The real estate industry is a difficult field to succeed in due to its ever-changing nature, but Clayton Perlman knows that consistent success is simply the result of hard work and preparation. The real estate market is, even more so than a lot of other industries, heavily tied to the health of the economy as a whole.
The 2008 economic downturn was hard on nearly every industry, but the real estate industry was hit especially hard as property values fell. Many people struggled to keep their current proprieties and certainly could not afford to invest in new ones. As the economy has recovered so has the real estate market, but the 2008 downturn demonstrates just how difficult it can be to succeed in real estate over the long term.
Long-term real estate success really depends on knowledge. You need to have knowledge of both your local market and the economy as a whole. You need to have a thorough understand of the market you are working in so that you can you predict coming trends and respond to the needs of your clients.

Knowledge of the economy as a whole is important so you can help to prepare yourself and your clients for any sudden changes in the economy.
