Redfin’s announcement that they will be providing “scouting report” statistics on Real Estate agents in 14 national markets is making waves in the real estate industry. They are providing agent statistics in a convenient package on their site showing everything from currently active listings to number of dual agency transactions, all of which a pretty good kindling to ignite issues with the REALTOR community.
This new step in rating other REALTORS (including those not working for them) is sure to put more information in the hands of consumers,(which consumer and tech folks like), is pretty sure to grate on REALTORS nerves, and is equally sure to end in a lawsuit if data is found to be inaccurate.
