NAR Sued for Not Allowing Contact Information in a Listing.

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) is being sued for not allowing any contact information to be put in a listing.

This has been a frustration for many of our sellers who would like to put their contact info in the MLS listing in case buyers have questions.

This would also give them an opportunity to meet a buyer directly, thereby selling with no buyer’s agent and saving the 2% to 2.5% buyer’s agent commission.

I think this is a good idea. Why not let buyers contact the agent directly or the seller if the seller desires. These are the two people who know the most about the property.

When the MLS hides information from the public, it is normally not in the public’s best interest. They hide information because they believe it helps Realtors.
