Real Estate Realities With The RebelBroker

Home inventory is ramping up at a pace that I don't think anyone could have imagined just a few weeks ago. In addition, despite recent news that home starts have dropped, we will still see a solid increase in home completions in 2022. I think that spells potential opportunity for buyers and investors and possibly a warning to home owners. So in this weeks show, we will chat about what this shift in inventory could mean for buyers, sellers and investors. Check out the show notes on the website for all the details. https://www.therebelbroker.com   ...

Real Estate Realities With The RebelBroker

The folks over at realtor.org are reporting that the national inventory of homes increased 11% when compared to the same time last year. This is definitely information worth remembering since, as I have suggested for years now, this is all about inventory. We take that national number and we bring it down to the local level and take a look at the home inventory numbers for Santa Clara County. What we discover is pretty amazing! Source:

Top 1% Real Estate Agents - The Lie show art Top 1% Real Estate Agents - The Lie

Real Estate Realities With The RebelBroker

The real estate industry has done a good job on selling the public on the idea that a "Top 1%" agent is the best choice to get the best results. The truth is that the criteria used to define if an agent is in the top 1% has nothing to do with what you as a buyer, seller or investor wants or needs in their transaction. In fact, because these agents tend to focus on quantity over quality, you actually will have a higher chance of getting lower than average results. In todays show, we chat about that and review some real world examples along with offer some questions to ask to help you find the...

Initial indicators are in and suggest we prepare for 'Recession 2022'! Are we in a recession? ​Right now, we have hit declining GDP for the first quarter. Indicators are there, but for many we are not 'officially' in a recession. However, the question is not will be hit a recession at this point, but when. What is a recession? Big declines in economic activity. Big slow downs in economic activity can have broad effects. With low activity comes lower needs for employees to do what they would normally do when the economy is healthy due to lower demand.  Goods and services produced drop....

What is the biggest trick real estate agents use when working with clients? We will discuss that today!

real estateFor those of you that have been listening to my show for a while, you know that I take a slightly different approach. In terms of what I consider to be the "Right" way to do things, the current dominant attitude in real estate just does not make the cut. Today, we are going to reveal the greatest weapon that real estate agents will bring out to get you to make an emotional rather than a rational decision. It is a tool  that is taught by EVERYONE in real estate. On its own, it is not a bad thing. To one degree or another, we all do it every day. However, when this tool is taken to the degree that you embrace the 'small deception' - which is standard operating procedure in the world of real estate - you are crossing a line that leads to an attitude that too easily can brush the truth aside for more and more critical issues - which is a bad thing. Now you see what I did there? I have teased the point of todays show hard. I am told that this is the way to write show notes! So consider yourself teased! I will not only lay out what this tool is and how it is used against you, but how you should counter it so that you can get what you deserve from your chosen real estate professional. Oh, and for all you real estate agents out there, we will chat about how you can still use this technique, just not be a lying butt head about it.
