💥Relocated to NYC and my real estate broker has said it’s been hard to book any showings. I’ve heard in this market, having a broker can hurt you because property owners prefer to not split the brokerage fee & go straight through tenants. Is there truth to this?😫

Just speaking from an individual condo owner perspective, which may be a small slice - I use a brokerage service because I wouldn’t charge a brokerage fee otherwise so there’s nothing for me to lose. They take care of all the searching for tenants, background checks, showings of the apartment, etc. for me

Why should I invest in my 401K before a taxable brokerage account?

I know I can pull out up to 50k as a loan but that’s not enough. Hence me wanting to put the money in a taxable account and let it grow and only pay the 15% LTCG tax. Ideas are open for discussion.
