Million Dollar Listing Not Real

Posted by on Apr 8, 2014 in Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s a great show, entertaining and full of characters however it’s not reality.   We should know by now, entertainment “reality” shows are anything but reality.

Here is an article based on the claim of a Million Dollar Listing agent that is refuted by the actual Developer/Seller of the building that is being discussed.  Please take these shows with a grain of salt, and if you list with one of these agents based on what you see on television, you’ll get something other than what you see on television.

Real estate is becoming more and more high-tech these days, with many brokers blogging, tweeting, and posting photos to Instagram to lure in investors.

But, according to NestSeekers agent Ryan Serhant, one of his most recent sales really takes things up a notch.

According to New York Magazine, Serhant said he recently closed a $13 million deal solely using WeChat, a popular Chinese social networking site. Serhant said that an unnamed buyer used the site to message the team, ultimately buying two units at the yet-to-be-completed Baccarat Hotel & Residences on West 53rd Street in New York City.

One unit was a three-bedroom residence costing $10 million; the other was a $3 million one-bedroom apartment, according to Serhant.

“This price for a deal that was done and initiated 100 percent through social media and across the world?” he said to NY Mag. “A complete stranger who learned about us via social media and basically gave us $13 million and change to invest in something that’s not even been built yet in a city they’ve never even been to? I don’t think [anyone else has done that].”

Serhant estimated that about 25 of his sales in the last year have come through social media, though the Baccarat sale is the biggest by far.

The hotel and luxury condo building is set to open in the next few months and is one of the most highly anticipated projects of the year. There will be 61 residential units, ranging from one to five bedrooms, in addition to a 115-room hotel. Glittering crystal decorations are a highlight throughout the building, and a five-star restaurant is also in the works.

A representative from Baccarat contacted Business Insider with the comment that no units have been sold through NestSeekers or Serhant. We’ve reached out to NestSeekers for confirmation.
