Bum Rap Against Realty Agents, Sellers

January 06, 1991

Here are two thoughts I'd like to share. The greedy homeowners overpricing their homes are not able to sell them, which in turn makes it tough to twist a "knife" in anyone. Secondly, my wife and I made $53,000 per year when we bought our condo for $112,000 a little over a year ago.

She is a dietitian and I was a grocery clerk. We have been married two years and are both 29 years old. We lived in a small one-bedroom apartment in Santa Barbara renting for $605 a month to save for that elusive down payment. It was not easy but we knew what we wanted.

I am now one of those "greedy real estate agents" you so wrongly described. I would love to sit down with you and your wife and show you the many ways that are available for you to get into the housing market.

Quit looking at $300,000 homes and start looking for what you can afford.
