What John Wayne Would Say About The Real Estate Market Today
After watching a late night replay of a western film, I had to wonder what John Wayne would say about the real estate market today.
John Wayne was one of the best known actors from the 1940s through the 1970s, and he usually starred as a rugged macho type who was calm under pressure.
If "the Duke" was here combating the real estate market today, I think he would have a few choice words of advice for those of us who must contend with the problems of short sales, foreclosures, and bank owned properties in Tallahassee.
John Wayne On The Real Estate Market Today
If you have to sell a home, you must understand that values are still declining. You can either choose to wait out the market for many, many years to get more money, or you can just bite the bullet and sell your home today.
Get off your horse and drink your milk. - John Wayne (on doing what needs to be done)
Too often, home sellers want to try an unrealistic price, and it just does not work. I try to get them to understand that when it comes to value, it "is what it is." We cannot hope a buyer will pay more, it just doesn't work.

The market will recover, and whether you are in your current home or your next one, it will be more valuable than it is in the real estate market today. The key is being courageous enough to make the move.
