WOW! we just pay flat fee annual dues and quarterly service fees. I'd never allow a % and how do they get away with that? Wouldn't they need to be a licensed-entity to collect a % given RESPA & NAR rules?

That sounds crazy to be charged a percentage of each sale! Is that even legal? Do agents complain about it? We are charged $139 quarterly. I think it would be better to just pay the entire fee upfront.

All buyers/seller get them for free. Some even have access to prorietary info like codes evidently leaked from their realtor friends/relatives.

MLS is like~ $646/ year getting same info as what non-paid public. The difference is professionals can create listings....

That's the weirdest thing I've ever heard.  So what if I'm out there producing $20,000,000 a year and another agent only produces $1,000,000 a year, they have to pay the same amount based on total sales?  That makes no sense to me.

What a racket that is. Everyone is charged the same price per year & I think it's $165 or $185.

When our MLS was broker owned it was never like that either. One fee per year, per person. We had 2 MLS's at one time & they became melded together.
