Sales Board = Snapshot of Local Activity

SalesboardFebBy now you’ve surely read some piece of good news regarding the uptick in US housing market. While this is great news for homeowners and the nations economy at large, I’ve always stuck to my guns that, as in politics, all real estate is local. That said, I’m going hyper local with this blog post.

The pic above is Coldwell Banker United – Midtown’s sales board. If you can’t quite make it out, it’s full, and been full for a few days.

I took the time to count 56 rows on this board. The two center columns on the board indicate who represented the seller, and the buyer. If “OB” (outside broker) is in a rectangle, that means a REALTOR from another agency represented one of the “sides.”

Here’s what I’m getting at. Coldwell Banker – Midtown office is combusting with activity. Of the 112 possible “sides” (56 cells X’s 2 sides each), 75 of them were represented by Midtown REALTORS. Pretty good.

These are not official results as I haven’t noticed the office staff update the board in the last couple of days. Also, notice the paper taped to the bottom of the board. That’s overflow due to lack of room on the board itself. Further still, February only has 28 days. As you can plainly see, the activity at Midtown has been impressive to say the least.

The new challenge is to get all of these Feb. Pending Sales closed!

Hopefully the Downtown Columbia, SC market will continue with this awesome trend. If Feburary is any indication, the spring and early summer of 2013 may be a real estate sales boom.

Thank you!


PS: In case you’re curious, TeamF accounted for 31 sides on the board.
