I mean, going to the movie. I know there's a TV series I have not seen it. It is so

Michele Cummins - PREC 3:12
good. Okay, when I was in Vegas at the MGM they always have the TV like CBS or whatever it is. It's a TV you you test the the the shows before they're usually out or when they're just coming out. But anyways, I always test the shows. I always go there when I'm in Vegas. It's always so much fun. But I always very critical about my Oh, I don't like this after because this or this or that or the writing because of this. There's always stuff I say but this one. They kept on highlighting change your cursor because I just had it up like 100% I like it the whole time. I'm like, I don't want to change it. I like it. I like it. I liked everything about it and everything. Like every actor, every story writing, the cinematography, the directing everything. It's so good

Curtis Pope 3:54
to have van from Reba as Harry Tasker. Now, I have a hard time seeing this guy who was a dumb football player on Rebbes TV show. I Oh, I didn't know that. That's now he's a super spy. That's neat. Yeah. Oh, cool. So um, you know, I gotta get past that. But I do. I it's one of my favorite army movies. So I'll have to give the show a try.

Michele Cummins - PREC 4:16
Yeah, I was watching Picard, the other day Thursday with Richard and I saw the clip. I got a little advertising of it. And he's like, skipping forward to the commercials because we recorded and I go go back to that. And it was it was the show I tested in Vegas. I'm like, it's already out. I didn't even know. I guess we'll have to give it a chance. You should you really should. I told him I said Richard, you got to record every show for me. Um, so I'm really nervous but excited about my 5k run. I'm going to attempt to run

Curtis Pope 4:46
we're going to start training like a month ago.

Michele Cummins - PREC 4:48
I was supposed to and I only started the other day. I only have like two days in this my third day.

Curtis Pope 4:56
Well, you know, we got two weeks at 29 Your body gets back into the muscle man. Real quick, you'll be fine two weeks

Michele Cummins - PREC 5:01
Curtis, that's all I have to train for this. I got to help raise money for the mission hospice society.

Curtis Pope 5:07
I just want to grab my bike and just kind of ride beside you just for the comedic value of putting two weeks of training in for

Michele Cummins - PREC 5:14
Come on. You should do it with me. I played

Curtis Pope 5:17
softball last weekend for the first time in forever. It almost killed me you want me to like and that was the practice. Oh my gosh, let's roll my ankle a little bit because I'm on the field was not in a great creative shape of course and I managed to find a pothole but still, like you want me to run?

Michele Cummins - PREC 5:32
Well, I have to say I have better stamina like endurance than I do strength. So hopefully I'll be okay and won't kill myself. But well, good

Curtis Pope 5:40
luck to you.

Michele Cummins - PREC 5:41
Thank you. Thank you, April 2,

Curtis Pope 5:43
can you can you livestream it so we can see how you're doing?

Michele Cummins - PREC 5:46
I really should. Oh, would I look like a geek? If I wore my GoPro on my forehead, like a like a spelunking, like helmet?

Curtis Pope 5:54
My first reaction is that's what's gonna make you look like a geek. But no. I think when you're running, all bets are off. You just do what you got to do. I don't think anybody's judging you when you're running.

Michele Cummins - PREC 6:05
Do it do what you had to heritage to have sick? Here I come exactly. Okay, so the Bank of Canada as we know, they're holding their rates. And what's really neat what I've just heard from Alex cote, you know, him mortgage broker in Abbotsford here, he was saying that, yeah, it for probably the first three quarters of this year, they're going to probably hold the rate and inflation looks like it's still slowing down, and it's still going to be good. I think they're estimating 3% By the end of the year, possibly. So 1% higher than the goal of 2%. But it's at least better than it was and hopefully that sustains and keeps our mortgage rates from going up any further. But he says maybe the first three quarters, it won't be moved. So that's good. But what about the banks in the US? Isn't that really scary? What's happening?

Curtis Pope 6:55
The government's, you know, bailing them out to a point, I guess, but it's scary that the banks are, are faltering down there and everything else and that, you know, I mean, we we've had that happen before where they've had problems there. And I remember the big crash and real estate down south there. What about, you know, 1012 years ago, which you were just in Vegas, remember, hit Vegas really hard, where homes that were half $1,000,000.06 $100,000 homes, were now worth 125,000, and stuff like that for a while.

