Real Lawsuit in Japan! Real Estate Agents Abscond After They Seduce Buyers into Purchasing Homes 40% Over Market Value!
I've heard of buyer's remorse but this is twisted! 2 men & 10 women claim their real estate agents practically seduced them into buying property. Wow, that's a new excuse! They're sayin' they were scammed into thinking they might get married. Honestly folks, matrimony had nothing to do with signing on the dotted line for that house. They made a mistake. Plain and simple. And now they are trying do say their realtor was nothing more than a gigolo! LOL! Jilted Buyers!
A GROUP OF singletons in Japan who claim they were tricked into buying apartments by real estate agents feigning a romantic interest in them launched legal action this week....Once contracts were signed and sealed, the romance disappeared and the estate agent skipped out of the relationship, leaving the new homeowners with the keys to a new front door but not to anyone else’s heart...One victim was persuaded to buy three properties
Job With Best Chance to Find Mate is Real Estate. Guess I'm Doing It All Wrong..
Engaged real estate agents in NYC
Any of you met your boo hocking homes? If so, please share so I can learn! The Real Deal says: "Real estate, more than some other industries, affords plenty of opportunities to find love... And brokers meet plenty of new people each day." The Elite Daily also writes the "While many companies have strict no dating policies, there is one career path that has an advantage when it comes to finding love."
New National Association of Realtors survey says single people are screwed. "The continued growth in married couples as single buyers shrink demonstrates that households with dual incomes are more successful in obtaining a mortgage." What are us lonely single gals supposed to do? We can't compete. Unless we marry up, is there any hope?!
Real phone conversation with clueless listing agent
Herman: Hi, I'm calling about listing on *&^@& St. Is there anything wrong with the property?
Agent: It's gorgeous!
Herman: How come there are no photos?
Agent: Didn't you read the pretty description I wrote?
Herman: (rolls eyes) Um, a picture is worth a 1000 words.
I feel so sorry for his clients! People are visual creatures. If your house is for sale, make sure you have TONS of pics. It's like online dating, you are more likely to click on the guy with attractive photos and sparse bio, than a guy with no pix and long flowery bio (TMI or over compensation). Let's face it. No pix implies fugly!
Case in point: Notice how boring this blog post is without any images?!
Homeownership = Aphrodisiac?!
CNN Money's survey reveals more than a third of women said they'd much rather date a homeowner than a renter. Well d'uh! If a man can commit to a 30 yr mortgage, he's more likely commit to a 30 yr marriage! Renters bail the second they find a better apt! Who wants a boyfriend who'll ditch you for someone cheaper?!
Amanda Seyfried & her real estate broker boyfriend Justin Huchel just broke up after 1 month of dating! This isn't the first time Amanda has had bad luck with a real estate professional. Her prior beau was NY real estate exec Andrew Joblon who split after 4 months.
Anyone else had trouble dating someone in real estate? Take it from me, it's tough. Income is up and down. Weekends and evenings are devoted to clients. The market is crap now. Sometimes I just wanna flip burgers!
We all can't be married to Bravo TV's Mauricio Umansky! (Kyle Richards, if you are listening, give us advice how you dealt with dating a realtor!)
If Million Dollar Listing & Millionaire Matchmaker had a baby from a one night stand, Love Broker would be it! BravoTV has greenlit a new show where 2 bff's (1 real estate agent & 1 matchmaker) pimp out their male clients, both gay & str8. Well, as my Puerto Vallarta realtor friend Nicole Martin loves to joke: "Real estate is the finest form of prostitution." Seems BravoTV agrees! Can't wait to watch!
