Roost’s conclusion? That using these sites “homebuyers waste tons of time searching through homes that aren’t actually for sale.”

The company, which previously released a commission report claiming its search superiority (see Quantity, quality vary at real estate search sites), seems to be hammering relentlessly on this point. It remains to be seen whether it’s a message that resonates with consumers however.
