Realtor association mergers are sometimes controversial. But Inman’s latest special report found that more real estate agents and brokers think they’d be good for business than not. In a survey fielded earlier this year, Inman readers were asked if they would like their local Realtor association to merge with another local association.
- An Inman survey has found that more than 4 in 10 Realtors would like their local association to merge with a neighboring association.
- The National Association of Realtors extended grants for association mergers in May, but that funding is limited.
- Broker-owners and managing brokers tended to say "yes" when asked whether their local association should merge with another while agents tended to say "no" or "I don't know."
