The Problem in Real Estate (Question: Do we have this problem in Martha’s Vineyard Real Estate?)

by Kerry on August 25, 2012

Now this is an interesting story by Lee Schmidt at the Gilroy Dispatch. We all know that the economy has been a large problem to the Real Estate industry, as has been supply and demand in various areas. His point however is completely outside of these typically known real estate issues.

“The biggest problems by far are problems created by agents,” he says in his article dated Aug. 24, 2012.

He continues, “As in most professions, the problems are caused by a handful of unprofessional agents that ruin the reputations of Realtors everywhere.”

The article goes on to describe the types of services such real estate agents offer, the type of mistakes they make and how they mislead the public.

Could this then be the reason that real estate agents are required to do courses each year to stay abreast of the latest in the industry? Could other industries benefit by continuing education? And probably the best question to ask is, how would Martha’s Vineyard Real Estate Agents hold up to an analysis by the National Association of Realtors.

There is always room for improvement.
