Real estate is the most expensive profession on earth.
The median home price in the United States is $1.2 million.
But many of the top-priced homes are in places where you can’t get a quote, and many of those homes are built in countries that don’t allow you to get real estate quotes.
In fact, in some cases, you’re not even allowed to use a realtor, so you end up paying the agent directly.
That’s why some of the best deals are coming from the top 5% of agents.
In this exclusive CBS News video, CBS News National Business Reporter Tom Shales shows you how to buy a house in an area that’s not allowed to get quotes.
