either way. 6 weeks of work to save from what I understand about 10-20 grand worth of commission? I mean if the market is so "hot" here, and people are knocking on peoples doors asking to buy, more people should do it.

You pay an agent to list the property for you in exchange for a fee.

Google flat fee MLS listing

here's one example

MLS Listing By Owner Vancouver, Flat Fee MLS British Columbia, For Sale By Owner | One Flat Fee MLS Listing

Realtors and the whole industry just blows me away.

Assets:

You have a website. It's a good website. Good traffic

You have multiple branch locations in every major town and city.

You have a large group of people of varying skills that run all over town selling shit using the terms "sprucing".

And for that, people are happy to support your monopoly, and hand you huge stacks of cash on the sale of every home in town. People don't even think about it...its just a cost of doing business.

BUT, here's the problem. If you don't use them, you can sit on your house for months. The first place people go is the MLS site. Your privately listed house isn't there.

So, that's fine, you have a "sale by owner" sign. And everyone drives by thinking "whats wrong with it". Oh, and then, "I'll have to fill out the paperwork myself!".

It's free for the buyers, so why wouldn't they work with a realtor?

Of course, in reality, it is the buyer paying everything, but its also the seller getting less...but you know..

In reality, home buying is a big f'ing mess. I don't like. I can use a computer and read forms. Get out of my way. I want cheap houses.

Buyer's agent gets 46.5% of the commission + HST
Seller's agent gets 53.5% of the commission + HST (because he has more expenses than the buyer's agent, my agent had to pay his agency + REBGV for listing on MLS)

All of this can be negotiable...
Yes, and when you hammer your agent too much, the buyers agents just won't show your house.

Airport Cheerleaders in Dalian China



Airport cheerleaders an added perk? - CNN.com

Quote:
(CNN) -- While some Chinese travelers storm the tarmac when flights get delayed, others might wish their flights never take off -- assuming they're flying from the northeast China city of Dalian.

To entertain waiting passengers, Dalian International Airport recently recruited a squad of cheerleaders to perform kicks, jumps and splits in the airport's main hall.

During massive fog-related delays in Dalian last week, the cheerleaders' pom-pom routines "soothed emotion and alleviated fatigue" for more than 5,000 stranded fliers, according to the Dalian Evening News.

The cheerleading show is part of the airport's effort to "bring more convenience to passengers in the summer-autumn air season," said Zhen Qun, an airport official.

It's also a way for the Dalian airport to "demonstrate spirit and shoulder social responsibility," according to an airport press release.

The airport has launched a series of other innovative services, including free physical checkups and instant weather and flight updates by text message.

Zhen did not discuss the daily schedule of cheerleader shows, but the airport has staged at least one performance every day in the past week, each lasting two to three hours, with breaks.

"The cheerleaders are enrolled in different colleges in Dalian. We hire them on a work-for-study program," added Zhen. "The performance is free of charge for passengers."

Agents still need brokerages and that's like another course & you can't become a broker until 2years after being an agent or something like that

my buddy became an agent and he blabs on and on about it but i usually ignore it
