Shopping for a New (Leased) Car

It dawned on me the other week at a showing:  me, Mr. Client, and Mrs. Client all arrived in our own cars, coming from 3 different locations — and 45 minutes later left in 3 separate cars, heading 3 different places.

Energy-efficient or not, that’s how busy Buyers (and their Realtors) tend to view homes these days.

Which influences what kind of car(s) Realtors are likely to drive in the future.

Out:  gas-guzzling behemoths and big, luxury sedans capable of chauffeuring clients — and many of them – in style.

In:  sporty, smaller cars that are energy-efficient (electric?  hybrid?).

The exception to the above?

If you need a bigger car  . . . for your kids and dog.
