It appears that we are headed for a recession. How long and how deep it will be is unknown yet, but you can prepare for the recession and hit the road in full stride when the market does come back.

Real Trends magazine noted during the Great Recession that historically, even in the worst economic circumstances, 5% of households still turned over.

Life happens, and people want to buy and sell real estate in all types of situations. You have to prepare for all of those situations.

To help you be prepared, the GMAR will re-publish various media from many respected real estate sources (many of which you have free access to as a member) whenever we see them. We will publish them on our social media channels (see below for links), in our weekly Thursday newsletter, and in emails like this one.
