Even the bubble bloggers (aka industry outsiders) are reacting to the commentary in the blogiverse (including Agent Genius’ take on the video).
Here are some reactions:
I find it quite amusing that such a simple concept can be so appalling to some people “in the business.” As an industry outsider and some-day home buyer, I find straightforward, honest content like this to be refreshing. If I was considering using an agent to sell a home and was shown this video, I would think “how nice that they are willing to be honest with me,” not “I love it when salespeople treat me like a moron.,” which is what Mr. Swann thinks “consumers” would say.
Excellent video, Tim. I should have a viewing party (with food and adult bevs) this weekend at my house for all the neighborhood who have had their homes on the market for 6+ months. You have to plant a seed to get anything to grow.
I like the way he pushes the message up and back to the camera. The music is comical too.
