Industry leaders are cautioning agents working Toronto’s west end, warning them about a seemingly ideal client intent on luring them to vacant properties.
Four months after having its hand slapped by TREB, this online brokerage is closing its doors.
Rock Star Realty says it all ! Maybe you should go back to making noise on stage not in the Real Estate community.
The entire article was completely insulting and not even accurate about commission structures. I am tired of the Toronto STAR trashing agents in the numerous articles they have published. In fact I called their office and said it is about time they stop this practice considering the thousands of dollars REALTORS spend in advertising in their paper. I also checked out Fee Duck. Agents are bidding down to 2%. This does not pay the buyer agent and also does not even cover their expenses. What is the point of even taking the listing?
I wonder if any of these discounters have ever executed a professional listing including simple things like a full CMA package, newspaper/magazine advertising, "Just Listed"/"Just Sold" flyers, professional photographer, staging, would they spend the best part of a weekend (mid day Saturday and Sunday) at an open house, not to mention eliminating the possibility of doing anything else those days? Closing gifts? I think the answer to most of these items is no as 1% (less their broker split) probably would just cover the total cost of these fees! Q: What kind of business model generates zero income? A: A bad one. 1%ers fall into this category.I guess part timer 1%ers aren't trying to feed their family, pay their mortgages from their Real Estate revenue, they have full time jobs to do that, Real Estate is just for fun and it doesn't really matter to them! Why do they think they can screw with peoples greatest investment of their lives "just for fun"??? Why do they screw with the incomes of full time, professional agents. Part timers should be eliminated. Discounters should be eliminated. Bad Agents should be eliminated. The process to get a Real Estate license needs to become more difficult and if you fail, you're done. Try another career!This is a difficult business and these Discounting Clowns are making a mockery of it. Something needs to happen to shake the trees to get the rotten fruit out.Discounters, get a life outside of Real Estate! Work in the Gas industry. Introduce the competition bureau to Petro Canada!!
