None of the above apply to me right now. It's average volume right now. November was good but October and September were at my "break even" load. "Crap" properties seem to rise to the top this time of year. I will cut off all my clients as of Monday the 17th til a week into the new year. Big fish are passing by headed south and I have fishing to get done.

Thankfully, the past 2 months have been above-average in volume for this time of year, and have had an above-average year overall (much better than the past 2 years at least). Market your business now while you have the time. It most likely will not result in immediate assignments, but is likely to result in future business.

Flawed Poll .. although many may not want to hear this but not everyone is slow. Some of us are just as slammed now as we were during the REFI boom.

Trying to get clean up for end of year and starting of retirement and those sunset years.

Have one to look at, two to write and equine/RE/Personal Property to complete as well.

Getting ready for hearing next week with the state as well.

Selling of the ranch and restructuring of our business and personal investments.

So all in all busy.

I'm painfully slow and I still haven't gotten my Christmas shopping done! Hard to go shopping when there is no cash in the pocket.

I haven skied in, ahhh, 40+ years? Still very busy but it's mostly cleaning up stuff from the end of November which was a very good month. 7 days into December, 4 assignments.

Busy!! but the work I'm doing really sucks cause it shows how much Appraisers were part of the problem. Now remember busy to me, is a couple a week, so that might not count. Only reason I'm doing work is to keep the Pool Boy, Landscaper, cleaning lady employed, & it keeps me from the Honey do list. Plus it pays for my toys, 2.5 years & then it's Motor Home time.
