Interesting Comment from Realtor Last WeekSubmitted by aerograd on Fri, 11/16/2012 - 10:38
My wife and I went to Arkansas again last week to pick out our family retreat property.
While driving around with the realtor and chatting, he made a couple of interesting comments.
First, he said that this has been his best year in real estate ever. I knew the market was picking up, but that it could be "the best year" surprised me.
The second, and much bigger surprise, was out of the blue. He said that 80-90% of the people he has worked with this year have been just like us. Out-of-state people looking to move where it's low crime and safe, where the local population is conservative and wants government out of our lives, and looking to get some useable land with natural water sources like ponds & creeks so they can have gardens, raise livestock, etc.
80-90%! Holy crap!!
Based on his comments, it appears the prepper movement is growing faster than I imagined. Everyone is starting to see the writing on the wall.
