A common thread here? I’m not sure but finding it doesn’t sound too inviting. A real estate agent embroiled in just another “disclosure” case? How about showing up to real estate marketing seminar and the keynote speaker tells you to quit?

Disclosure cases are not that uncommon but can you imagine being taken to court because your buyers didn’t’ believe you got them the best deal? It happened to a buyer’s agent in California that was accused of negligent misrepresentation and breach of fiduciary duty for failing to disclose to his clients that two other homes in the neighborhood sold for less than what they paid. The jury quickly vindicated the agent but there was not binding authority outside the parties involved in this specific case.

Seth Godin, the author and founder of Squidoo.com, a leading social networking website, recently told a group of real estate agents at a Realtor conference that they should quit the industry and find another job. He then noted - now, if you’re still with me, you’ll be glad to know that the competition for attention just got smaller. The agents who built their business on low interest rates, easy money and speculation (the order takers) have left the building.

Oddly separated stories but there is a common thread – it is one of the hottest blogging sites in the real estate industry – RealBlogging.com.
