Landon Huffer- Texarkana Real Estate Broker

Looking for the light | August 26, 2009

When are we going to be out of this “recession”?  I am ready for the end.  As of right now I still cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Somehow we have to get the unemployment rate down, stocks up, banks to start lending, commercial property values to stop dropping, sellers to realize they cannot get what they want for their property, buyers to stop submitting offensively low offers, and on and on.  I wish I had an answer.  I wish anyone had an answer.  I see the government trying to fix it, but every time they try a new tax credit or incentive our market stays the same or sometimes eve gets worse.  I’m curious to see how we are going to make it out of this slow time.

One thing I am thankful for is that my area has not been hit near as hard as the majority of the country has.  Texarkana continues to have a strong economy.  You see our restraunts and shopping centers full.  Our road construction is moving right along making us look like a big city.  We have several industries that are thriving and doing good.  Texarkana has a promising outlook for the future.  Our home values have not dropped much at all.  People are still buying and people are still selling. 

Even though my business is slower than it has been, I am still surviving.  I’m having to learn to cut back in my personal life and career.  I think before spending.  Before running this ad or that ad.  In a way I feel this “recession” has benefited me.  I am A lot more aware of my money and how to spend it.

I’m looking forward to getting this slow time put behind me, start with my new outlook on money, and get back to producing large numbers.
