Byron and Nicole are back discussing two big topics in the real estate industry.

Racket #1: Will this lawsuit unravel the industry?: bit.ly/reindustrylawsuit
The first topic is a lawsuit by a seller against NAR, Realogy, Home Services of America, RE/MAX, and Keller Williams. This seller states that they were forced to pay for the commission of the buyer’s agent. This raises a lot of questions including, does the real estate industry need to change its processes?

Racket #2: Millennial Homeowners have Regrets: bit.ly/millennialhomebuyersregret
Up to 63% of millennials have regrets about purchasing a home, according to a poll conducted by Bankrate. The top regret? Millennials were not fully prepared for all of the costs that come along with homeownership.
