You don’t want confrontation. You don’t want to get sucked into difficult arguments with your spouse, so when your wife and real estate agent collude, you give in, and sign your future away. Next thing you know, you’re paying for things like property taxes and home warranty insurance. Sadly, that’s the scene that was repeated in many households in the last few years. And till last year, everyone looked like a winner. With subprime mortgages less available in today’s climate, the blow to the real estate market is just beginning to be felt; it’s a much different story now, which makes this scene all the more ridiculous to watch today.
I’m sure you’ve seen this commercial floating around before. At this time, it’s pretty passe as it’s been replaced by the wailing and gnashing of teeth of people caught in the clutches of the disintegrating real estate market. It just shows you how things can turn on a dime within a short period of time; I remember catching this “Suzanne Researched This” commercial not that long ago and thinking, “Wow! Now that’s scary.” I thought whoever was behind this commercial had the nerve. Especially since I very well felt strongly how it was then the peak of the real estate bubble and it seemed obvious that there would be some serious payback down the road.
See for yourself and gnash your teeth too…. over what this has probably done to many homeowners today, or is it ex-homeowners? Oh, I’d suggest you watch this video here rather than at YouTube since over there, the comments are quite unsavory. Update: The ad has been pulled from YouTube but there are derivations of it still around. Here’s one of them.
