If you were warned that a downturn in your industry could soon put you out of your job, you’d do something about it – right?
If you’re a real estate agent and your answer to that question was ‘yes’, you’ll definitely want to read what three professionals have had to say about how they envisage the future of the property industry.
It’s been no secret that the last five years have been unrelenting ones for the Aussie property market with prices soaring to never before seen figures. But now the bull market has ended, according Century 21 chairman Charles Tarbey, ‘people are no longer standing up and throwing money at you.’
Real Estate Buyers Association president Rich Harvey recently said that real estate agents should expect to find it much tougher to make ends meet now the Australian property boom is drawing to a close.
Malcolm Gunning, president of the Real Estate Institute of Australia, echoed Harvey’s sentiments saying that agents will be the ones who bear the brunt of the long-overdue downturn going as far as predicting that up to 25 per cent of agents could soon find themselves jobless.
The reality is that the property market isn’t always able to make everyone happy, with buyers wanting the lowest possible price, sellers wanting the highest, and agents just wanting to make the sale. But when three prominent professionals in the real estate industry are quoted warning of the dark times ahead, you should probably pay attention.
Should you choose to heed their caution, reading between the lines will tell you that agents need to change their approach and try something new to really succeed in the current environment, with older marketing strategies become irrelevant and the property market no longer offering handouts.
As obtaining listings and selling property becomes increasingly more difficult, agents need to grow with and adapt to their ever-changing industry. Luckily for you, Twillis was created to help with exactly that, and is a great way to get ahead of the rest of the game and stay there.
