    Not entirely true. There are brokers that will list your property in the MLS and respond to offers for a flat fee (a few thousand). Maybe 4matic had something like that. You certainly don't need to pay some dirt pimp 3% to list your home. Have the home hit the MLS on a Thursday with it advertising an open house Saturday and Sunday. State all offers need to be in that following Monday. Counter offer all asking for their best offer. Accept best offer a week after it hits the MLS.

    That is for both sides of the deal, I was talking 3% for the listing side only.

    I just sold in Encinitas CA. $1.3M home and negotiated 1% selling agent commission and &
    2% buyers agent fee. In this market, it should be easy to save that 1/2% on the buyers side. 8 days on MLS. We also used Endpoint for escrow, think fintech in real estate - flat fee $1k on each side. That saved us a chunk of money too.

    Thanks for the heads up on the escrow Nick as I hadn't heard about Endpoint before. Good move.

    The seller is Lewis A. Sanders, founder and chief executive of New York investment firm Sanders Capital, the people familiar with the deal said. Mr. Sanders was formerly chairman and chief executive of Sanford C. Bernstein, according to a biography on his company’s website. That company is now part of AllianceBernstein.

    The roughly 22,000-square-foot, 11-bedroom compound, which includes a guesthouse, was purchased in 2009 for $43 million, according to public records. Mr. Sanders later renovated the property, according to a person familiar with the situation. It wasn’t publicly listed for sale this time around.

    "Far worse than corporations taking a few thousand units off the market for owners are the governments and noisy NIMBYish residents taking millions of units off the market for owners and renters alike—by blocking construction projects in the past few decades. (California alone has an estimated shortage of 3 million housing units.) From New York to California, deep-blue cities and states have amassed a pitiful record of blocking housing construction and failing to meet rising demand with adequate supply. Many of the people tweeting about BlackRock are represented by city councils and state governments, or are surrounded by zoning laws and local ordinances that make home construction something between onerous and impossible."

    So for almost $600k, you get rancid meat in the fridge and soiled carpets included. Nice.

    "the national freeze on home foreclosures ends in July"

    What's everyone's take on this when foreclosures start happening in July?

    At least in my area: Mostly going to be the "cheap" houses (< $250,000 1/1 or 2/1, many of which are in rough shape), which will get snapped up as STR or "Flips" or Rentals by investor groups. Likely will have limited impact on bringing the middle market houses back down to earth (Aka the $400,000 3/2 houses that are presently selling for $700,000.)

    The REIT's are licking their chomps. Those who missed out on deals thinking that prices will drop, or access to lower tier inventory that they possibly might afford coming on line will be sorely disappointed.

    Anything that goes into foreclosure will be handled in a very slow, methodical and limited distribution plan. All in order to give the appearance of scarcity and maximize GP.

    Hopefully Biden learned by watching Obama that it would be politically wise to stem foreclosures as much as possible.

    This. Yes, owning a ridiculously massive house like this just screams green.

    There are blocks of one story buildings on a main transit corridor zoned for 5 stories near me in Seattle that nobody wants to touch- some of them boarded up for years. A CVS took one of the best corners (complete with parking lot) a couple years ago and one apartment block went in but otherwise nobody seems to want to build. We've got decade old light rail stations with a only few token projects around them. All the development that is increasing units is either in Amazon land or people waiting for grandma to die and make it into 3 townhomes that each cost more than the original building. The city is already zoned to be able to add like 200k more units today.

    Pretty sure Biden was doing more than fetching coffee for Obama and following Bo around with poop bags during the recovery from the last recession.

    Phone calls to Ukraine?

    Anyhoo, I am pretty skeptical that I'll be able to find a pretty affordable month to two month rental near a good western mountain after this absurd price hike for almost anything, It's not as though it was cheap and easy beforehand, but, this is getting ridiculous, when something like Harry's one bedroom his a near million dollar sale mark just a decade after the supposed housing crash. Then you look at Driggs, which, just a few years ago, was affordable to mere mortals, and now anything there seems to be hitting seven figures. I know it's been said a million times, but, where the fuck is the workforce for all of these ski hills going to live? And how the fuck can even upper middle class skiers afford the sport?

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.
