Competition in the Real Estate Brokerage Industry

By
Real Estate Agent with My Florida Homes For Sale

The Federal Trade Commission and the US Justice Department continue the attack on the real estate industry, our MLS systems, and real estate agents practice of discouraging completion from a variety of sorts including; virtual offices, commission rebates to buyers and sellers and flat fee or "limited service companies." The report is from the federal level and details how state governments have been influenced by various Realtor organizations to “legislate” this competition out of business.
