That is the average number of homes that sell each and every day in this country according to the National Association of Realtors’ (NAR) latest Existing Home Sales Report.
According to the report, annualized sales now stand at 5.5 million. Divide that number by 365 (days in a year) and we can see that, on average, over 15,068 homes sell every day.
Nationwide of course.
Naysayers continue to claim that a lack of consumer confidence are keeping Americans on the fence when it comes to purchasing real estate. And that millenniums would rather rent than buy so the market as we have always known it, is eternally doomed. But I am here to say that is far from reality.
After all, over 15,000 homes sold yesterday, something close to the same amount will sell today and another slew of homes will sell tomorrow.
The question is not how many homes will sell nationwide...the question is how many homes will YOU sell? How many clients will YOU serve?
Can't find a new buyer client? 15,068 buyers are closing on homes TODAY.
Can't find a new seller client? 15,068 sellers are listing their homes for sale TODAY.
On average of course.
Real Estate is LOCAL and I am sure there are areas of the country that are not experiencing rapid sales growth. To those I say, be patient... your time is coming... and it might be just around the corner.
In the meantime, get busy doing the things R.A.R.E. agents do to build your pipeline and sales funnel.
Times are good. Take advantage of it and grab your share.
