AGBeat Flash Poll – your sentiments on the real estate industry

Flash poll – it’s all about you

One of the major benefits of running a national publication is the unique bird’s eye perspective we get on so many topics, but we find that sentiment is different from city to city and sector to sector. A listing agent in San Diego has a far different perspective than a Detroit REO agent, while a Miami property manager will have a different take on real estate than an Idaho investor.

Some areas are extremely optimistic, others pessimistic, and some have hope for the future while others are frustrated at taking second and third jobs, mostly in secret. The economy has put a massive hamper on the real estate sector, most notably the residential real estate sector, and although there are hot spots across the nation (like Washington DC and San Diego), it certainly isn’t 2004 anymore, we can all agree on that.

Lending has been tightened which is a major challenge, and most agents aren’t doing exactly the same thing they were just 24 months ago, with some shifting to leasing and others completely redesigning their business model.

The AGBeat Flash Poll below seeks to study your sentiment. We’ll be comparing different regions’ and sectors’ attitudes on local and national real estate and are looking closely at when industry insiders believe a recovery is coming because even among top economists that are dedicated to pouring over real estate data every day don’t agree.

Poll results will be analyzed and published in July and will be linked to here in this story. We thank you for taking the time to answer all questions openly and honestly and assure you we respect your privacy if you don’t wish to leave your name- we are not tracking IP addresses for this poll in an effort to get the most honest feedback possible.

    I would have added (in the more/less time questions) short sale listing presentations.

    When you close enough Short Sales you no longer go on "Short Sale listing presentations". People will call you for your expertise. ;). Probably two questions could have been are you seeing More or less ….. Short sales, foreclosures, equity sellers etc.
