    Ep. 230 - NAR Lawsuit - The New Rules For Real Estate And How To Buy A Home – PART 1

    Ep. 230 - NAR Lawsuit - The New Rules For Real Estate And How To Buy A Home – PART 1

    Back in 2019, we made a rather bold prediction that the real estate market, which has been really unfair for first-tome homebuyers in the first place, would soon undergo a massive change. Initially it looks like change is definitely coming with this NAR lawsuit that’s making the headlines lately. But it’s not the real estate revolution we at the buyer’s side were hoping for. In many ways, this bogus lawsuit is even obscuring the real systemic issues and the collusion within the system that screws first-time homebuyers. What does this NAR lawsuit even mean? More importantly, how does it affect you as a first-time homebuyer? Does it change anything? Most likely not, but what can you do about it? Tune in and find out.

This is actually a really helpful resource. Listen to titles that stand out to you and don’t overthink.

Highly Recommended by a Real Estate Professional.

I am a managing broker in Washington State. David knows what he is talking about and I highly recommend this podcast. I recommend all my clients listen to it. David is an expert in his field and puts a lot of research , time, and knowledge into this podcast.

I enjoy working with first-time homebuyers and want them to know there are unicorns out there who actually do care about their well-being.

The host is cool and shares helpful information but the latest episode is just so elitist and gross. The guest has a budget of 600k as a first time buyer? That is so unrealistic and is absolutely unhelpful. Totally turned me off to the whole thing. I’ll come back in a couple months.
