Should real estate agent ratings data be released to consumers?

house.jpgThere is some discussion going on in the Real Estate industry about whether real estate agent ratings data should be released to the public. The theory is that the public would be able to use that data to make a better selection when choosing their agent.

I have not seen the exact type of data that is being discussed but I would imagine it would be things like number of listings vs. number of listings sold, number of days on the market, average sales price and sales price to list price ratio.

This information is readily available to Realtors but not to consumers just yet. I guess it’s just a matter of time before it is.

What other professionals other than sports do we have detailed stats on? Doctors, Attorneys, Accountants and what about Stock Brokers? Do we really have the same information related to their fields? I’m not saying it’s the same, but it is something to think about.
