Last week the Canadian Real Estate Association and the Competition Bureau reached a settlement to open up CREA's Multiple Listing Service to For Sale By Owner listings. Sellers can now pay a real estate brokerage a flat fee to merely post a property to the MLS without providing any other services to the seller.
Tonight's episode will also include a debate on the case against home ownership with a great panel (accurate at time of writing) including:
Jane Saber, Assistant Professor at Ted Rogers School of Management, Ryerson University
Phil Soper, President and CEO of Royal Lepage
For more on the recent settlement between CREA and the Competition Bureau, read John's recent blog post, Making Sense of Canada’s New MLS Rules.
