Florida Renovation Loans: Where did all these people come from? Are the Malls Getting Busy Again? Is the Economy Picking Up?

Where did all these people come from? Are the Malls Getting Busy Again? Is the Economy Picking Up?

Where did all these people come from?  Were there "great shopping deals" I wasn't aware of?  Did I miss out on something? Is the economy picking up?  Treasure Coast Mall in Jensen Beach, FL - BUSY AS EVER! 

While I was working at the Mall yesterday, I couldn't help but notice how busy it was.  It was packed!  For a minute, I thought it was the Holiday Season - but it's only August. Then I realized it had to be that the economy is showing signs of getting better, there were some great sales being advertised, or that's it - the kids were going back to school and the families were doing their last minute shopping.

As I sat there manning our Lifestyle Realty Group Kiosk Booth at the Mall - I was amazed at what and who I saw.  I always remembered while I sat and waited for my family to complete their holiday shopping (never the other way around where they had to wait for me???) I always enjoyed watching the hustle and bustle of the people walking around with their newly acquired treasures they purchased. It's amazing how many people stop by and ask how the housing market is going?  Or hey, do you know of any great deals?

Our Kiosk is a great way to strike up a conversation with people.  We have two huge monitors that run 24/7.  One monitor shows all our listings, our office, and our great realtors and staff.  The other monitor displays our treasure coast breaking news website which is a free service to our community which helps local businesses do some "free advertising".


I always love to shop for deals, now I can help people shop for their deals!  It's a great way to meet people, talk about Real Estate, share ideas, and the best part of all - I don't have to spend money or worry how I'm explaining to my husband why I just had to buy that deal!

Susan, it seems that anyone with schoolage children is out there doing back to school shopping.  Is your kiosk one that runs all year round or just at peak seasons?

Lora our Kiosk is fairly new.  We are going to see how it does during the slower months.  If it works well, then we will keep it for the peak as well.  Thanks for asking.
