It seems to me that once the dust starts settling, all those
foreclosures will be selling. Means new people in our towns maybe,
perhaps we can reach out to them.
It’d be nice to know who they are. Not just names and addresses, but
their demographics. Will they be first time home buyers taking
advantage of low prices or investors looking to flip? People who are
stepping up in size(might be hard to do if its contingent on selling
their own homes first)? How would jewelry purchases/services fit into
their new lifestyle? I think there’s going to be a respectable
boomlet in home buying. Which of course also means that local
realtors might be in the jewelry market once again. And the building
trades. There’s a growing pent up demand out there, it’d be wise to
be ready. Exactly how is still fuzzy.
Stuff to think about. You heard it here first. For free.
