Realtors Are Leaving in Mass And NAR is Hiding Numbers

It sounds like a broken record but NAR is back in the spotlight again. However, it is not from a headline and more as a discovery. Kala was researching NAR's membership numbers, and it seems that they wiped the board & removed every single trace of their statistics, even back in the previous century. Why is NAR doing this? And what does it spell for the outlook of realtors?




AZ Mountain Lake Realty's insight:

In July, buyers' agents may find it more challenging to present the highest offer while negotiating for the lowest seller concessions due to recent changes in real estate commission regulations. Starting in July 2024, a settlement mandates that compensation for real estate brokers cannot be listed on multiple listing services, allowing for more negotiation flexibility. This could potentially lead to lower costs for buyers and sellers alike. The standard commission structure, typically ranging from 5% to 6% split between the seller's agent and the buyer's agent, may undergo adjustments, potentially impacting the dynamics of offer presentations and concession negotiations plus different buyer broker models

The decline in FSBO (For Sale By Owner)

The decline in FSBO (For Sale By Owner) | Real Estate News and Auction | Scoop.it

The decline in FSBO (For Sale By Owner) transactions over the past 15 years can be attributed to the increasing utilization of flat-fee realtors and flat-fee listing services. These services offer homeowners the opportunity to list their properties on the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) for a flat fee, often significantly lower than traditional realtor commissions.

Flat-fee MLS sites such as https://arizonamlsflatfee.com/ by Mountain Lake Realty with over  1100 Arizona sales have become popular alternatives for sellers looking to save on real estate transaction costs. By paying a flat fee, sellers can gain access to the MLS, which exposes their property to a broader pool of potential buyers. This increased exposure can lead to quicker sales and potentially higher sale prices.

Additionally, using flat-fee listing services or flat-fee realtors can provide sellers with professional assistance in marketing and selling their homes without the hefty commission fees associated with traditional real estate agents. This cost-saving advantage has made flat-fee services an attractive option for many homeowners.

Overall, the decline in FSBO transactions can be seen as a reflection of the changing landscape of real estate sales, with homeowners increasingly opting for cost-effective alternatives like flat-fee services to sell their properties.

Real Estate Buyers Karma

Real Estate Buyers Karma | Real Estate News and Auction | Scoop.it

Loyalty and respect are crucial in any professional relationship, including between buyers and realtors. When buyers engage multiple realtors without commitment, it not only wastes the time and effort of these professionals but also undermines the trust and integrity of the real estate market.

 

Realtors invest significant time and resources in understanding their clients' needs, conducting property searches, arranging viewings, and negotiating deals. When buyers flit between multiple realtors, they dilute the efforts of each realtor involved and may exploit their services without any intention of loyalty or commitment.

 

This issue has gained attention due to recent lawsuits and settlements within the real estate industry. These legal actions reflect a growing recognition of the importance of fair compensation and professional conduct in real estate transactions. Buyers who fail to appreciate the value of a realtor's services and engage in disloyal behavior may find themselves facing  higher costs

 

Ultimately, buyers should recognize the value that realtors bring to the table and respect their time and expertise. Building trust and loyalty in the real estate relationship benefits both parties and contributes to a more ethical and efficient market.
