I contacted realtor.com
for "leads", which is what they really sell. If you're ever stupid enough to post your real information on that website, you will receive TONS of calls from realtors, because they sell your info. Actually, the higher the price range you're looking at, the more expensive you are, as a lead. I signed up to receive "leads" in a certain zip code, where homes start at $800,000 to millions and condos start in the $400,000's, with only ONE exception: a freakin' time share at $50,000. Over a period of 6 weeks I received 24 leads, 22 of them inquiring about the time share! I asked them how these things are distributed and they said "by algorithm", computer does it. Total BS, there's no way I've been selected 22 times in a row by this thing for the $50,000 inquiries, where hundreds of other listings are much higher priced! Bottom line, they also lied about my having a "contract for 6 months" with them, where I've never signed ANYTHING with them. They kept charging my credit card, even after I told them to STOP. Here's the kicker: I called Bank of America to "cease and desist" this activity, it turns out they CAN'T. Because they don't have any knowledge of your conversations with the sales rep at REALTOR.COM
. So in their opinion, you paid $24 per lead, they gave you leads. There's no documentation that you signed up for high end leads over $800,000 and you got 22 of them for $50,000. You paid for leads, you got leads! Over all, realtor.com
is the biggest piece of shit in this business and people need to know this. Go ahead and sign up with a local RE company website and you'll deal with a real person, not a scam making machine!
