Barron’s Says It’s Time To Rent; Not So Fast!

Join our coalition of agents standing up to take back our industry.


A recent headline from Barron’s suggested that it’s time to rent in some of our major markets. One of the things we talk about constantly here at Never Ending Referrals is being a person someone can trust to interpret the market. Today I’m going to share some thoughts on this topic from Gary Keller’s recent speech at Family Reunion and how you can use some of his information to make a different case than what some of the national pundits are making.
