I'm just curious as to whether most agents think Trump will be good for realtors and the industry or bad. I'm guessing good.

Trump will guarantee a minimum of $100 per BPO; but Hillary would have raised the Fee to a princely $150 !

Another set of campaign promises now fallen by the wayside.

Good thing there's a fall back position in relying on Commissions.

Only time will tell.

If we as a nation can't come together as one then it really won't matter.

I'd say as long as government and regulations (not that I am a fan of regulations) allow lenders to offer no doc/no income mortgages or 1st/2nd mortgages with no buyer money in it, I don't see why the real estate market wouldn't continue on its typical journey of highs/lows. I'm not a fan of it myself; but, there are so many fools out there or those who believe 'someone' will take care of them, I certainly don't see the real estate market being affected in the future. What I would like is less bankruptcy/less foreclosure only for a person to be able to wait a year or two and get into trouble all over again and run the cycle again. I'm a firm believer in responsibility. Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me.

I am a Trumpster.

From a foreign client perspective, it should be good.

It seems that buyers in Asia do believe that it is a great time to invest in US real estate now. This is a good article describing the greater interest:

Survey results of Chinese about President Trump: are you more likely to buy U.S. homes/real estate now?
53%: Yes
16%: No

It will likely vary by geographical location. What concerns me in TX is that our market has been very strong. Prior to the election I had not heard much about NAFTA, good or bad. Recently it has been reported that TX probably benefited the most from it and that we stand to get hurt pretty badly if NAFTA gets repealed.

nafta is easy to hate until you look at the specifics, then the benifits become obvious. A lot of americans are going to lose their jobs when nafta goes away.

The biggest loss of factory jobs has come from robots, i guess they are the next boogy man for us to be afraid of.

That is so true. People are longing for the "good old days" of plentiful manufacturing jobs, that required no experience or education, and these jobs aren't coming back.

But you cannot deny a good number of those laborous jobs are still in China and other countries. I had gone to Kohl's department store awhile back. Ken was trying on some jeans (brand name but probably not made here anymore). Of the racks of men's clothes around me, I did not have to move even two feet and I had visited 10 different countries. The qualify of the fabrics used are dreadful, nearly see-through cloth. So, then, the next day, as everything I used (or ate) was picked up, I looked at the country of origin. BARELY, anything was made in the U.S.A. After 15 items, I gave up looking as it was disgusting. Please, tell me, how are we benefiting and where are we, as a country, benefiting?

11.5 million americans go to work everyday to make products that are exported overseas. If we shut down imports from other countries then they shut down imports from us and those 11.5 million workers no longer have jobs.

we could put those 11m people to work making products for us but are you willing to pay double for everything? You can buy all your clothes right now from american manufacturers but not in the department stores because they are too expensive for the average consumer so stores generally dont carry them.

Plus nafta has nothing to do with china.

I just read an article from the Dallas paper that says NAFTA is responsible for ten times as many jobs in Texas as the oil industry---was---responsible for. The oil bust hit us pretty hard. Who knows if the writer knows what he is talking about?---probably not. But if he is just partially correct it could be a lot of jobs.

I have high hopes that Trump will erase all of the EPA regs that were put in place. If that happens it will be drill drill drill--again.

Our coal industry was devastated as well. Some of the mines are completely shut down.

I would love to see Trump completely close down the EPA---I mean scuttle the agency completely. And while he is at it---ban Ethanol!!!!!

A client of mine owns coal mines in apalachia, he says the demise of coal is the cheap natural gas from fracking. The power companies have all switched over to cheaper gas.

cheap oil from fracking has also shut down oil wells with the glut of cheap oil. The glut of oil was created (with the help of opec) to put pressure on russia. Their main export is oil and their economy took a dive as punishment for invading ukraine. Now that we are buddies with russia the price of oil will go back up.

the keystone pipeline is canadian owned and will be built by canadians and it will carry canadian oil to boats waiting in our ports to take it overseas. All we will get out of it is the bill for cleaning it up.

the epa has been blamed for all of this as part of a coordinated campaign (by big business) to get rid of it. The epa was created when the chicago river caught fire for the second time. Everyone against the epa will change their minds when reality kicks in, unfotunately, it will be a horrible mess when that
time comes.

I realize that the EPA does have a purpose. Nobody wants toxic waste dumped into rivers.

What I am vehemently against is any protection of a reptile, animal, etc. at the expense of energy production. We are losing lives in the middle east over oil. I am all for energy independence in the U.S. if it can ever be achieved.

Then there is Ethanol. It is a proven fact that Ethanol is a financial net loss. It takes a ridiculous amount of water to produce it. It is crazy to be burning our food in a gas tank!!

The us exports 3,600,000 barrels of crude oil every month. This does not take into account the amount of gas and petroleum products that are exported. energy independence is not the goal of the oil companies so it is not going to happen even if the epa goes away. Blaming a reptile makes for a better sound bite than the blaming the oil companies.

war is not going to go away as long as the people behind it can walk away with billions in profit. Take the profit out of war and it will stop. The next one is in the planning stages right now and will be available for 24 hour viewing shortly. Our new president has an unprecidented 3 generals in top whitehouse positions and he has said "I love war".

Let's fact check this one. The media has had a lot of fun during the election.

I not sure what part of my quote you are fact checking but if it is the i like war part, i saw the words come out of his mouth. There is no context where those words are appropriate for anyone to say.

one thing is for sure with oil and gas prices. They go up and down and in a cyclical fashion and it's not necessarily dependent on who is in office
