2020 has presented more than its share of challenges for our industry, our country, and our families. While we in the mortgage and real estate industries have had recorded setting years, many people that surround us have set the kinds of records nobody wanted to achieve. Unemployment, business closings, and shutdowns have taken a serious toll.  None of the volume or unit records in mortgage and real estate stands alone. The markets led the way with declining rates the desire for homeownership pressured the entry level market, the virus made us all take a look at our housing situation in a completely different light. For the first time the housing market wasn’t all about “Location, Location, Location!” The market has become all about “Function, Function, Function!” We need to be sure we are aware of the things we can do to help as well as prepare ourselves for the coming…

The election last week has created a number of issues and challenges for the housing and mortgage market. The additional information about a vaccine that is 90%+ effective against COVID-19 has also created a good deal of activity. The important things about these developments are to remain focused on the facts at hand and not what may or may not happen. I have already had clients talk to me about questions they are getting about a $15,000 homebuyer credit or incentive to buy a house. Apparently Joe Biden made a statement about something along those lines and the internet has run with it. Unfortunately, the internet doesn’t do a great job reminding people that Joe Biden isn’t president; no such thing has been detailed out or approved, so there is nothing to talk about except it may or may not happen, if and when it does, the details will make…

This is the last installment of this year’s business planning process. Looking back over these five posts in October and revisiting the Business Planning module on the IMT Coaching website should make it simple to create your plan, systems, and schedule to make it all happen. The one special reminder of this year is to be sure you weigh out your numbers to match your business and your markets. Nationally speaking, purchase business is up more than 20% while refinances are up better than 80% over 2019. It’s important to look hard at your numbers AND your local market to see how that plays out. To be sure we are not likely to see a 1% drop in interest rates in 2021 that we saw in 2020. While I don’t see a dramatic rise in rates in the first part of 2021, I also don’t see rates rushing higher either. However, many…

The last installment of business planning includes some direction and a few observations. Each of us has to understand what it is we are trying to accomplish in our business as well as the path we take, the hours we invest, and the people we choose to surround ourselves with. The choice is always as simple as proactive vs reactive; transactional vs relational. You get to make these choices and to try and live in the middle is doomed to failure. My favored choice is for my clients to live in the world of proactive-relational business because I feel it holds the most security and longevity. It’s not that you can’t make a living being a reactive transactionalist, but why would you?  The choices as to what you would like to accomplish have to hold meaning for you personally, but also possess significant standards based on the quality and quantity…
