Real Estate for Dummies (Y2/M3/D13)

I just came across this video clip. I'm not sure where to start. There's so much information in it. My tiny woman brain might implode. I need a professional to help me understand all the information that is in this video. If only there were a professional video watcher who would watch it and narrow down the information so I could understand it. Woe is me. I am overwhelmed!

Give these guys a break... Some people really need the help and some people are OK on their own. I think it was to a very general audience...

I totally agree that there are people who do not have time to house hunt on their own. That is absolutely true.

But that is really not what this video is about. The agent featured in this video says there is just too much information out there for a buyer to comprehend. It compares house hunting to reviewing SEC documents and choosing stock. It says that while any buyer can find a house, they need an agent to tell them which house is right for them.

The take home message is: "Dear Buyer, you are stupid."

Interesting how one can interpret my answer to a simple question. I never meant to imply that anyone is "stupid". Although after reviewing my "off the cuff" response, I can see how it could be interpreted that way if you wanted to find the worst possible interpretation. I simply tried to compare buying a stock forty years ago to buying a stock today. Compared with buying a home 15 years ago to buying a home today. Because of the internet we have more information to review. Because of "our" more hectic lifestyle we have less time to analyze.
Yes, you can buy a stock on your own and yes, you can buy a home for sale by owner but with todays "information overload", I believe (most people)will be better served working with a full-time qualified agent/stock broker. Thanks for keeping me on my toes:)
