases your mind and makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside if you’ve been directly affected by this. Give me a break! And… I’m not opposed to the government giving out money to people who need it. They should help when needed. But to take jobs from hard working American’s is so wrong… and then just keep giving money away? What in the actual crap is happening? I’m not being mean or hateful. I’m being honest.
So, as you can see… I’m no better than anyone else in this environment of unrest and anger. And where we live, we don’t actually see the true reality. And if I don’t watch or read the news, I’m golden. That’s why people are coming here. That’s why real estate prices are sky-rocketing and the REAL Montanan can’t afford to buy real estate. (I welcome the out-of-staters. I have become very close friends with many of my out-of-state clients). I’m just saying, things have changed drastically. And to those of you who are a home/landowner in Montana, well done on your investment!
If there is any time more crucial in speaking truth, it is now. A couple years ago I wrote and published a book that spoke my very personal truth, secrets I previously had never wanted coming to light. This is not new for me, I found that writing is my outlet. You might not like what I have to say, but it will make you think. I am not a hater. My thoughts will be spoken truthfully and respectfully. I’m seeking understanding. I have four kids and there’s a variance of common sense amongst them. The lack of, scares the pee out of me! And there’s our future everyone… 😊.
This is me, “The Clueless Realtor”. I’m interested in hearing your opinions as well. I want to listen. I want to hear your thoughts whether I agree with you or not. It’s the only way we can understand each other and not co-exist in divided anger. Sending you some Montana love! It’s going to get REAL, in real estate… stay tuned.
