  • 16:58 – “As long as interest rates stabilize, even if they are 7.2 percent, 7.5 percent which is fairly high for what we’ve been used to 12 months ago when they were 3, sub 3 I think the market just wants normalization in interest rates and then that demand will slowly come in, whatever goes up must come down, whatever goes down must go up, we saw that with interest rates and the inverse in home pricing which is now starting to happen and then in 2 years guess what interest rates are going to probably drop again, so we like to say here marry the house, not the interest rate.”
  • 31:54 – “Buying and selling a home should not cost 6 percent that is so much money where 90 percent of the transaction is rinse and repeat regardless of the price of the home.”
  • 33:39 – “I’m buying a house right now using Homie and they’re giving me 50 percent of the buyer agent real estate commission as a rebate towards my closing costs, man that’s real cash that I don’t have to bring to the table, and that’s for many customers and consumers out there that’s the difference between buying a home and not, that’s the difference between the American dream and not, those are huge savings 20 thousand dollars on average if not more
