    Dishin' Dirt on Talking to the Seller about the NAR Settlement

    Dishin' Dirt on Talking to the Seller about the NAR Settlement

    A lot of you have asked how you should discuss the NAR settlement with your Seller. 

    Today I discuss some of the main points you want to emphasize to your seller about how the settlement did not change the law nor did it prohibit a seller from paying a buyer commission. 

    I also discuss what the law suit was really about and what it was intended to change. Spoiler alert, I think it accomplished that intent. Of course, it will come with a lot of collateral damage.

    Dishin' Dirt on Is this the Agent's Answer to the NAR Settlement? Maybe a Positive.

    Dishin' Dirt on Is this the Agent's Answer to the NAR Settlement? Maybe a Positive.

    It all is doom and gloom since the NAR settlement. But is there another side that is possibly a positive for agents?  

    No one really knows how this will play out. Not even the so-called experts.  However, are we to believe that NAR has not already thought out what happens next.  I can't believe that one of the nation's largest trade organization has not thought this through before agreeing to paying $418 million.

    Today, Kevin Fields joins me what a positive view of how the settlement may play out.  See what he thinks could actually be seen as a strong change for good agents.

    BREAKING: Dishin' Dirt on the NAR Settlement and its Impact on You

    BREAKING: Dishin' Dirt on the NAR Settlement and its Impact on You

    As you probably know by now the National Association of REALTORs settled the Sitzer/Burnette Case last week for $418 million dollars.  But the bigger cost may be the concessions that NAR made in order to settle including a new rule prohibiting the agent from listing a co-op fee on the MLS.   

    Today I discuss the settlement as well as the ramifications.  Spoiler alert. It isn't pretty.

    Dishin' Dirt on You Can't Half-A** the Buyer Agency Contract

    Dishin' Dirt on You Can't Half-A** the Buyer Agency Contract

    In light of the monumental verdict in the Sitzer/Burnette case Buyer Agency Contracts are more important than ever.  You can no longer half-a** these agreements. You should take extra care to demonstrate your knowledge and to fully explain not only your duties and obligations but also those of the buyer/client.

    In today's podcast I cover the do's and don't of the Buyer Agency Contract as a result of Sitzer.

    Here is the link to my previous episodes on explaining agency:

    Dishin' Dirt on PART 2 of the Most Important and Scary Real Estate Podcast this Year!

    Dishin' Dirt on PART 2 of the Most Important and Scary Real Estate Podcast this Year!

    I hope last week scared you enough to realize that everyone is a potential victim of wire fraud.  It is getting much worse, not better in the real estate market.

    Tom Cronkright of CertifID returns for part two of how wire fraud is growing in real estate, the methods the fraudsters are using and how to protect yourself as a real estate agent. As I stated last week, wire fraud is a ticking timebomb and statistically speaking you are probably over due to have a client become a victim.   Learn what to do to protect yourself and your client.

Essential listening for a S.C. realtor

As the old realtor saying goes, location, location, location. The real estate business is incredibly local and dish dirt gives you a national perspective with South Carolina insights across legal, marketing, and personal growth topics that can’t be matched. Easily one of the top real estate podcasts.
