The first time buyer is being treated as an outcast when they should be coddled in and brought closer into the American dream which is the American way...Investors will buy if they can make money and the middle class will participate if they have a job by settling down...I know one thing. Motivation and want too...starts from the top. Leadership has to inspire

Rob, We will have to wait and see. I know many people I have talked to liked the outcome of the elections.

Michelle, We were hoping that would be the case but it didn't happen.

Diana, Ours started slowing down in September and is about the same now. I did think after the elections we would see a surge. Didn't happen.

Business slowed down a few weeks before the election.  Once the election was over things heated up again in the DC market.

I can't speak for anyone but myself, however, I noticed that just prior to the elections my business slowed down with buyer/clients.  Since the election it has continued to stay quiet ... or at least more quiet than I remember last year at this time. I believe it's because as much as the media has tried to convince consumers that the market is strong, that buyers (and sellers) are fearful of their future ... and unsure of investing into anything right now. They are honkering down and holding on to their money.

Richie, We have to create a feeling of safety and that means for buyers that they will not get burned by further loss of job or cutbacks and more rising health costs. Our Leadership needs to get busy working on the American Dream.

Smart home buyers will take advantage of the current very low mortgage interest rates.

I don't think it makes a difference in my rural market. I was busy before the election and I'm still busy.

People buy homes - election or no elections! Just my two cents, Debbie.

I can't say I have seen any change since the elections are over. We are still behind where we ought to be.
