It has occurred to me recently that a vast number of Realtors® love to post their listings here on ActiveRain. This is clearly evident when looking at the ActiveRain Blog Dashboard. Sometimes listings will fill the entire time line.
What is even more disturbing is the fact that I have see many agents mark their blog posts as Members Only.
This begs me to ask the question to all those Realtors® that only post their new listings as to WHY? Please don't get offended, but could you create a blog that is more than just a republication of your new listing.
I have read and commented on over 600 blog posts. I know that is not much and that it is just a tiny number compared to the Ambassadors and power users, but my gut dictates that sometimes the agents just do it for the points.
I personally enjoy learning more about you as an individual and the listings just DON'T do it for me. Furthermore, based on my limited experience on ActiveRain much of the interaction here is peer-to-peer and not business-to-consumer.
So here is my holiday request. Realtors® Please Stop with the New Listings!
