In a report that is indicative of the what happens when barriers to entry are low –
A 46.1 percent increase in the number of Realtors in Massachusetts since 2001 means there is now one Realtor for every 1.6 houses sold in the state so far this year. That number is on track to fall far short of the 2.9 houses sold for every one Realtor four years ago.
This sort of number hurts everybody – including me and my business! Now I just need to find the numbers for the Virginia Association of Realtors.
