Tomorrow, Thursday November 12th at 9:00pm look for me on HGTV's House Hunters. The last time I checked, my episode was still scheduled to air at that time. Check your local listings though to make sure. I want to thank Lisa and Doug for asking me to be part of this home search, and also for applying to be on the television show. I would not have thought to apply to be on the show myself. Since being part of this, I have been checking and House Hunters has actually already been to Orlando a few times this year. My friends at Talk.Realtor.com tell me that Orlando is pretty much at the top of the list for real estate searches.
I cannot think of a better place to be practicing real estate. Despite all the negative press you read every day, the bad times only last for a little while. I suspect we may very well be dealing with foreclosures for another three years as the banks work through their backlog. In the mean time, we are writing 3,500 contracts (not offers) a month and closing more than 2,000 transactions. The closings are what I would expect for our market, and the contracts are exceptionally strong numbers. I believe these numbers indicate a renewed demand in Orlando real estate. It is no wonder Orlando real estate searches have been so strong on Realtor.com and so many House Hunters episodes have been filmed here in The City Beautiful.
