affect our incomes >> reporter: the smiths are no alone in their concern eye are notticly investor concern is what is behind the drop in mortgage rates which are now a full percentage point lower than a year ago. that should help sellers, but apparently it is not there are far fewer bidding wars today than just a year ago >> i think people are a little more cautious to pull the trigger. in order to really sell a home quickly and for the best value you will get right now, you really need to price correctly. it is not a seller's are market right now. >> reporter: dustin collins and his wife have a new baby, but not willing to rush into a new house. >> it is more about finding the right house for us than paying a little too much for it maybe so i feel like now the houses are sitting a little longer. it gives us more of an opportunity to find the house they want. wr >> reporter: at a price that sits well within their comfort zone consumer sentiment in housing did improve in august according to a monthly survey from fannie
mae, but mainly because a lot more people think mortgage rates will keep falling. but other components were not the so he rosie. fewer people think now is a good time to buy or sell a home and more are worried about losing their job in the next year that really takes sellers out of the driver's seat. back to you. >> would you say it is a buyer's market or are we in the no man's land >> reporter: if you are in the middle to upper end, it really is a buyer's market because there is a lot of supply it is that entry level part of the market where there is very lean supply that it is probably still a seller's market. >> diana, thank you. ryan is a top selling real east state broker and star of the show million dollar listing new york and also the author of the book called sell it like serhant. ryan, thanks for being here. you were on the front lines of all of this action how would you describe the market right now >> the market is very much a buyer's market
and it has been a buyer's market for i want to say the last three years. since kind of the beginning of 2016 there is more inventory on the market now in new york city than there has been in the last couple years combined. which isn't a bad thing. people say too much inventory as if it is a bad thing, but it is not. getting buyers the opportunity to not have to jump right then, it is great if me, i'm a broker, but at the same time, it gives them more time to make the right decision and it brings equilibrium to a are marketplace where when it is sdrat up or straight down, it is never good. >> it is for a frenzied moment, but what does that mean for your job as a broker in terms of what advice you give people selling or buying? >> i mean, we use a lot of different things what is true about right now you is that people are still buying homes. is interest rates are still really low so you can't use interest rates it drive urgency anymore
i never have been able to because i got into business the day my brothers filed for bankruptcy so interest rates are low.brothr bankruptcy so interest rates are low. a slower deal that you could take today could be even worse next year. and for buyers, it is about findinging ing ing a place hope that you love and get it at a fair 3r50is. >> and let's talk about your job. you mentioned that you've had historically low mortgage rates out there. but you've also had the influx of social media and all of these things coming -- >> everything is different >> so how has that changed your job? >> when i first got into the real estate bit, my first clients were either people i met on the streets like at starbucks or people i met on craigslist. that was it. or you would have connections and from those sellers would come he other b other buyers now we make property videos and put it on youtube. my youtube channel is a huge
business for me. we just mad a girl who saw a property video we had for a house asking $15 million and she told her mother to come and take a look at it and the mother came flew and she said i was never going to come see this before, but my daughter told me to take a look and here i am and she bought it for $13 million. and that is a high price, but that happens at all different price points because that point of entry for on the product now you has totally changed. it is not the "new york times," it is not craigslist anymore now it is how are you reaching people through instagram, through facebook, through youtube. there are so many different ways that people get information and as a top real estate a little, you have to be everywhere. >> and your tips in the book, you have all kinds of great selling tip and it works for people who aren't just brokers what advice would you be giving to people who they see what you are doing and they think i can be better at what i'm doing too. >> yeah, the book came out a year ago and it has done so

shouldn't really have to incur any additional cost, no tax consequences, you shouldn't have to sell the investments. you may have to pay a small termination fee, but by and large it should be a seamless process. and make sure that you have really interviewed and reviewed the new adviser to make sure this is going to be the right fit. >> sharon, thank you be strong. >> you can do it up next "on the money" a look at the news for the week ahead. and feel like there is nothing at the movies that you want to see? how about an old favorite or even a broadway show the company bringing big events to the big screen, that is next. oral-b power brushing.

performance of the metropolitan opera? there are new and old choices on the big screen and joining us to sprain how it works is ray nutt, the ceo. ray, as part of this, is it the idea that people are more reluctant to go out to the movies to watch a regular movie, they will wait until it shows up at home with the big couches so you have to do more to draw them out? >> i think so. this business started off as a monday through thursday business and we were trying to put butts in seats during slow times and it has key evolved into pretty much a 24/7/365 business at this point. so we offer specialty content that isn't distributed like a normal disstrib buts tore and wt >> and so it feels like opening night. and how do you pick the content? >> the content is very diverse and that makes it fun.
we acquire about 150 titles every year and it ranges from like you said the metropolitan opera on the arts cite all the way to ann there. im ament e to broadway to original programming sflp is the ticket price the same or pricier? >> it is pricier and the reason it is pricier, there is always added value. when you go to a fathom event, you will see some back gound fr gound of the cast, you will get a poster, you get something special. >> who tends to go i guess it is different with every offering, but what are some of the more successful oneones staple with us is the met proceed tony romo metro follow tan offer and that audience averages 73 years old animae has content that ranges from children you all the way up to older folks as well

>> what are some of the biggest hurdles you've had to overcome >> i think brand recognition is certainly one. when you go to the movies, you will see fathom events and people are saying what is fathom, how is that different. and then they go to an event, a couple that we have coming up for example, our "friends" which i'm excited to -- >> the tv series >> the tv series we're taking three different nights, 12 different episodes. so you will see a different episode or episodes each night that you go. and that will do very well for us we went on sale for tickets on a monday and within a couple minutes we had 30,000 people who were wanting to buy tickets. >> wow is it people like me who grew up with friends oig on the air or a younger generation who is watching it on streaming services >> believe it or not, when we did the research on it, it is all the above. so that is what makes it so popular. and you know, i would analogize
it when we grew up watching "friends," we would watch it on our television at home or now on devices and that type of thing what we're trying to recreate is the studio environment so for the first time you're going to be watch beiing "frien shoulder to shoulder with your friends. >> thanks for coming in. great to see you that is the show for today i'm becky quick. thank you so much for joining us next week, buyer beware. do you know who makes the stuff that you buy on amazon you might be a little surprised. each week keep it here, we're "on the money. have a great one and we'll see you next weekend
