Earlier today, I got an email stating that my 'Premium' Realtor.com subscription was about to expire. I called to renew and much to my surprise, was told that it would cost over twice as much as last year, although I only have a few more listings this year than last. Apparently, I got pushed into a higher 'bracket'.
I'm ok with that, but does it seem unreasonable that the next bracket up should cost over 100% more? It feels a little like a bait and switch.
I decided NOT to renew. There are so many other sites where you can post for free, and my premium listings haven't brought me any buyers in the years I have been subscribing. Since the basic listing is free, I don't see the point in spending my marketing dollars this way.
I'm curious what others think of this. Is Realtor.com worth it? My personal feeling is that a site that depends on Realtors and our industry should treat us a little better....
