Realtor Raps On Tight Inventory: 'All the Houses Gettin' Sold'





There are two things you can learn from the video above: housing inventory is really, really tight. ... and Realtors should never rap. Of course, that's just our opinion. And we're sure not everyone will heed our warning.

Brian Block in rap video Anyway, Realtor Brian Block of Re/Max Allegiance -- now the Lil' Wayne of home selling -- created a rap video called "Houses Gettin' Sold" about homes flying off the market in the Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., area. Housing inventory has been strikingly low across the country, frustrating many house hunters who have been finding themselves in fierce bidding wars for almost every home that is for sale. And that's particularly true for the D.C. area, where "there's just over one-month supply of homes on the market," Block said in a blog post on ActiveRain.com.

Block illustrates that point in a rhyming duet with a lovely lady in his video. The woman raps: "I'm lookin' for a house / drivin' all around / it's a very hot area / I've been told." Block pops up with a stop sign and a lyrical retort: "Stop! ... All the houses getting' sold."

Yeah. Despite its information about the local market, after watching it don't say we didn't warn you.
