The real estate commission lawsuit that threatened buyer’s agents’ income is coming to an end. The conclusion? There could be even more murkiness ahead, and agent commissions are far from future-proofed. This settlement could either have been a cash grab from the get-go or a way to end the “unfair” buyer-seller agent commission split. So, how will this affect buyers and sellers today, and will these lawsuits make a difference on your next home sale or purchase?
We’ve got the hard-hitting housing market headlines you need to hear about on this episode of On the Market. First, we’ll talk about RE/MAX’s settlement and the future for buyer’s agents. Then, we’ll uncover why exactly housing starts have started (no pun intended) to freeze and why apartment investors could be begging you to take land off their hands. And, if you’ve ever wanted your home to pay you money every month, the new “passive home” development has just what you’re looking for. But with a high initial purchase price, are the savings/profits worth the cost?
Finally, if you thought you were smart for house hacking, prepare for an ego-blow because Dave Ramsey wants YOU to know that subsidizing your mortgage is a move for LOSERS. Sell that investment property, buy your house in cash, and prepare some beans and rice for dinner! All that and more on this episode!
