The Competition Bureau feels that the MLS system we have is unfair, holds the public hostage to our income structure (commissions) and is unfair to the public because you must use the services of a REALTOR® to have your property listed on MLS.
Being partial and having a personal interest in this confrontation(my income derives from real estate) I wonder if we can make the playing field level with the following suggestions.
Let the public advertise their used car on the Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota, BMW web site. How unfair to let these big guys discriminate against the small guy.
Let the public have free access to all county, city, state and provincial property records for assessments, titles and liens. How unfair that the public does not have free access to all of these confidential documents.
Let the public have free access to every-ones medical records. How unfair that you have to pay to see someones medical record!
Am I LOL? I can poke fun and try to find an analogy to explain the protective and blind thought process of bureaucrats but is this not been going on far to long?
