Money comes into play; however keep in mind that you could work with an agent of your own who can provide listings based on your criteria and the information is free.

I wish Agents would stop thinking they need to "capture" clients. BE A GOOD AGENT! That's ALL it takes to succeed! Getting AS MANY people to find YOUR listing, as easily as possible is The Key. Period. If I had a brick to whack every Agent who posts piss-poor descriptions, pictures (IF ANY)... A GOOD Agent is worth their weight in gold. But MOST Agents aren't. This "just help an Agent make a living, will ya?!" attitude is ridiculous. I DON'T WANT AN AGENT TO FILTER, AND *I* AM RATHER PARTICULAR. *A* Agent will HAVE to be employed by me as nearly exclusively Listing Contracts REQUIRE (AND some States BY LAW require this) both a Seller and Buyer Agent. Puh-leez! Anyway. Your non-answer is NOT a help. I wish you, and EVERY Agent could actually understand this and get over themselves.

Because people pay to place listings in prime search locations so more people see them. .I would love for them as well to have a better search but paid placement of homes and agents spoils that.
