One of the best parts of my job is reading emails from real estate shooters from all over the world. It’s always so interesting to read about the sort of issues/concerns that people are grappling with, as well as the great success stories that people share with me. While the particulars related to these stories will often vary based on location and experience levels, one of the constants that I’ve seen in our community is that it seems that a majority of us have slow-downs throughout the year; particularly at the end of the year (i.e., November through January).
I’m bringing this up because most folks start getting their first sense of a slow-down about this time of year. For me, it seems that my slow-down is starting earlier this year, which isn’t a bad thing as I’m so consumed with finalizing the fast-approaching PFRE Conference in Las Vegas in just a few weeks.
Anyway, in thinking about this topic, I started wondering how folks occupy their time--either through an unexpected downtime and in particular, the seemingly annual 2-3 month slow-down that is coming up shortly. So, I think the easiest and most efficient way to get as much feedback as possible is to ask it in a poll. I hope you’ll take a few seconds to go through the selections (you’ll be able to click up to three choices).
As always, please use the comments section below if you’d like to add a personal story/anecdote as to how you fill your time at this time of year. It might be helpful to others in our community.
