You know, I wish the real estate board would just say, "you know what, let's not turn the business into a reality TV show"

 Miller said the Seller’s Market chose the competing realtors according to several criteria. One is knowlegde. “Basically, we wanted to choose the best possible realtors in the area,” he said. Others include presentability and personality, he said. All of the competing realtors have unique personalities, he said. “They are all very different people,” he said.

 

While all five realtors are very professional and respectful towards each other, they are also fiercely competitive, an unexpected development. “We didn’t know how competitive these realtors would be on the show,” said Miller.

Each episode features four of the five realtors talking with prospective clients. Each episode records their respective pitches to the clients, as well as the deliberations of the would-be sellers. The show then catches up with everybody.

With the Mango Menace in the White House, pretty much everything has become a reality TV show.

Huh, that's an interesting reverse take on House Hunters, I guess. Seems like free publicity for those 5 realtors/agencies.

 

Marko, thoughts on this?

But what will our nation's collective Moms watch on Sunday afternoons if they don't have real estate-based reality shows?

Finding the most knowledgeable ones? I think they mean gregarious or entertaining? How much knowledge do you need to be a realtor?

 Get off their fat arses, and go outside to the park with their kids...just like their parents did back in a 12 channel universe..

Not if they are paying to be on the show.

But my mother's kids are 27 and 29 and live far away from her! Is she doomed to wander the park aimlessly for the rest of her life?

Interesting read. Sounds to me like his assumption for the amount of speculative demand is too high. We'll see.

That, and also I don't think he's accounting for other factors, such as the uptick in condo and townhouses sales in Vancouver now, as well as the typical spring bump.

 

Not sure about Toronto, I don't follow that market at all.

The market sets the price.   Individual realtors above a minimum level of competence don't have the power to influence selling price except perhaps with very unique properties that have a limited pool of buyers and require specialized marketing.

Whichever of the 5 realtors are chosen for a property, it will sell for market price (or not sell, if it's overpriced).

The one with the better portrait on the bus stop bench and the fancier car always gets a better price. Everyone knows that! Now if they have a catchy slogan...watch out...