Michele Cummins - PREC 7:25
Yeah, and you know, what the the US lending system for mortgages was so different than and then they had that big Fallout, black hole. And then they they fixed and repaired a lot of their approval, and how they did their mortgage process, looking at Canada as the shining star app, because we are really good and tight with our lending. And then we got him in tighter after that as well. So my next question about, you know, how, what do you think of that, but what about like this debate? The banks are going bankrupt, literally, but down there, but is there gonna be a butterfly effect you think in Canada?

Curtis Pope 8:00
Well, that's always the question, because often what happens in the US, in some regard will affect what we have going on up here. But now, how is it going to affect that? Well, you're the expert. I'm supposed to be asking you these questions. I

Michele Cummins - PREC 8:12
think again, we are so strong our lending rules and regulations here in Canada. They're so tight. They're so good. Literally, I that word why I said it twice. Now. I don't like that word. But anyways, I have this app on my phone. It's a word of the day app. And I keep on looking at a new word every day, but I have to start using them. Because just looking at them are no good.

Curtis Pope 8:35
App to tell you different words.

Michele Cummins - PREC 8:37
Don't use the word literally. You're gonna make me sad. So no, but yeah, so I don't think we're gonna have any butterfly effect. I think we're pretty good here. So hopefully, hopefully, I have that crystal ball and I'm right. But we'll see time will tell and it's the spring market. We are March we're ending March. Now. We might as well call it into March. We've already sprang forward and the market has sprung forward to I've had a couple multiple offers on some of my listings. It has been busy. And I've got lots of pending offers and lots happening. So that's really good. We

Curtis Pope 9:11
saw the uptick in prices too. So things look to be rebounding.

Michele Cummins - PREC 9:15
Yes. And last week we had our stats show our monthly stat show so if you didn't get to see it or hear it, go onto our YouTube or our podcasts and have a look at that show from last week. But yeah, all of its there sit on my website on my blog as well. All the stats, but yeah, so I wanted to say yesterday for St. Patrick's Day I had this saying my quote yesterday and our quote later today is something you challenged me on last week so you were gonna get your Elvis quote later Victor so you know Curtis, but yesterday was trying to buy or sell a house without a realtor is like trying to find a four leaf clover. Luckily, I'm here to help. And it's true. So call me if you're looking to sell or buy.

Curtis Pope 9:57
I like that. I think some of the most effective TV commercials I've seen in a long time was those realtor commercials? They were running last three or four years, you know where you didn't use a realtor who you know they've got like the heavy metal festival behind them or, or whatever else going on and just like I always love the reactions and it's it's so true, right? Like,

Michele Cummins - PREC 10:15
the Max has a lot of great real estate commercials. They're funny they've got comedy, which is nice. Well, we've

Curtis Pope 10:20
got that new one where the where the dad's dad's planning you know, the house inspection he's looking at

Michele Cummins - PREC 10:27
listening to the wall. Yeah, those walls can talk.

Curtis Pope 10:29
That's right. That's a go you don't We don't dad slang. You know, we have realtors that are experts. Exactly. I mean, you if you want to get you don't go to a guy that fixes your tires, if you're hurt your shoulder, exactly. You go to a doctor, you go somebody who has been trained and as a professional, and this has countless hours of experience here,

Michele Cummins - PREC 10:48
hence, the 10,000 hours and they call it. Absolutely. So talking about listings, or buying. I'm going to mention some of my listings right now, before we go on break. And then afterwards, when we come back, you know, we're going to talk about you don't caught us by surprise every week.

Curtis Pope 11:05
You've even changed the order around, which really is throwing change the name you change

Michele Cummins - PREC 11:09
the order. How many times I have to tell you life is about change

Curtis Pope 11:12
when we met her time and she changes the pitch and hold on

Michele Cummins - PREC 11:15
to it. No, there's some things that shouldn't change. And that's one of them. Okay, so when we come back from the break, we're actually going to be talking about gee, what's that GPS that GP? GPT? Thank you. GPT. There's only three letters in that word. So we're going to be talking about how it affects the real estate markets. And that is going to be interesting. Okay, so the first one exclusive listing. What's an exclusive listing you ask if you didn't ask? continue listening anyways. So an exclusive listing is one that is not advertised on the MLS. It's not advertised, it is called

Curtis Pope 11:46
a pocket listing?

