Where Have all the Home Buyers Gone?

It’s been a rotten fall season for home sales in California. Where have all the home buyers gone? Where have all your clients gone?

Yes, the pundits seem to offer loads of reasons why sales are down. But no one is talking about the obvious. People without jobs can’t buy homes.

Have you asked yourself, what are you doing to help keep jobs and home buyers in California? No real estate professional probably thinks of themselves as part of the problem. No one says,”I’m the guy who sent jobs to India.” But maybe you are sending your business to companies that are sending the jobs overseas? Companies like First American which proudly boasts that they have moved more than 4,000 jobs to India alone?

Fidelity expects to create and hire 1,800 jobs in India next year according to Inman News.

Are you aware which companies are controlled and/or related to First American and Fidelity? Here’s a few:

• First American Title
• First American Home Warranty
• FANHD
• JCP
• LGS
• PDS

• Fidelity National Title
• Fidelity Home Warranty
• disclosureSource

Next time you buy a real estate product; why not invest with companies whose workforce and products are made entirely here in the U.S.? Companies like American Home Shield, Stewart Title. Home Warranty of America, Property I.D. or Hearst Disclosures come to mind.

Do you have an American company to suggest? We’d like to hear from you.
