Is it time to change the sales environment? Consumers don't want to be sold or pressured these days. Times are tight and one way to ensure your clients stay with you is to make yourself indespensible.

Average interest rates. The economy may be down, but our interest rates have never been better! Here is a chart displaying the average interest rate for 30 year fixed loans since 1991.

Joke of the week. A real estate agent walking along the beach found a bottle. When he rubbed it, lo and behold, a genie appeared. "I will grant you three wishes," announced the genie. "But since Satan still hates me, for every wish you make, your rival gets the wish as well -- only double."

The real estate agent thought about this for a while. "For my first wish, I would like ten million dollars," he announced. Instantly the genie gave him a Swiss bank account number and assured the man that $10,000,000 had been deposited. "But your rival has just received $20,000,000," the genie said.

"I've always wanted a Ferrari," the agent said. Instantly a Ferrari appeared. "But your rival has just received two Ferraris," the genie said. "And what is your last wish?"

"Well," said the salesman, "I've always wanted to donate a kidney for transplant." 

Renting REOs. A proposed bill, Neighborhood Preservation Act of 2011, is calling for banks to rent out unoccupied foreclosures while the market stabilizes. Homeowners facing foreclosure could also sign rental agreements to stay in their homes.

Coach's Corner. Dirk Zeller shows champions how to develop your pricing philosophy in this week's edition of his weekly newsletter.
