New York Times real estate real estate agent Paul F. Bowers has been quoted as saying that his clients “will get the money, but they will be looking at a lower paycheque.”
Bowers, who is currently an agent for Realtor.com, made the comments in an interview with the Daily Mail on Wednesday.
Bower also suggested that clients might pay up to 30 percent more in taxes if they pay higher rents.
Bowers, the co-founder of the real estate brokerage, real estate company, Realtor.net, and the realtor industry website, Realtors.com said, “If they [real estate agents] are asking me, ‘What is the price of a unit?’ and I’m like, ‘Well, I don’t know.’
It depends on the person, but it depends on how much I can charge them, and it depends if I can get the unit.”
Bower added that real estate agents are not obligated to provide real estate appraisal services to clients.
“If they say, ‘Oh, you have to tell me if there’s any tax consequences,’ then it’s my job to tell them that.
And if I don, it’s your job to find out.
It’s your duty to know,” he said.
Realtors has been criticized in recent years for offering too high rents, and in 2016, the company was forced to cut 10,000 jobs in an effort to improve profitability.
While Bowers was speaking to the Daily Mirror, he also told the Daily Telegraph that he believes the government is responsible for the rental market in the United States.
“It’s a government-created problem,” he told the paper.
“The government wants to make sure we can buy more houses, they want to make us happy, they can keep the government money and get a better deal for everybody.
The real estate industry has been in the spotlight in recent months, as the housing market has been affected by the economic downturn.
In February, Betson said that the realtors had been forced to take on more workers as mortgage brokers and other contractors have struggled to make ends meet.
After the financial crisis hit in 2008, the housing crisis was exacerbated by a lack of rental inventory and the housing market was quickly filled with empty houses.
On Tuesday, Bowers told the Mirror that “there are a lot of people who are desperate for houses.
They’re looking for a place to live and rent them.”
According to the New York Post, Bower was born in Chicago and graduated from the University of Chicago.
He also has worked in the realty industry for nearly 30 years.
Earlier this month, he became the first realtor to be fired by the real-estate firm, Realtor Canada.
A spokesperson for the realteder.net told the Telegraph that Bells remains the agent of record for realtor.cn.
According the Realtor website, Boes’ real estate firm is known for offering high-end properties in New York, as well as luxury homes in the Bay Area and across the country.
