2 part question: 1. Is Zillow or Trulia directly regulated at all by legislation and/or NAR? 2. If tomorrow, every agent decides to ditch their MLS and list directly on Zillow or Trulia; how would the answer to question number 1 change?
Just a little background too.....I was the guy who originally ranted and raved when Zillow would call be to "sell me access" to my own listing. I then realized the battle was with my mls. I banged my head on the wall for a long time and even joined the technology advisory board to try to make a change. My boss told be to be careful about where I "waste" my energy because MLS boards dont really change. I realized the MLS were corporations that didnt really care about progressing with technology. I had a decision to make....either waste energy on something I couldnt change OR examine the directions CONSUMERS want to go in and what online sites were going to meet their needs. I needed to spend time selling houses and not trying to force an outdated MLS to get with it. So thats how I ended up today at Zillow Conference....its clear to me where the industry is heading.
