Great new design, David…
Blog post idea: could you post something about the Realtor.ca app? I’m shocked that an app of that quality, i.e. it literally doesn’t work, still has not been improved, especially given how fast some houses sell in Toronto and how crucial that information is at your fingertips.
Let me be brutally honest here, at the risk of ruffling a few feathers…
What CREA has put together is total junk.
You would think that CREA, who oversees all of real estate in Canada, would see the value in investing whatever it takes to get a top-notch website and app up and running.
You would think…
CREA’s lack of action, and lack of foresight, have opened the door for the Zolo’s and Zoocasa’s of the world.
I pay fees every year to CREA, OREA, RECO, and TREB. And I know that they all have money – OREA in particular, who makes a ton of money off licensing all the new wanna-be Realtors! Where does all this money go?
Sure, some of the money is being used to fight the Competition Bureau. But what about putting money into better infrastructure to keep the real-estate-buying public happy?
What would it take for CREA to re-vamp www.realtor.ca, and launch a mobile app? A million bucks? That’s nothing, considering what’s at stake.