Michele Cummins - PREC 11:48
Yes, you called it. That is a pocket listing? Absolutely. It means a realtor who has that exclusive listing has the exclusive rights to sell it, but not market it and advertise it. So it's a little different. Why would somebody want an exclusive listing you ask? Well, one, maybe they don't want their family to know, their sewing. Maybe there's some, you know, personal reasons. They don't want it out there for the world to see. Or they could be more of a celebrity, or somebody who again, wants privacy. There's many reasons why somebody would want an exclusive listing

Curtis Pope 12:24
touching the market even maybe not 100% Sure they want to sell but maybe if the prices are high enough, maybe this time move, things like that, I guess it would come into play.

Michele Cummins - PREC 12:31
Yeah, yeah, absolutely. And maybe the end user, the end buyer is somebody who wouldn't want it advertised either or marketed because privacy. So maybe that type of property is good for that. But this exclusive listing I have is actually Maple Ridge, it's 16 acres, it's off to 64th and ABAX on 1/16. It has two road axes. It's divided in half by connect Creek and it is a really cool Creek. It's for sale for 1.8 million, and the sellers are willing to do a vendor take back mortgage. So that's a sellotape back mortgage, they're willing to do it of up to $1 million of the property at 8.9% This is a great opportunity to get into the acreage housing and property market without having to get approved for a mortgage if you have a good down payment so it's something to look at because if you're getting a vendor take back mortgage lots of investors that's the way they do it because it's you can only lend so much from the banks the banks will only lend you so many properties and then you have to start doing vendor take back mortgages to leverage your investments. So anyways, that's a great opportunity so call me if you're interested in that exclusive listing there's a house on it there's a garden workshop on it there is a cabin cottage let's call it on it great Airbnb space as well attached to the house so there's lots of opportunities in this property. Okay, so then I've got a new one in Europe, and I'll talk to you about that one.

Curtis Pope 13:52
Okay, we can do that. So if people want to see the listings you have and maybe want to find your stats things like that. Where can they go so We're back with more right after this?

Charm got it right. And, of course with Michelle Cummings and myself Curtis Pope now you had another listing to talk about you had your pocket listing there And now you have another list that we want to talk about. Yeah, Yarrow, who doesn't love Yarrow anytime with three liquor stores within about a block. That's my kind of town

Michele Cummins - PREC 15:08
what a great location next to the mountains and Cultus lake. And my, my mom and my mom mother in law, she was pretty much raised their her whole family, there's a street called Bergman and that's named after my mother in law's family. Well, there's

Curtis Pope 15:25
a ham road now it's are named after my mom's side of the

Michele Cummins - PREC 15:27
fence, I knew we had something in common. Okay, so this 112 year old central road, and it's beautifully built custom 2008. It's five bedrooms, it's two full bathrooms. It's almost 12,000 square foot lot, which is really nice. Over quarter acre, the house is almost 3000 square feet. It's got tons of parking, it definitely does have a detail attached double garage, but also has RV parking. And it is gorgeous. So if you want that everyone have a look at that. Call your realtor Call me if you don't have one and it's 1,000,189 999 price point on that one. Okay, so that is the new listing. For today. I wanted to talk about the G P t, we wanted to know how is going to affect the real estate market some things to consider. So do I need to disclose questions have been asked? Well, I

Curtis Pope 16:20
guess the first thing for people that maybe don't know what GPT is thank you expresses artificial intelligence. And there's various programs for there's even a radio one out there. Oh, really? I can be replaced? No, you can have a GPT host with you asking probably smarter questions I

Michele Cummins - PREC 16:39
asked you will it sound like you

Curtis Pope 16:41
know why you won't screw up, it'll, it'll lose the human factor won't use literally all the time won't use literally all the time, it won't screw up the name of the show. So I think we're good. But AI is coming a long way. And you know what, there's nothing to be afraid of when it comes to AI because there's so many advancements that can can happen with AI like when you think about what AI can do for medical, because AI can continue to work on things when researchers need brakes and stuff like that. AI can assist to continue. And there's a lot of great potential with artificial intelligence. There's some scary stuff too, if you've seen the Terminator movies. And who hasn't. It's not the Skynet we're talking about here, hopefully. But GPT is something now that's you know, yeah, it's it's out there and a lot of different ways. So yeah, I'm interested to hear how you say it can affect, you know, real estate. Yeah,

Michele Cummins - PREC 17:28
yeah. Especially now in the kind of just let's call it the beginnings, the birth of it. And of course, it's going to get wiser and smarter and just be crazy as it goes on. But I haven't tried it yet for remarks. I want to try it on one of my listings for the public remarks. I have not done it yet. We're allowed 800 characters and I'm going to do that though. Maybe my next listing

Curtis Pope 17:48
my boss's a joke wrote me my, my firing letter through chat, GBT? No, it was really well done in professional.

