I’m a new realtor right now, at a young age in the Midwest. In a blue state. I’m beyond fucking shocked at the offers I’m receiving on some of our listings for absolute pieces of shit houses. I’m talking houses you can’t even live in and need to be destroyed are selling for 150K plus, on about .5 acres of land. It’s NUTS. you can 100 acres in Utah for 100K... what the fuck is going on? I got into real estate because I’m nearly certain in 5-10 years when everything hits the fan I’ll be able to scoop neighborhoods up for mere Bitcoins. I was trying to be ahead of the curve.

Someone I worked with is a real estate drone outside of Sacramento, said the Chinese investors are gone, she's selling houses to young people, nobody is having problems getting loans. Enough time has passed since the last crash for young people to just deal with the prices, and they make it work.

Completely false. The banks are 100 percent cucked right now by strict loan guidelines. Bought my home last year. I offered asking but the home came 25k under appraisal, selling appealed and the bank/appraiser told them to fuck off because of some shit tier homes that sold 10 miles from the home I bought.

They are selling. We listed two houses the other day, dumps, right next to eachother and we have THREE contracts asking to buy BOTH at one time, that was the contingency on the seller accepting the contract.

What I can say though is, it’s not millennials. We have almost NO millennial buyers except for the occasional teamster who makes 100K/year simply wrapping wires or working for an oil company etc. The other realtors in the office are all normie bluepill tier so I can’t openly talk like this with them.

I hate boomers so much. My mother inherited a house and money totaling a million dollars twenty-five years ago and instead of investing it, blew it all and refused to work. Now all the money is gone and she is asking me for money even though I'm also very poor. Same with my father. He married a fat accountant and she died 6 years later. He also inherited a million. Now he is blowing it just as hard.

I have three siblings. Four children total. Especially with my mother, her family spent generations as immigrants (Sweden) to build that up, with my grandfather being a judge before he got cancer. She just blew it all away. All she will leave for her 4 children is debt.

That's how boomers are, though. All they care about is their house in the suburbs and making sure their car will take them to wageslavery and Walmart. When they get old I'm not doing shit for them. I can't wait for boomers to die.
