Of the people who came to the open house today, only one was a neighbor, and none were agents. Yeah sure Jim, but how serious were they?
There are plenty of drivebys; anyone who is willing to park, get out of their car and trudge up to another open house knowing they have been constantly disappointed by others all year (and have to endure another salesman) must have sincere motivation to buy a house at some point. If they could only find the right house, at the right price!
Though I speculate in this video that buyer agents will get phased out, it’s not the best alternative – buyers should have representation, it is just a matter of cost/quality.
In this futuristic scenario, the listing agent will only be representing the seller, and will likely want to process your order at the seller’s price.
Buyers may prefer to get their own representation.
There will likely be real estate consultants available to assist buyers with pricing, and to help address the major deal points.
If you were buying, would you be willing to pay for good help?
Annoyed with the seller sign-in sheets at open houses?
I’ll go everywhere to help out a bubbleinfo reader! This is a great house too, built in 1995 on a culdesac with no HOA or Mello-Roos for only $569,000. I’ll be doing open house this Sunday from noon to 3pm:
It was nine years ago today that we got started!
It was early on a Saturday morning that I signed up for a free blog website, hoping to inform and educate sellers about the impending doom on the horizon.

In many ways it’s been a full circle back to where it started - trying to deliver pertinent information to assist sellers and buyers with making decisions.
I would like to be your realtor – if you are thinking of moving and want to discuss in detail how I can help, let me know!
Thanks for being here, and participating!
Here’s one of the first foreclosure videos, from August, 2008. All types of quirky things have happened along the way – one of the viewers of this video repeatedly pointed out how I was breaking the law by not pulling my car all the way up the driveway, and was blocking the sidewalk:
This is a new video of the remodeled 1,946sf single-story house on Manzanita in Carlsbad that just hit the MLS today for $799,000. Kayla and I will be there from noon to 3pm on Saturday for open house, and Richard will be there on Sunday during the same time period – stop by!
There is a tease in here that wifey will make an appearance, but my camera got turned off – hopefully it’ll be in the movie. But she has promised to share a few thoughts on camera here soon.
Home improvement doesn’t have to be a daunting and expensive endeavor. Ingenuity and the internet will take you a long way!
Here’s an example of how to turn a drab-looking 1970s townhouse into a chic, modern home without spending millions!
More scenes from the seven days of filming shot over the last 15 months. Plus a visit with wifey to the real Enchanted Tiki Bar at Disneyland.
