Greg Swann does not want you to see this video - "How to sell your home in black & white" by realestatezebra

Ending his career today, HP favorite (/sarcasm off) Greg Swann ("he who shall not be linked to") pissed off his fellow ramen eaters by ripping on this video from another six-percenter, lecturing his fellow bloggers as if he were king of the ramen eaters.

Needless to say, he's now universally recognized not just as a discredited hack, but as a jerk. Nice to see so many finally figure out what HP'ers have known for years.


Meanwhile, enjoy the video HP'ers. realtor dude's got a point. It's all about the price. Want to sell us your home? We don't care what you paid, and we don't care what you owe. We do care what the place would rent for, and what the price to income ratio is.

Now if the NAR would just get the message, and quit with the hilarious lies and distortion, we'd be getting somewhere.

I do not understand the "selling the house that you love" phenomenon. What possessions besides, apparently, houses, or, say, living things, do people get rid of that they love so much?

If you love the house, keep it. If you care about what happens to the house, keep it. Find a way. Otherwise, if yuo don't love the house enough to find a way to keep it, LET FREAKING GO already.

Perhaps if more people had taken it seriously we wouldn't have the housing mess we have now. But [we] aren't about delaying self gratification, we want it all, we want it now and gosh darnnit it's our God given birthright. Men fought and died so we could live in a "house on the hill/ with a bathroom I can play baseball in/ driving 15 cars"

Our President even told us if we didn't buy things the terrorists would win.

We as a collective richly deserve every last bit of defecation heading for our fan. If there was any justice it would be the "moneychangers" that take it first. Our forefathers would be ashamed of how we have handled the country they gave to us.

Any realtor in Phoenix who's still a realtor isn't just a dick ... he's DUMB.

I heard from a friend in Scottsdale who started dating a guy claiming to be a doctor, then found out he's been lying and is actually a realtor.

We all know everyone in Scottsdale has always lied about their job and income, but for the most part, realtors haven't because being a realtor in Scottsdale was somehow always considered cool.

You know it's bad when even Scottsdale realtors deny that they're realtors!!

So the point was?

Just as the homedebtors have gotten used to their artifically created lifestyles and don't want to give it up, so have the RE agents. They don't want to take a 30% paycut when prices drop that much. Sooner or later they both are going to have to face the inevitable.

And so it begins, Realtor's turn on each other.
Cool.

That was a classic self made video. Kudos to him! I'm sure it will get more play two years down the road when the SHTF! Watch you'll see Jay Leno, SNL, etc. replaying it and joking about how obvious it all was...

When Columbia crashed, NASA took a long time before acknowldeging that it was caused by a piece of insulation foam breaking away from the external tank.

Let us see how long NAR takes to acknowledge its mistake.

Greg Swann is an ass.

Is that too terse? Greg called people who disagreed with him Nazi Brownshirts. Time has proven that he was wrong and what do any of the attacked get? Censored.

Read the post very carefully. Greg cautions against offending the audience. Well gee Greg calling them flying monkeys isn't an offense?

Is That a Foot in Your Ass or is That the RE.NET

This quote…

Regardless of what I say here or elsewhere, the incestuously cliquish part of the RE.net will insist that it is talking only to itself. Okayfine. [sic] I am talking only to the ninety-and-nine. If your objective in reading BloodhoundBlog is to build and improve your business, do not do as they do. Don’t treat people as leads, and, whatever you do, don’t treat them like idiots. Don’t insult them to score points with your buddies. If you find you’ve stepped in shit, admit it at once, clean up what you can and move on. Greg Swann

… is proof that the ego of Greg Swann has been allowed to swell over. You’re absolutely right that we are often to polite in how we encourage others. In Lani’s post regarding the Black & White video you’ll note Lani’s point was not so much about the message of the message, but the delivery. I’m not sure how anyone can mistake an observation like that for bragging that it is the way forward or call it pandering. Many do not like being on camera- so here’s an alternative versus steal this idea for your own.

Frank you are a tool! your comments are just like saying EVERY girl in Newport Beach is a california airhead bimbo - statistically a lie- just like 99.9999% of your pathetic posts about a place where you couldnt hang and feel ok about yourself!

Ah, the brilliance of Swann:

"The BubbleBloggers will someday bawl balefully in private, but they will never, ever admit that they have been very publicly very foolish. You will know and I will know and in the secret chambers of their hearts they will know they were wrong all along. But as long as you don’t hold your breath waiting for that contrite admission of error, you should be fine."

PERFECT. This is just at the correct mental level for the bulk of Americanos to understand (we will need a spanish version for California though).

It is a little too complicated for Realtors and MSM dorks. I would take a short break in the presentation to play a video of something they can relate to, say a Realwhore giving a blow job to keep their attention focused.


Then, you should be O.K..

Greg is sooooo right. Please pay careful attention to his main point:

The superior beings (i.e. Reators®) need to be careful not to insult the "ordinary people."
