Needham, MA--Hello and Happy New Year!
With one of the real estate industry's most uneven years behind us, we at Kriss Law/Atlantic wanted to check in to let you know what we have in store for what we believe will be a strong 2023.
As always, we consider helping our Realtor and lender clients in building pipeline to be our number one priority. While we do expect this year to be more consistent than last--and have already seen rates tick down a bit and inventory increase slightly--helping you to achieve your goals in what is a very different market than in the recent past takes implementing revised initiatives.
With this in mind, we have taken the last several months to consider the key questions that everyone in the industry is asking: Rates have spiked, will they go down? It was a sellers' market, is it turning into a buyers' market?
While we can use the data we have to make an educated guess, no one knows exactly where the market will go. What we can do however, is easily supply an answer to a third and more important question:
Q: As a Realtor or mortgage professional, what can you do to make sure your income remains in line with what it has been over the last few years?
A: Work With Kriss Law/Atlantic for title and closing.
Like many of you, we have been a mainstay in the real estate industry for decades. In that time, we have seen the market move up and the market come down many times over. While the 2022 shift did approach more quickly than others, so many of your peers and colleagues work with us in markets like these because of our experience and approach to keeping your business consistent.
Since the change in market, many folks in the title space have disappeared during the time when their clients are especially in need of additional support. At Kriss Law/Atlantic, as we have done for many, many cycles, did the exact opposite:
-In the last year, we have tripled our weekly amount of Realtor continuing education sessions, home buyer events, and lender informational presentations;
-We have been working overtime to speak with buyers and sellers regarding contractual and conceptual changes that have arisen as a result of the market change;
-While our competitors have seriously decreased their outlays to support Realtor and lender initiatives aimed at capturing the deals that are out there, we have greatly increased our spending to further support our clients;
-In an effort to help our clients secure as many transactions as they can during this time, we have consistently lowered our fees whenever possible in hopes of making our partners extremely competitive;
-With our always robust and experienced staff in place and with volume having decreased, our service levels are at an all-time high.
Working with Kriss Law/Atlantic as your title and closing partner can and will make a difference in your business in 2023. If you would like to take advantage of any of the initiatives we have implemented in the last year, please let us know!
