This may appear flippant given all the rough economic news we’ve been force fed recently, but it’s a fact! 93.5% of Ann Arbor area residents are employed! Holy Smokes! Given the amount of doom and gloom we’ve seen economically, I expected there to only be five of us still working!
Oddly enough, 93.5% is the number of folks in the United States that are still gainfully employed!
Why is it important that 93.5% of nation, and the city of Ann Arbor, are employed?
It’s important because we’ve been focused on negative news for a LOOONG time. 93.5% employment rates mean that there are a lot of folks working, earning a paycheck, living day to day and helping move a sluggish economy along. Recognizing that 100% employment is a pipe dream, at what point, at what level of unemployment should we as a nation actually be scared?
It is important for all of us to keep our eyes and thoughts on the positive in every day life. Lemons into lemonade. There IS a silver lining to all of these times. What exactly the good news is, remains to be seen for many. For us, Team366, we’ve seen this time as an excellent opportunity to assist folks in their housing decisions. It may be a rough housing market, but homes are still being bought and sold. And we’ve been talking with our clients on how to navigate the rapidly changing real estate market.
