Just got my annual report from my realtor -- every December we get a long report on the local real estate market and prospects for 2009 (pretty grim this year.)
Do any of you send such a letter to your clients and top prospects? I think it would be a good idea to spell out to them your thoughts on the economy and the market.
My realtor's letter pretty much guarantees that if we sell our house, we'll use our services.

I think that putting our thoughts on the economy in writing is stupid. Training clients to think that we know what we're talking about only works right up to the point that they find out that we don't know what we're talking about.

Agreed, don't put it in writing if you cannot control it or you basically are opening yourself to looking very stupid when and if you are wrong.
