The lack of professionalism in this Real Estate business just gets worse every year.
Today I'm trying to book appointments to show condos to one of my buyers. They all show available status on the MLS system. The first one is no longer for sale but the agent hasn't bothered to suspend the listing. The second one is sold but the agent hasn't reported it. The third one has specific times for showings on the MLS system but that doesn't line up with the times that his office has.
The killer here is not only a huge waste of time but it's virtually impossible to plan a route with all this inaccurate information caused by lazy agents who should be in some other business.
I could go on forever about the mess this industry is in and the shame is there are no repercussions to this to try and stem this ridiculous behavior.
Rant over! (for now)
