Yesterday at a company event I sang a new song that I co-wrote with Greg Traynor, one of our Regional Developers.  It is called “Sales Dance”, with apologies to Van Morrison.

Three years ago at a company event, I sang my “Short-Sale Foreclosure Blues” which highlighted the issues in the market then.  Here is a link to that performance…

However, times have changed, and sellers and buyers are experiencing something totally different.  Everyone has read about it, Realtors try to explain it to their clients, but here is a little different way of expressing what is going on out there right now…

I hope you enjoy this…and remember, this is not my day job…just a fun way to let people know what the real estate market is up to…

Here are the lyrics to both songs:

Short-Sale Foreclosure Blues

Bought at the top in 2005, Life was great, beginning to thrive, Then, whoa, things took a major dive.  Got those short-sale, foreclosure, repo blues.

Behind on my payments, market done tanked. Prices have fallen, zilch in the bank.  Went to my lender and drew a blank.  Got those short-sale foreclosure blues.

If I could have I would have paid, If I could have I would have stayed.  I’ve been Fannie’d and Freddie’d and FHA’d, I’ve been Chased, Wells Fargo’d and B of A’d.  I got those underwater, upside-down, short-sale foreclosure blues…

Sales Dance

It’s a marvelous time for a sales dance, can’t wait for the meeting of minds.  I know now the time is just right for this crazy market to climb.  Sellers are wanting more money, because hundreds want to buy.  And they have no clue what they’re in for, when the offers start to fly.

Homes are back in demand, inventory is low, You’re gonna get multiple offers, and make some dough.  Can I just have one more sales dance with you, my friend? Can I just have one more sales dance with you?

The housing market has turned, and prices are on the mend.  It’s time to sharpen your pencils, or miss out in the end.  The sellers are excited, and the buyers are quite stressed.  It’s not time to complain, just give us your highest and best.

Homes are back in demand, inventory is low, You’re gonna get multiple offers, and make some dough.  Can I just have one more sales dance with you, my friend? Can I just have one more sales dance with you?
