  • Published: 19 June 2019

We challenged three people - an apartment renter, an apartment owner and a real estate expert - to try to guess how much the apartment sold for. Leonard reveals more and more details to them as they refine their guesses.

              The young woman seems clueless and just seems to be blabbering on and laughing to hide insecurity. The young guy tries his best but doesn't seem confident. The older person speaks with confidence and knowledge. Edit: Btw, I wrote this comment before their price estimates.

                His glasses being crooked was really distracting.

                          "The apartment has a view of Hudson and New Jersey."
                          "Is that a good view?"

                                  Not that it justifies her crazy price estimates, but as far as I can tell Chinwe (everyone's calling her the Pink Haired Girl, but let's call her by her name for a change) isn't "in" real estate as people keep saying. She's just a renter, plain & simple.

                                    That car elevator is a big deal because it automatically means the person who is expected to live in the apartment has a car that is too valuable to leave in “common” areas. And when you have a car like that, you probably can get an assistant to bring you your groceries. Proximity to shopping or whatever is moot.
                                    Also, The guy kept saying “privacy”. So basically this is a place where rich hedgies or public figures keep their side piece so they’re not seen/caught visiting them.
                                    All in all, this is not for regular folks. I bet 2 mill and adjusted to 9.9 mill.

                                      They could have gotten a renter with some idea about...anything... she comes across as really dumb and I just feel embarrassed for her. You don't have to be a real estate expert to make a proper guesstimate.

                                          For a dude who has lived in a generic mid sized midwestern city his whole life, I’m shocked I’m so good at these. I’d like to thank AD for helping me discover this talent for which I have no use...

                                              They are....a lot; on the other videos also. It's really not severe: I think it's because we focus on others' eyes when someone is speaking, and it's unexpected; but I find people with one eye looking in a different direction way more offputting.

                                            Only 9.5 million ? I was guessing over 25 million. Thats why I'm poor

                                                                The renter is hilarious, she doesn't have the slightest idea about the market. Looks at some pretty staging pictures and empties the bank. The perfect buyer you will never sell a home to :D
