Realtor Associations on the DeclineHere's a hot item for discussion;Remember classified ads?? Craig's List basically put them out of business. Now, Zillow is becoming a serious challenge to the MLS. I've done a couple deals that never involved the MLS. Just posted the listing on Zillow and found a buyer. The buyer used a broker and we co-op'd her. I kept all my commissions, she split hers with her broker. The title company made everything right. The local Realtor association has it's undies all bunched up about these deals.So, here come the industry changes, again. I understand that those with a financial interest in the legacy (NAR) model will complain loudly - just like the newspapers.Already, Realtor.com is useless as it does NOT include ALL the available listings - but Zillow does !In Colorado - Non Realtors have full access to the MLS - because they were sued and lost. Local brokers here are advertising " DON'T use a Realtor - Keep more of your home equity "Let the screaming begin!October 22 2013 - US11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
