Why Yes, Refer Me … Anything that Allows You To Cash a Check for Doing Nothing

avatarthumbnail.jpgYou can’t even make some of this stuff up.

Someone asked on Trulia Voices whether they’re better off purchasing a detached home or a townhouse here in the Phoenix real estate market, whether the townhouse “is less of an investment” than a single-family detached home.

Here’s an extremely helpful answer from an agent in Virginia …

your local real estate agent can advise you. do you have one? do you need a referral?

And you wonder why people don’t trust real estate agents. “I don’t have a real answer for you but can refer you to someone who can. Of course, I’ll make them pay me a portion of their commission for doing nothing more than making it clear that I’m a bottom feeder.”

Dignity, people. That’s all I’m saying.

    All I could think of after post was the Dire Straits’ tune
    “Money for Nothing” 🙂

    This is why my referral fee is karma, and why I try not to leave dumba*s comments.

    Not a bad tune, Larry …

    Him … I’ve asked for more than karma and paid more than karma, but only when earned in some fashion. Trolling for referrals on Trulia Voices hardly qualifies.
