Creating Wealth Real Estate Investing with Jason Hartman

Jason discusses a significant legal case that could reshape the real estate industry. The case involves allegations of price-fixing and antitrust violations by major players in the industry, including the National Association of Realtors. A Missouri jury found NAR and several big brokerages guilty of conspiring to inflate commissions, potentially resulting in a massive financial impact. Hartman provides insights into the real estate industry, the role of commissions, and the potential implications of the case. He believes the commissions are too high due to the industry's oversaturation, leading agents to spend a significant amount on marketing to secure transactions. He also suggests that technology platforms like Zillow could benefit from the case, as it may lead to a more direct relationship between buyers and agents.
