What is your guess on how many questions posted on Trulia are related to renting?

Asked by Lon Mapes, Redlands, CA Mon Feb 18, 2013

In my market it seems like 75% of questions posted are asking about rentals. Many of the consumers get frustrated when they don't get quick answers for the Realtor community.

Someone needs to explain that Realtors many times only get paid $200 or less for rental commissions and sometimes nothing at all. It's not that we Realtors don't want to be helpful but at the same time we need to focus on the types of business that generates legitimate revenue.

I would say it is a lot Lon! :) But remember those renters will become buyers and they will appreciate the time you spend with them and all of the help you give. Everyone knows everyone ;)

Valid point, Connie. Just frustrating as it almost seems like Trulia's a rental info site instead of a home sales site sometimes.

There are a lot of questions on Trulia, in addition to renting that are not really in our realm. When in doubt ask Realors it seems!

I completely agree with you. I see all kinds of off the wall questions asked!
