Zillow & HGTV and how they have effed up real estate




Scott is really HGTV & I am Zillow – alot like Donny & Marie…She’s a little bit country and he is a little bit rock & roll.

Zillow & HGTV

How Joanna Gaines & Al Gore have effected our real estate market.


Joanna & Chip Gaines – Fixer Upper 

My belief is that HGTV is had far more impact on our business than Zillow. Buyers, although there are more of them than there are houses, are very picky about the condition and the look and the quality of the home. Joanna Gaines has single-handedly fudged the system for many sellers. Folks want gray walls.. or greige walls and not blue walls. Period. They want new sinks, faucets, baths, roofs, hvac, ship lap and they want it at a discount. They don’t/cant pay for it themselves. Many new home buyers have great credit and no cash, hence the discount. Scott is our person that tells the seller.. this is what buyers want. This is what you can get for your house if you put a little more $$$ into it and do it fast… If you don’t, you miss the market.


Zillow & Its Zestimate 

Zillow can’t get inside the house.. so there numbers are false. How false is up for debate and the market. Zillow has found a niche that no one has been able to beat. Valuing a home and not calling it an appraisal. An appraisal requires a license and education. Zillow uses an “al gore rhythm” to provide the #zestimate. Buyers like to use the number, or #zestimate, as a tool to negotiate. My personal opinion is that Zillow is for entertainment. All real estate is local.  Zillow only can look at numbers.  It is automated.  Zillow doesn’t know if you have 17000 mountain dew cans inside of your house or not.  Folks have been tried to sue Zillow for messing up values and buying/selling opportunities and Zillow has proven itself to be teflon.  See elow to see a bedroom full of #mountaindew cans.

We talk inflation, mortgage rates, monetary spending… kind of not funny funny… Not as bad as if Angus & I sang the National Anthem… in our sexy lounge singer voice.. You get the picture.  How does monetary policy, “full” employment, higher wages and interest rates effect rentals, investments and buying or selling a home… You ask.. we answer 🙂

Our Garnet & Gold is always fun & sassy.

Here is Jeremy’s platform:

  • Investment in the South Side and underserved areas to bring development, opportunity, job and business training to all corners of our city;
  •  Reform in city policy so no small business dream dies in permitting;
  • Clean & honest campaign finance by refusing to accept contributions from political committees and big business groups; and
  • Policies that put working and middle-class families first.We can have an open and honest city government. We can have an inclusive city that provides equal opportunity, no matter your ZIP code or school district. We can change the way City Hall operates to reflect our priorities.

proof brewing




Our Garnet & Gold segment featured Proof Brewing Creatures in the Dark Stout for     Patty.  I really like this stout.  It was sweet and tangy.  For me, the finish was definitely coconut.  It is a white chocolate, cinnamon, coconut stout.  It was delicious.  It would have been great after a meal or in a flight with other beers.  I didn’t taste the white chocolate and you could smell the cinnamon.  Angus says @proof is a movement!


Angus chose Bimini Twist IPA from Three Daughters Brewing.   If you listen, you know Angust LOVES IPA beers.  Angus told us the hops makes the IPA refreshing like a bimini sea breeze… He sell it, doesn’t he???  The brewery is located in St. Petersburg, FL .  I think the logo and the can are beautiful!!!

Once again!! Thank you for listening!!
