What IF...I were the New Presidential Housing Czar?
Take this scenario...all the homes for sale in my city are foreclosures. All the agents became Federal Real Estate Agents under my employ by appointment of the President of the United States. My job is to Dispose of all the homes in the best manner, at the highest price possible in the shortest period of time.
My first day on the new job, I searched the MLS and found hundreds of homes by new and seasoned agents as well as broker owners of these companies that had the following problems:
(1) No picture in the MLS at all after 14 to 45 days.
I could go on, but WHAT DID I DO AS THE NEW PRESIDENTIAL HOUSE CZAR FOR MY TOWN ON THE FIRST DAY OF WORK?
Well, I called in 200 of about 300 real estate agents and I FIRED EVERYONE OF THEM. They are now out of a job. They might now have to ask if you want to Supersize the Fries with that order.
You would think that in the tough economic times we're in and the housing market being a key element of the erosion of our national economy that the Cream of the Crop would be left in this business and you'd see some top notch creative, efficient go-getter agents promoting the sale of their home for their client. But I believe what has happened is that all the hard working well-intended agents have left the business and left us with the "Don't Bother Me" agents that have a "Financially Influential Spouse" that gives them Referrals so it doesn't really matter if you do a good job or not...it's just whether or not you "know somebody". Some day, that may change.