Michele Cummins - PREC 17:58
What you're getting fired.

Curtis Pope 18:02
Started write a letter of you know, yeah, I'm fine. I'm firing Curtis or whatever. And we're reading it. We're laughing our heads off because it was it was prone.

Michele Cummins - PREC 18:10
That is funny. My brother in law wrote a song about Richard. He. He told him just a few things. Yeah, the chat GPT and it spit out a song. And I'm telling you, it has all a song would have. It's it's beautiful. I told Richard, he should actually record it.

Curtis Pope 18:27
I liked that. Yeah, you better record it before the software can record themselves.

Michele Cummins - PREC 18:31
Oh, yeah, totally true. And take his voice. So do you need to disclose? So even more queries chat GPT can't answer. So yeah, it can be useful tool. But it spits out a lot of bad advice at this point in part two of the series. And we're going to talk about the other one as well. So there's two will the other ones like five things buyers actually put in chat GPT and what it spits out, so it's chat GPT and other AI chat bots have exploded on the scene. Realtors are now having to confront an avalanche of expert advice riddled with half truths and misinformation more than ever. Realtors must be prepared to be the trusted adviser who helps their clients avoid following chatbot and generated misinformation that can lead to litigation. So that's the thing when you're talking about legal stuff, and you're relying on this, this information, if you don't edit it, and check it and do all that it can be pretty bad. Or if you're just using like a Google search for it and relying on that information. It's like having a huge health issue or you're having a health issue, and you Google results. And you're like, you get all scared and

Curtis Pope 19:38
you're always dying. Oh, you ever Google your symptoms? You have a cold, but you'd google it now you're dying? Yeah.

Michele Cummins - PREC 19:46
Oh, so. So first, has there been a recent appraisal on the property? So that's one of the questions. So perhaps the most troubling thing that chat GPT and other chat bots do is to hedge their bets by saying As a language model, I cannot provide legal advice and then immediately provide information that often constitutes legal advice. So the paragraph down here that I'm going to show you illustrates the point. So I'm gonna read it as a language model. This is chat GPT I cannot provide legal advice. However, in general, the disclosure requirements regarding an appraisal depend on the laws and regulations of the state or country where the property is located. So far, so good, but then it advises, therefore, the listing agent should consult with a licensed real estate attorney in the relevant jurisdiction for specific guidance on disclosure obligations. So agents are trained on disclosures and that obligation and what needs to be disclosed and I always say as a habit disclose, disclose, disclose there's, you know, an aunt, or whatever, you have an aunt, oh, maybe it's an animal infested infrastructure infestation or anything, just disclose. It's always better a buyer always rather know and have it explained to them exactly what's happening, then then find out later on, you don't want any issues and as a buyer, you make a stronger better buying decision when you know what you're getting into. So the next statement have additional errors as well. Here goes. In some jurisdictions, sellers are required to disclose any material facts that may affect a buyers decision to purchase the property and appraisal can be considered a material fact if it provides information that could affect a buyers decision to purchase the property or the price they're willing to pay. In such cases, the seller may be required to disclose the appraisal to potential buyers. If there is any uncertainty about whether the appraisal needs to be disclosed, the listing agent should err on the side of caution and disclose it. Additionally, if the appraisal is still relevant and reflective of the property's value, it may be beneficial to share it with potential buyers to help support the asking price. So the correct response is different than that. Whether something qualifies as a material fact as a legal issue, agents should never attempt to make that determination. So whether you're an agent or you're a buyer or your seller using chat GPT for legal information, please do not rely on it is my is my message here today. So Inman is a real estate professional body and and that is just them may this article is is to disclose some of the issues with chat GP. So do I need to disclose any issues with the property to potential buyers and so, a GPT correctly advised that listing agents have a legal and ethical obligation to ensure that all material facts about the property disclose to potential buyers material facts are any issues that may affect the value or the health of the property? Therefore, the answer to the question, do I need to disclose issues with the property to potential sellers is yes, the listing agent should advise their seller to disclose any known issues with the property to potential buyers. So some of those things I won't go on with this. There's a few more examples like what is the square footage of the property questions? What are the fees and commissions for selling my home? The other question, how should listing agents disclose the current property tax information on their listing? So these are just if you want the article, you can ask me for it. And I'm happy to send it to you. Because you do have to pay for a membership and so I can explain that to you. So the other thing is how, Okay, how's the neighborhood? Five buyer queries chat GPT gets really wrong. So this one's for buyers. This is so much fun.

