What is YOUR market like?
5 months ago

Every market is different...

Kirk's market is Austin texas...

On average, Austin has doubled its population every twenty years.

And that's great for him...but alas, many of us don't live in austin.

Or texas...the second fastest growing state in the entire country..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_population_growth_rate

My state, and the two neighboring states (i'm less than 10 miles from the borders), are all in the mid to low 40s on that list. All LOSING population.

So yep, my market is not his market.

18 of 50 states are gaining population faster than the average...great. Unless you're in one of the 32 that is below average.

Blanket statements (his or mine or anyones) are not universally valid.

Don't assume. You have to research your market.
That is not a negative statement so don't anyone read things into it.
