Bob’s Market Message

Bob McConkey

November 14, 2014


Here we are in mid-November. The leaves have turned and fallen, the temperature has cooled, and yes so has the wholesale market. Coming off a giant anniversary sale last week, this week’s sale was fairly modest. Both Seattle and Spokane experienced sub-50% sales. While demand has tapered off, what we see is surely not alarming nor particularly unusual. These weeks leading up to Thanksgiving have traditionally represented the “bottom” of the cycle. We have annually seen activity increase in early December as everyone starts to look with optimism toward the New Year.

This coming week in Spokane however is shaping up to be a big week. Toyota Financial Services is celebrating its first birthday here at DAA next Thursday with 115 units! We also have a nice run scheduled for Ally Financial as well as Wells Fargo just to name a few.

Thank you for your support of DAA!
See you in the lanes next week.

– Bob
