Unfortunately it is the only choice, especially if you are in an area where MLS access requires you to be a NAR member.

No.  NAR is like a cancerous trade union.  Most of the time you have no choice but to be a member.

     If members en masse would boycott NAR (don't pay the dues), that organization would crumble.  But NAR has everyone by the gonads; they control MLS in most states, and they won't grant you MLS access unless you pay their extortion dues.

Gee, I wonder if they do anything behind the scenes such as lobbying Congress to pass legislation which promotes home ownership which keeps us employed?

It is easy to complain about a fee when you don't receive an immediate tangible benefit in return.

Are not the websites all of the major franchises NATIONAL?

But, my confusion lies in understanding what 'like NAR" means.

If you refer to associations who collect money from membership and provide nothing of value to the member then the answer is a resounding, YES.
