As far as economic or market adjustments, some of that change has already taken place.  Anybody who expects to see dramatic change on day one has been looking in the wrong places on the internet, as one responder said perhaps Facebook.

Will the economy change during the term of the new president, quite likely it will.  These changes could be due to factors that are beyond control of any president, for good or bad.  The economy has changed with the current president, up and down. 

I am not certain why anybody would think this is necessarly a doomsday event, there will be some changes over time, lets home that most are for the good of America.

It is amazing how some can be so detached from reality.

Paul, I had a client this past week that said she wanted to wait until Trump's inauguration to see if the economy collapsed before she makes a purchase. She seriously believes that once Trump is sworn in as President, the economy will change overnight. If it doesn't, then she will buy some property.

Any idiot that wants to leave this country over any election should, they are doing us a favor. I have no time for whiners, I'm interested in people that make the best of any situation and create their own economy. The president has nothing to do with my income unless I roll over and play dead and allow the President to be my excuse. We all who were in business from 2006-2011 survived the worst economy on the planet through 2 Presidents; we survived it, so we can do anything we decide we're going to do if we're resolute in our decision and purpose. I did sonmething last year I've never done in my career, I laughed in the face of a buyer that told me he's going to quit his buying process since Trump is looking like the potential winner and our economy would crash. I literally without any thought or control burst out laughing because I thought he made a joke. The look on his face said otherwise, but at that point in my mind, I was saying buh bye now. Last time we ever spoke or saw each other, but man I just couldn't believe the stupidity.

Start a campaign making that offer. Before long Canada will be building a wall.

My first thought while reading this question is this might be an opportunity to sign a listing if she is already a homeowner.   

Whether she was thinking of moving up or is a first time homebuyer...I'll stick by my old standard response when I hear of any reason why someone is not moving forward....real buyers buy and real sellers sell.
