The real estate market is vibrant, healthy, and vigorously competitive. Technology innovation in the real estate industry is robust, and the notion that real estate isn’t highly competitive and listing data not readily available is unsubstantiated. To the contrary, a wealth of listing data is available to consumers and technology companies from a multitude of sources, and REALTORS® provide their clients and consumers with more real estate information today than has ever been available.
The Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice jointly hosted a June 5, 2018 workshop, "What’s New in Residential Real Estate Brokerage Competition," in which NAR general council Katie Johnson was among a distinguished group of panelists. NAR asserts that innovation, competitive forces, and consumer choice have never been stronger.
