No doubt you will get a response from some licenced folks in FL, but we have determined NOT to go that route for the reason you mentioned and others. We would rather work with a couple of good brokers.
What would be the up sides? The commission, or rather the commission split? Frankly, except of commercial properties, a 25% spit of 6% on a 20-70k purchase isn’t worth the hassle.
The info on “hot” properties? Maybe, but I find that even from one office to the next there is a lack of cooperation amongst brokers, so I likely would not see them anyway.
We have access to MLS thru a broker, and that is the only reason I can see for getting a licence.
