I received this email yesterday afternoon as a heads-up for today’s show (tune in to WNRN at 11 or wait for the podcast). These are some of the questions and topics we will be discussing. It should be interesting.
Â· Are you reliant on increasing sales figures(value) to be successful?
Â· Are you worried about a recession?
Â· Do we or do we not have housing surplus?
Â· Things that help/hurt the sales economy?
Â· Have lenders (bank, mortgage) gotten tighter in this area too?
Â· People say we have a strong â€˜service sector’.Â How does the low unemployment rate and many unfilled service jobs affect real estate sales and satisfaction of new residents?
Â· Many folks refer to the University as why our area will not suffer an economic recession, or at least just a minor bump if the rest of the nation suffers greatly.Â Please explain.
Â· Can’t the University (and our local businesses) suffer if students and their families have less credit and tighter overall budgets?
I’ll have to wait for the podcast since I missed the live broadcast.
We have a strong ‘service sector’ Translation: “We have a large amount of low skill low paying jobs.”
Is that something to be proud of?
How does that affect the satisfaction of new residents? Uhm, they’ve got plenty of places to spend their money and feel like kings? I don’t imagine that most “new residents” would be employees in that service sector.
How does that affect Real estate sales? How does it? I would imagine it would insure that most sales are 1) to people from outside the area relocating here, 2) people from outside the area now settled here selling their first cville homes to upgrade or otherwise change geographic location within cville, and 3) people working in the low paying ‘service sector’ aren’t buying homes in the area.
I guess I don’t “get it.”
