If you are like most people, the answer is Monday! Right? After all, Rome fell on a Monday. The Mayans predicted the end of the world on a Monday. The Titanic sank on a Monday. If you do not believe me, look it up. Need more proof? Employees know the least favorite day is Monday. I think I know why, but that is not the point today. Without considering a reason, surveys conclude, Monday is generally the least favorite day every week. Ask any emergency room staff or EMT. Nurses know; Monday is their least favorite and busiest day of the week. Ask a teacher which day is most feared. Monday. And, if you did not know already, Monday is the most likely day of the week that one will suffer a heart attack. Was that enough? Did you want one more example? Ok — You are most likely to ponder suicide on a Monday. Why? Were you paying attention to the above paragraphs, and you still ask why? Uplifting? Sure it is. EMTs and nurses and doctors and teachers have bills to pay too, right? So, now that we have established what Monday means to some people, let us talk about the title to this blog. Every day is Monday when you are a Realtor. Consider for a moment: When does a buyer want to see a house? A buyer wants to see a house when he is not at work. Obviously, buyers cannot see homes while at work. Buyers can only see a home when buyers are off. When is a buyer not working? Evenings. Weekends. Holidays. Consider also: When does the seller want the Realtor to work to sell a house? (Always)! Sellers want to see signs and advertising everywhere promoting everything about their property. In addition, there is the open house. When is an open house? An open house is on a weekend either Saturday or Sunday or both. For today’s purpose, we will ignore Broker Open Houses. That is why some Realtors work on weekends or weekdays or nights or holidays. At the other days and times there is rigorous preparation. That will be a different blog. This is Labor Day Weekend. Since biblical times, Labor Day is always on Monday. Again, look it up. Similarly, since 1987 (the year I earned my license) I have worked every Labor Day Weekend. I expect with my 600-plus transactions over the course of 25 years, I have sold homes on every day of the year. I collected final signatures for a transaction on Mother’s Day. I sold two homes during one single Thanksgiving weekend. I sold a listing in Newark in 20 minutes. One year I was showing homes on Christmas Eve and we closed the deal on Christmas day. I sold two homes by noon on Easter Sunday in the late 1980’s. YES — I have an open house scheduled for Labor Day Sunday, and I am working on Monday because most people are off. Every day is Monday when you are a Realtor. We are lucky that way. Wishing you a happy Labor Day Weekend!
