Choosing The Right Niche Market As A Real Estate Agent


James CoenReal estate agents have gone through some rough times and are probably moving towards even tougher environments. The sudden drop in prices surprised many agents. It turned out that the real estate boom did not last forever. Now, real estate agents nationwide are scrambling to deal with a rapidly changing real estate market.In this down market, just like in any market, there is still money to be made. It just comes down to choosing the right niches and focusing your marketing on a certain niche. In this article, we are going to look at the niches of affluent homeowners and investor clients.When tough times hit, targeting affluent home owners is almost always a good bet. The affluent have the means and knowledge to sit a crisis out. You may even find out that affluent home owners are inclined to buy, especially now when prices are low.Investors can make a killing in down markets. A certain part of the investor market was almost wiped out when the mortgage crisis hit, but a big part is profiting immensely from these changing market conditions. If you manage to target this niche, you gain customers that have buying power, that are willing to buy and have the means to give a seller financial certainty.Whatever niche you pick as a real estate agent, be it investors, affluent homeowners or another, be sure to focus on the marketing part of your operation. Develop unique services for these niche markets and stand out from the competition. This way, when competitors left and right are quitting, you can prosper in these difficult times.

Chinese chef Peng Chang-kuei’s death announced

Saturday, December 3, 2016

Peng Chang-kuei, a Chinese-born chef credited with creating the internationally popular dish General Tso’s chicken, was yesterday announced to have died by his son.

Chuck Peng told The Associated Press his father died of pneumonia in Taipei, Taiwan on Wednesday. The chef fled China to Taiwan in 1949 and invented the dish shortly thereafter. In the 1970s Peng opened a New York restaurant, which he claimed was a regular haunt of Henry Kissinger. Peng credited Kissinger with the dish’s popularity.

Peng conceived the famed dish, which is unknown in China, as unfried. Garlic and soy sauce provided flavour, as did chillies. Today the chicken is served across the US as fried chicken in a sweet, sticky sauce. The chillies remain, with broccoli also appearing. Peng named it after Zuo Zongtang from his native Hunan Province; Zongtang assisted in suppressing the 19th-century Taiping Rebellion.

Peng said the meal was invented for a US admiral visiting Taiwan. Over three days, Peng was contracted to produce several banquets, with not one repeated dish. After exhausting traditional chicken dishes Peng said he created what became General Tso’s chicken as an experiment.

In later years he ran Peng’s, a chain of Taiwanese restaurants. General Tso’s chicken also remained popular across the US. His son claimed he remained working in the kitchen until a few months before his death, at 97. In a documentary two years ago, shown photos of General Tso’s chicken served in the US in modern times, he remarked “This is all crazy nonsense.”

Running away from his farming family in Changsha, Peng trained under Cao Jingchen. He fled communist rule that followed the 1930s Japanese invasion. He fathered seven children, six of whom remain alive, from three marriages. Chuck Peng described his father as “very good to other people, [but] very hard on his family.” Peng Jr. spoke of a “very demanding” man who “thought other people’s cooking was no good.”

Two years ago the Taipei City Government awarded Peng an Outstanding Citizen award. Peng, then 95 and unstable, collected the award in person and delivered a speech in Mandarin Chinese.
