The "Information Crisis" is sweeping the nation. MLS systems are reporting information taken from the local assessor's offices, which are notoriously inaccurate. This inaccurate info is causing low appraisals, inaccurate CMA's, and hurting an already fragile real estate market. The MLS is "the most trusted SOURCE of real estate information in the world." However, they are quickly becoming an advertising outlet and not the SOURCE of real property data at all. When that happens, what's to stop the Google's and Yahoo's from taking over the real estate information network? If they all have access to the same information, the MLS looses a huge advantage over the competition. It's time for the MLS to get back on tract. If you are a real estate professional, you should know the power of the MLS and the secrets of our public records system. This class will not disappoint!
