The good ones love what they do. It’s a grind for the rest of them. Managing X number of buyers and sellers, weekend showings, open houses, off-hours etc. I suppose it’s “what you make it” for a lot of agents, but I’m guessing for every easy client, there’s 10 pain in the dicks that waste your time.

It’s a no from me dog and I’m in already in a quasi sales role.

People in the industry who are successful pretty much have to live the industry because it's all they do/have time to do. We had one close friend realtor who got deep into house flipping and the "revenue opportunity" and whatnot that somewhat made us drift apart.

There's no job I could enjoy enough to make it my life. Give me M-F for 8-10 hours a day and that's it. Beyond that is :butwhy: :nope:

Even if I finally make it to pro musician status and can get paid to do something that I actually enjoy, I still can't see having it be my whole life. I'm still going to want to do car and bike shit, play video games, and spend time doing absolutely nothing. Being able to relax and do nothing without feeling massive guilt and anxiety that I need to be working on something is amazing and I think I've done it all of... twice in my adult life.

Yeah there is a lot of mention of appliances... It's funny, our realtor is a friend of mine but sometimes I got the vibe that he just gets kick backs from all of these stupid services. I hate the housing game, I feel like realtors are full of :bs: and find it :mindblown: how much they clear per transaction when the attorneys really do all of the heavy lifting.
Depends on the state, actually. In MI, there's no requirement to use real estate lawyers, so realtors do pretty much everything. Ours is going to clear :fullretard: money, but she really did work her ass off. Our house did not sell easily and she worked for it.
Oh, dang, your house sold?

Yeah, I couldn't do the realtor thing. At least at a dealership, people have to come to you. For now.

I just am so :disgust: by sales in general right now.

There's nothing I'm passionate enough about in life to let it consume me. Working in an office does, and that's why WFH has been such a godsend to me. This morning for example, no meetings so wife and I enjoyed coffee outside watching the sunrise, then took the dog for a walk and relaxed. Boss called and asked for some stuff, so I'm cranking it out now before we go downtown for a quick lunch so I can get back by 2 for a meeting. The balance is fantastic, and I'm still getting all my required work done. I really want this to be the norm.

My parents are going to stay in FL for a while because they own a second home there and need to do upkeep, for her birthday I gave her USD along with a gift bag that is travel based, some of our ATMs at the bank I use dispense USD upon request and do the conversion so it's easy-peasy.

I sent it well after you mentioned a $6 credit so I'm dropping towards 2021 fees. Thanks again Dan!

So far. It did not sell easy, the market for $500k+ homes fell off a cliff in the Detroit area right when we listed it seems. Whatever.

We had to accept an offer contingent on the sale of the buyer's current house, which is a small/cheap house in a highly desirable part of town, so I'm not too concerned about that. The inspection came and went and we heard nothing, but they want a sewer scope done, which is happening tomorrow...so inspection must have gone OK if they want to blow another $500 to have the sewer looked at. Waste of money because the city offers a sewer line warranty for $7/mo and covers anything unlimited with no deductible. I've had the sewer line maintained with that warranty since we moved in, so I'm confident it'll be fine...but people are morans so you never know.

:rolleyes: This has been anything but easy, but there's light at the end of the tunnel.

Sales in general right now must be pretty rough. Buyers of anything are picky, sellers think everything they have is gold, no thanks.

Well, when prices are through the roof on everything, I'd be picky too.

I've looked at so many trucks during this ordeal and it's insane what sellers and dealers are asking for vehicles.

Same with houses.

It's relaxing now. My Zoom/Carvana offers went down over $1k each.

Side note, does the door repaint count as an "accident" or not?
