I am in California,  and I want to search what is around me.  I could care less about a property in Zanzibar.  Real estate is local, each market is different.  We have 100,000 people on the coastal side of Santa Barbara.  Each neighborhood is different.  We live is a small seaside community of 14,000.  and there are different markets here...

No. Thank you.  Local matters.  I personally don't need more things to crowd my brain.  Keep things simple. And efficient.

Interesting idea but not sure I would really have time to make use of it. My focus is on local and each market is so different..its not comparing apples to apples.

I like our local MLS.... the last thing I'd want to see is a gang of listings from across the country on ActiveRain....and people would need to search to find their local area???? I'd rather they follow me and can see everything we have...

I see where you are going with this. I would like it. As a consumer who is looking into several different states and areas to move to in the future, we have resorted to using zillow because it is a one stop shop. As much as we hate it as agents, it gets some things right for consumers.

CA is big enough. With the CRMLS I am part of I can search several hundred thousand properties.

We have that already but I don't know what it's called from our MLS. Find I think. I really don't care because I never want to buy anything in a different state.

I don't believe people come to the Rain to search for homes at the end of the day. But that being said, lots of people are not searching in their town... they are movi8ng to another town. Charlotte is a huge destination city, for example.

Not really following you on this one Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573 as I thought the idea here is to blog, not create an MLS alternative.

I'm not sure how effective this would be as we really don't have that big of a market share for listings.
