It’s the day after a groundbreaking BAM debate on agents vs. appraisers, so you know it’s on the agenda for today’s episode of The Walk Thru.

But first up, Victoria Velazquez, this week’s guest on the Over Ask Podcast, and Dustin Brohm aka the Massive Agent, join Byron Lazine and The Broke Agent to talk about which grocery store chain has the biggest and most positive impact on home values. 

Next, they discussed a BAM article on FHFA’s new conforming loan limit (CLL) values, followed by each moderator’s take on the BAM debate, with props for Mark “Skap” Skapinetz and hopes that this is the beginning of a collaboration that will benefit both sides, as well as buyers and sellers.

The four wrapped up with December marketing ideas for agents, whether you’re new to the industry or just stumped about what to do this year.
