Yesterday I called my auto dealership for regular service on my van, and they said, “When can you come in?” I said that I could come in any time over the next seven days. “How about tomorrow?” was the reply. I agreed, and then I thought about how I normally have to schedule a week or so in advance to get service, which made me wonder whether things have slowed up that much in the economy.
Almost makes me want to test the waters, and call a contractor to do some deferred maintenance on our humble hovel.
I’ll put it to the rest of you. How much do you think business conditions have slowed down? How anxious are sellers to get your business?
