Be Ready for the Millennials or Be Ready to Find a New Line of Work

“Shoot low boys, they’re ridin’ Shetlands.” — Lewis Grizzard

Interesting quote, huh? And kind of funny, too, when you picture a bunch of big, burly cowboys coming over the hill bumbling along on little horses.

Of course, the message is pretty simple: sometimes you have to adjust your strategy to win. And one group you’ll need to adjust for is coming over the proverbial hill: millennials — those born between 1981 and 1997. And yes, they’re riding Shetlands. Put more simply: they’re different.

“If you live in the river, you should make friends with the crocodile.” — Proverb

I love that quote, but let me adapt it for you, the Realtor: “If you work in real estate, you should make friends with change!”

And of course the change everyone is talking about these days is interest rates. It happened — and no big surprise. As expected, for only the second time since the Great Recession, the Federal Reserve opted to raise interest rates one-quarter of a point. And I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if we see more rate increases during 2017. Many economists agree and predict mortgage rates will keep climbing.

In fact, Lawrence Yun, the chief economist for the National Association of Realtors (NAR), expects rates for conforming loans to hit 4.5% by the end of 2017 and says that jumbo loans should be roughly in line with the conforming rates. … Read the rest
