How does the U.S. model compare to broker marketplaces in other countries? 

As NAR maintains, “U.S. local broker marketplaces have long been - and are still - viewed as the best option for consumers around the world. By consolidating fees and the overall process, our nation’s model increases efficiency, simplifies the experience, provides greater certainty of success to both buyers and sellers, and provides guidelines that ensure the accuracy of housing inventory made available to real estate professionals and consumers, all at comparable or lower total costs than those in other countries.”
