Do agent websites need listing search? [VIDEO]

Two agents and a consultant debate the pros and cons

Some agents are beginning to question the value of offering consumers the ability to search listings on agent websites. But is foregoing listing search a smart strategy?

As a follow-up to one of Inman News’ most popular articles last week, we invited two agents who aren’t offering listing search on their websites — Greg Fischer, broker-owner of Fort Worth, Texas-based Fischer Real Estate Services, and Alyssa Hellman, an agent with Long & Foster Real Estate Inc. in the Washington, D.C. area — to discuss the topic with residential real estate consultant Victor Lund, founding partner of Southern California-based WAV Group.
