I think they should focus on mls feeds going to Z instead of their Realtor.com which are owned by NAR. Realtor.com is such an awful site.

Yes to your question. However, the NAR is bought and paid for. Worthless

If the article is true then I would suspect NAR and some of its leaders are probably profiting from the situation, why would they want to change it.

I thought TILA/RESPA and the 3 day cooling off period solved these?  That's what we were promised with these useless regs.

 

NAR should be lobbying to make themselves relevant to their members.

It is not just lenders ... there are more than too many untrained and unethical agents in the real estate business ... the standards across the board need much improvement.

What Kenneth J. Jones said.  By "unregulated lenders" are they referring to private funding or owner financing?  I can't imagine any unregulated lenders otherwise.

   The far leftists at New York Times want total Government control over everything.

NAR can help us all, but the NMLS under the CFPB is in control, and therre are so many regulations and controls; we are now seeing the end result with delays ion closings and ridiculous lender and underwriter demands.

I have not seen the article.

We do not need anymore government control; if they cannot do it on their own let them go out of business.

I don't get the NY times, but had to believe there are unregulated lenders - unless they are referring to independent financiers?

Why is it NAR's problem there are rogue lenders? I'm sure the CFPB was created for that.

If you wait a few months, the banks will all be deregulated again....we'll see the return of interest only programs; no doc programs and if one has a name and pulse, they'll own a home for awhile!!!
