  • Eventually the multitude of court cases (there is more than 1) which essentially is trying to claw back the Buy Side 2-3% on each real estate transaction that EVER happened, will win but not the pandora's box of opening all these past transactions will not happen. But going forward at some point in the next 2-3 years, Sellers will pay 3% commissions and buyers agent will be relegated to luxury and specialty markets. Agents who focus on listings will be the great benefactors as they will still get paid. There will be a massive outflux of real estate agents as the part timers, license parkers and speciality buyers agencies will never be able to get their buyers to pay them more than $1,000 in most markets. As such, diversifying your business is paramount.
  • As usual, as useless as NAR generally is, these lawsuits are ignorant jokes. It always makes me wonder if the attorneys have ever talked to any listing agents or sellers or buyers agents.
  • This suit is going to trial in February! This could very well blow the doors off of current system.
  • I was just in to see another article and saw this one. This is very interesting for sure. It raises a lot of questions and if successful this will change the industry for sure. Thank you for posting Jesse.