Curtis Pope 23:32
addresses at Hastings and main in Vancouver. It's a lovely neighbor, department store right here buy that 100 years ago. Yeah, yeah,

Michele Cummins - PREC 23:39
exactly. Because it's taken all the information it knows. Um, so let's just get to the actually questions and what is the condition of the property? Okay, so chat. GPT says if the agent has personally viewed the property, they can describe any visible defects or issues that they have noticed, such as signs of wear and tear or damage or needed repairs. They can also provide information on the age and condition of major systems and components such as the roof, age, back electrical, plumbing and appliances. The correct response is, when buyers inquire about the condition of the property, the only correct answer is to advise them to hire their own inspector and to do their own due diligence under no circumstance should agents try to evaluate any of the homes systems or components, nor should they attempt to determine an age and condition of those systems. And this is really important because we are realtors, we're not accountants, we're not lawyers, we're not h back specialists. We we we, we aren't those things so definitely do your due diligence when you're buying a property and and and I will enter that on that one. So what are the average closing costs and how much should I expect to pay? This is a question so Traci Petit says for a homebuyer typically closing costs may include fees for the mortgage loan such as an application fees, appraisal fees and loan origination fees. Other costs may include title search and insurance fees survey fees, property taxes and homeowners insurance on average, buyers can expect to pay between 3070 500 In closing costs for home sellers typically closing costs may include fees for the real estate agent title search and insurance fees, transfer taxes and attorney fees. On average, sellers can expect to pay between 1% and 3% of the sale price of the home and closing costs. The correct response is Chad GPT correctly states that types of fees are included in the closing costs for the buyer. But as soon as it veers off into stating the potential amounts of closing costs, it's now providing the consumer and agent with information that's highly regulated by SRID. Trade was implemented in 2015 with the purpose of harmonizing the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act RESPA. And Truth in Lending Act Tila disclosures and regulations. So there are and also, I'm adding here, there are different fees, and there's different things for every state for every province. So again,

Curtis Pope 26:10
every you know, with us everything like every round the world and the AI is going to be not specifically searching probably Canada.

Michele Cummins - PREC 26:17
Exactly. And even in your own hometown, different brokerages. There's something called the Competition Act, and different brokers, different agents, we can all charge different things. So there's no average commission like so is asking how much is it going to cost me? Well, the best people to ask are the actual professionals that you need. So a realtor in your local area will know what you need. And then you were to call to get an A price point. Some lawyers and notaries charge different. Even the lawyers with lawyers charge different at notaries to notaries like everything's different. So

Curtis Pope 26:52
for experiencer, too, if you've got a lawyer that's been practicing for 35 years, they're probably going to charge something more than somebody who's two years into their practice.

Michele Cummins - PREC 27:00
Exactly. And what if you're buying a mobile home or a strata or a detached and what if you're buying something that has a mortgage on it doesn't have mortgage or you're gonna have a mortgage or you're not gonna have a mortgage, all these things will make the price point different so that so don't rely on that. So getting to the neighborhood, let's end it with that. So what is the neighborhood like? Okay, Chad GBT says the realtor should provide a detailed response that covers all the important factors that the buyer is likely to be interested in, such as the safety of the area, local amenities, public transportation and property values. The realtor should also use data and statistics to support their response such as crime rates, school ratings and property appreciation rates, correct response would be there are multiple issues with the GPS GPT statement that I just mentioned. So the Crash Response, steering under the Fair Housing Act is the process of influencing a buyers choice of communities based upon the buyers race, color, religion, gender, disability, family status, or national origin, steering on the basis of any of the characteristics defined under the Fair Housing Act is not only unethical, it's illegal, because it limits the housing opportunities available to that buyer. So these kinds of things neighborhood, you know, you shouldn't take personal advice on things like that, you should actually find out for yourself what's important, what is important to you, what do you need?
