Realtors: uneducated and overpaid


It’s not a house it’s a home.
Buy now or you’ll be priced out forever.
Renting is just throwing your money away.
You have to live somewhere.
They’re not making any more of it.
Real estate never goes down.
You’re just kidding yourself if you’re waiting for prices to fall.
Never a better time to buy!
I think you have a deep-seated fear of commitment.
Never try to time the market (when it’s falling).
It’s different this time.
_(insert location)_ is so desirable, people will want to live here no matter how expensive it gets.
Boomers/immigrants/rich people will keep prices permanently high.
Prices have achieved a permanently high plateau/new paradigm/soft landing.
_(insert location)_ is land-locked.
If you’re waiting for the perfect time to buy, you’ll be waiting forever.
You can’t lose in real estate –it’s a no-brainer.
Real estate’s seasonal; after _(insert holiday)_ things will return to normal.
The last housing drop was caused by _(insert unique, non-repeatable event: 9-11, collapse of Soviet Union, earthquake, hurricane, etc.)_; it’ll NEVER happen again.
STOP LOW-BALLING! STOP!! I REALLY MEAN IT!!!

Realt-whore quotes I’d like to see:

Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
Why, yes, I do drive looking through my rear-view mirror. Why do you ask?
Prices are not falling; they’re just appreciating in a different direction.
It’s perfectly normal for inventory to quintuple this time of year.
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.
These are not the droids you’re looking for, move along.
Didn’t I tell you NOT to low-ball?! STOP IT ALREADY!!!

Have any favorites of your own? Discuss, enjoy…
