open letter to real estate agents and mortgage brokers.
i've had enough with house shopping, and we've been at it exactly one day. 3 houses and 3 agents that won't shut up or stop calling. i'm only being sorta friendly to you because i maaaay have an interest in the house and i simply don't like to be rude. other than that i don't like you and don't want to be buddy buddy with you. oh, and that thing you do, when we show no interest in the house and you say something like 'o i can get it for you for less, it's overpriced'... wtf?! already selling your clients down the river at the first hint of a lost sale? maybe you think we would believe you know of other overpriced houses at the hopes of working with us as a buying agent on other houses? no ****ing WAY would i work with you. ever. and don't worry about what we're pre-approved for, that's for us to know. we don't like to waste our time driving around looking at open houses. if we're here it's in our range.
and of course you all work with the best mortgage brokers, so you'll go ahead and pass our information along to them. you *******s are even worse. to be honest im pretty shocked the profession still even exists. you provide an unnecessary service and don't do anything a good web application shouldn't be able to do. get over yourselves. all that's really needed is someone to verify that what we say is factual. that's summer intern work.
so that's it. im ****ing over it already.
so ya... what do you all do? suck it up? avoid agents unless absolutely necessary?
i won't be able to check this thread much so have at it.
