Realtors: We Overcounted Home Sales for Five Years

Article: http://www.cnbc.com/id/45659547

Being that I'm primarily handing property management, I can't help but easily ignore all this sales stuff, but as a broker/owner, I will eventually grow into handling much more sales.  Since starting my business last year, I have contemplated quitting my membership with my local MLS and, by default, NAR, since don't get too much rental/management from either.  But, I just hang in there with it, more out of duty to support my industry than anything else.  But, if our primary industry representative is going to mislead folks, no matter how minor it may be, I can't see the reason to have that support.

Someone, please help me make sense of this and tell me why I should or shouldn't continue my support.
