Home sales in my area are finally up.
That’s the good news.
The bad news is that the price of homes sold is down.
Actually, that is good news.
It means that the economy is moving – free market capitalism has reset the price of homes where I live.
The reset doesn’t apply just to homes.
My wife and I went into Bloomingdales a few weeks ago to take advantage of a sale. We walked into atrium in the women’s section where the expensive handbags are displayed. In years past, we gawked at the multi-thousand dollar price tags on those bags. This year, the same brands were there, but the prices of the bags were in the low hundreds, not the thousands of dollars. No, we didn’t buy anything. It was another example of the great reset-sion.
Every high school student knows that price is a meeting of supply and demand.
So why are so many coaches raising their prices? And urging their clients to do the same? Don’t they know about the world we live in?
That’s why I’m keeping my coaching and consulting prices firm. I’d rather know that I’m helping more people at a fair rate than squeezing every last penny from them.
In the past week, I’ve been able to help several people who have generously written:
“Dan’s coaching helped me get a reality check on what works in today’s marketplace. I now have a more realistic game plan.”

What do I do in my coaching? I like to think of it as ABCD.
Accountability – some people don’t get anything done unless they have someone to hold them accountable.
Brainstorming – I excel in outside the box thinking.
Creativity – I’m off the charts on thinking different.
Decision making – No waffling around. Let’s make a plan and go for it.

I see the same thing in the Sarasota real estate market. The number of units has been on the rise for several years. Depending where you go in our very diverse market, prices are all over the place. Areas where homes typically are financed are stuck with shrt sales that are slow if the go at all. These areas are still heading down. Waterfront and the high end luxury market where people pay cash have really done well this year. Perhaps that is just another signal that we are at or near a bottom. The foreclosure overhang is a concen and we will just have to take a wait and see attitude.
