I have seen several comments about PAC money and how NAR does not care about the appraisers? How many of us are forced to be a member of NAR to have MLS access? I work in the Peoria, Tazewell, & Woodford County area in Central Illinois. The area is largely covered by one MLS, but to belong to the MLS and have the data I need to perform an appraisal assignment, I MUST be a member of both the IAR (Illinois Association of Realtors) and the NAR. There are 79 appraisers in the Peoria area MLS who are forced to be NAR members. This does not account for the handful who are also Realtors. Is this typical in most areas of the country? Are there collectively enough of us out here in the same position that we might get NAR to hear our cries? Post up the data in your local market. I'm curious to know how many members it takes to get NAR to act on our account. Do we need 10,000 / 50,000 / or more ??? Will NAR be willing to help us if we all walk out and they can't close a sale? Desperate times call for desperate measures!!!
