Gallop Poll: What Do American's Believe is their Best Long Term Investment?

Every year, Gallup conducts a survey of Americans to determine their choice for the best long-term investment. Respondents are asked to select real estate, stocks/mutual funds, gold, savings accounts/CDs, or bonds.

For the seventh year in a row, real estate has come out on top as the best long-term investment.

Gallup explained: “Real estate remains the most favored investment to Americans, as has been the case since 2013, when the housing market was on the rebound. More than a third of Americans have named real estate as the top investment since 2016.”

This year’s results indicated 35% of Americans chose real estate, followed by stocks at 21%.

Tapping into the Aspirational Goals of Your Clients

 
Your best clients helped you a ton last year - they bought and sold homes, they told their family and friends about you, they gave you encouragement, provided referrals, and were your biggest advocates. 
 
So what did you do to help them with their goals and dreams?
 
If the answer is not nearly enough then this is your year to embrace Aspirational Marketing.  Your best clients, your A+ group, and all of your friends have aspirational goals both personally and professionally. Your mission, your passion, should be to discover what these goals are and help each of them in any way that you can.
 
Why?
 
Because when you help enough other people achieve their dreams they will help you achieve yours! It's the power of reciprocity. When you focus on helping others you in turn will be helped. 
 
Where do you start? By asking the question, try using this script:

50 Top Metro Areas Slip Into Buyer Market Status- Is Your Market Next?

 

According to a recent study by Trulia.com - "Among the 100 largest U.S. metros, conditions in 50 are now shifting in favor of buyers, a ten-fold increase from just five metros a year ago. They determined this shift by examining an average of three buyer/seller balance-of-power indicators and analyzing how they’ve changed in the last year (from January 2018 to January 2019): the share of listings with at least one price cut, the monthly median days on market, and the sales-to-list price ratio (how a home’s final selling price compares to its list price). All three have shifted in favor of buyers.

This shift also shows up in other common housing metrics. Homes sitting on the market longer, for example, can also help push up monthly measures of inventory because home shoppers can count on listings remaining active for longer, giving them more options at any given time.

The shift in favor of buyers is also happening where home values have risen the most over the past six...
