Because more people know and, sadly, trust zillow/trulia than NAR.  Like Fred Griffin said, NAR's days are numbered.

What does WSJ licensed by NAR to operate Realtor.com mean, Bill? Realtor.com was purchased some years back by Rupert Murdoch, who also owns The WSJ. I don't know where NAR comes in. As Rupert owns both Realtor.com and WSJ, I'd expect more quotes from the economist at Realtor.com.

WSJ understands if you control the information, (narrative) you control the market.

The Evil empire has displaced all other voices on consumer real estate by owning the dominate voices. The one exception is RealyTrac.

And real estate agents continue to support the Evil Empire in collusion with their associations and franchises and will find themselves hapless when the Empire of Evil Intent brings into reality the goal they have supported for over a decade. 

Only one road block exists. That is a block chain solution that leaves NAR and its members pounding sand.
