Comment of the Week

"After 15 years in the business, i haven’t met a single agent who purchased a Realtor Membership for any reason other than being forced to in order to also purchase the desired MLS Membership (somehow miraculously escaping anti-trust law prohibiting tie-in arrangements).

If Realtor Membership was voluntary (as it is with a few rare MLS’s), the NAR would be forced produce a tangible benefits. Imagine going to your local hamburger joint and being forced to buy a gallon of soda in order to get the burger. The gallon of soda is the same thing as the mandatory Realtor Membership; a large, bloated, expensive, calorie-rich, nutrient-void, bucket of fizz."
