Rapping real estate agents bust out good advice
As the housing market continues to recover, some in the business are celebrating with a few choice rhymes.
One San Diego agent is getting some attention for rapping his way through the housing crisis and the nascent market recovery. His online debut follows a rap from a Virginia agent waxing poetic about "houses gettin' sold."
Over in San Diego, Rafael Perez has made 50 videos about his business, but his friends and coworkers declared them a little bland, he tells 10News.com.
He decided to try a rap video, and made it himself in his office with an phone, tripod, a green screen and video editing software. The results are pretty hilarious. The lyrics, however, are spot on:
"The rules of real estate are no longer the same,OK, he may be missing a rhyme here and there. Not so with Brian Block, the Virginia agent who employs a litany of rap cliches in his production of "Houses Gettin' Sold." Check it, yo:
Basic fundamentals are the name of the game.
It's not about buy, hold, and flip for rookies,
It's about building a home or possitive cash flow." [sic]
"On the market FridayHe was referring to a condo in the Ballston subdivision in Arlington, Va. Block explains the market a little more on his blog: "Inventory of homes for sale is extremely tight in Northern Virginia -- at last look there's just over one month supply of homes on the market," he wrote "Same goes for DC. In fact, right now, much of the country is having a similar phenomenon in the local real estate markets."
Ballston condo's like gold
Two days, five offers
And we got it sold."

[BRIEFING.COM] The drive for five continued today and it was a success. For the fifth straight session, the S&P 500 ended lower. Like the previous four sessions, though, the losses were fairly modest in scope. The S&P 500 declined 0.4%, bringing its total loss for the five sessions to 22 points or 1.2%. All in all, that still qualifies as a pretty tame slide considering the S&P 500 had risen 150 points, or 9.1%, over the previous eight weeks.
