Why is th ABOR so tight fisted about market data? Even local title companys that used to provide data publicly have stopped providing data. What gives?

I'm pretty unhappy about that, but am not sure how to change it. I think consumer demand has changed and the other boards are pretty open about giving the data away. If you think about it, YOU are the one buying and selling the house, so why can't you see what the numbers say?

I thought about starting a petition because I'm very jealous of the other boards. Their agents and consumers get access to tools and information that our customers can't. The old way of doing business by holding onto "proprietary" data is gone. The ABOR data belongs to you, not me and not the board.
