Youtube Sensation XtraNormal Takes on Housing Crisis (NSFW)


xtranormal real estateThe do-it-yourself video phenomenon that swept the Internet with its hilarious, obscenity- laden iPhone parody is at it again. But this time, those curmudgeonly puppies are taking aim at the real estate market.

Xtranormal, a popular online video-making platform that turns user-generated text into animated films, has been used to create literally millions (11.2 million, by Xtranormal's count) of f-bomb-laced videos on everything from office scuttlebutt to surprisingly detailed diatribes on Quantitative Easing. Naive homeowners and aggressive realtors are favorite targets.

Below is a sampling of some of the most memorable real estate-related entries. Be warned, though: Those puppies can curse a blue streak. Sensitive viewers may want to move on to our next post.





Why short sales may not be the best option for first-timers. We can only imagine how many of these conversations this frustrated realtor had to suffer.





Something to keep in mind before visiting your seller's agent: Know what other houses in your neighborhood are selling for before asking for the stars and moon. Failure to do so may result in your agent committing a class-1 felony on your naïve behind.




It's not just Realtors getting in on the fun. As you can probably tell from the title of the video ("Blood-sucking Vampire Realtor"), homeowners have plenty to get off their chests as well. This video lets everyone have it, from imprudent homebuyers who bought above their means, to unscrupulous agents who pushed said owners in the wrong direction.

Avoid becoming fodder for the next disgruntled Xtranormal creator. Check out our home buying and selling guides for a better understanding of today's market.
