    So how do we get a situation where the median is flat and dollars-per-square-foot is rising? Buyers are substituting down in quality and buying smaller homes for the same amount of money.

    Or buying smaller homes at lower prices at the same payment due to rate increases...

    Isn't he talking about "Price/SqFt," not "monthly payment/SqFt?" In that case, rate increases would have no effect.

    Not really. All a realtor does is sign a contract, then wait for buyers to come along. All a buyer's agent does is hope someone comes along that wants to buy a house.

    What you wrote are attributes of a seller's agent. A buyer's agent works with people wanting to purchase homes, by presenting listings and driving clients to properties.

    What I would like to see happen is that sellers pay a flat fee to list, and those buyers that feel they need an agent pay for the agent themselves.

    But NAR would NEVER let that happen....

    NAR is not the problem, nothing requires anyone to use a realtor.

    Although all a realtor does for the seller is find a buyer, look at it from the buyer's point of view. The buyer is making a large financial transaction in a field the buyer knows little about. Pricing, contacts, inspections, appraisals, loan apps, titles, contingencies, and even basic home research are daunting to someone who has no experience in home buying. There is also a trust issue, since the buyer thinks he may be too ignorant about houses to prevent getting "ripped off" It is not "brainwashed sheeple" that may want assistance here, but just an average Joe who does not have the ability or time to become a home buying pro.

    Why do we still have Used Car Dealers? With the internet, why not all buy from private sellers?

    Why (and I do not know why) do we still have people pay so much for Word and Excel when LibreOffice is available? Unless one uses VBA, LibreOffice does everything these two products do, sometimes more. Same for Photoshop vs GIMP, Illustrator vs Inkscape, and so on.

    Comfort level.
