Branch Agent Meetings February 5, 2013

Moreland Sales Meeting 2.5.2013


Whether you look at the Weather or not    This is a way cool weather site. You can add all sorts of weather stats to your graph, see the radar maps, and you can look back and see what the winter was like in say… 1967! That’s fun!


Builders – We LOVE you, dudes and dudettes!  Especially when we hear from you that ‘ALL segments of the home building industry should continue to grow in 2013.’ And I think an interesting builder observation is that the 55+ home market will be a strong demographic. I wonder where the next 55+ community might pop up around here?


Buyers take note, and sellers… we NEED you!  In livability Portland always ranks near the top of US cities. For Foreclosed homes in 2013. We’re near the bottom. That means less inventory, and boy do we need more homes for our buyers!


We’re #10, Portland’s #10!  Do you ever wonder who looks at the amazing amount of data out there and comes up with lists? Do these people live in their mom’s basement? J But I digress. Portland is ranked #10 for ‘Fastest Growing Cities’ in 2013. I think that’s a good thing based on their criteria. Check it out.
