NAR - Our Leadership is driving us off a cliff!
Recently Inman News has been doing some good informative posts that are flying under the radar with many Realtors®. We really NEED to start paying attention to what NAR is doing and speak our piece - whichever way you feel on some of these topics. Do not let NAR drive the bus off a cliff!
There are a few topics that I am going to roll into one here - one post mentions that NAR asked membership (anyone you know of participate???) on what's the craziest idea that you think would work? The answer - take back Realtor.com! Now in itself, that would be a great idea as I feel NAR really dropped the ball on this. But now, Realtor.com is just a clamity that I don't think can be salvaged. Think of a car wreck and the car is just too old & antiquated to repair! Is is really worth the effort or has Trulia & Zillow overtaken it totally?
Can Realtor.com be a 'comeback kid'?
The disaster called the Realtors Property Resource (RPR) - this national database is not even known by most of you. You pay your dues for this and yet I would say that 99% of you do not know that NAR has created a NATIONAL MLS DATABASE. The more post comments I read in varying places makes me realize that very few have a clue that this has been up & functional for years now.
It is currently going to be 'in the hole' for the next 3 years according to recent reports. Where do you think the short fall is going to come from?
Best guess - your wallet!
Please get on some of these national forums and make your opinions & thoughts known.
