Real Transparency in Property Data and Transactions

A recent story in Inman News speaks to how demanding the public is for real information. The article mentions, "real transparency in property data and transactions."

I feel the public is entitled to know how long houses are actually taking to sell and to rely on REALTORS for a true telling of this info and for info on general sales trends. If our MLS doesn't rise to this higher level of service, we are betraying our values and image with the public.

I also see this as an ethical dilemma and we are an industry that is needs to be constantly vigilant on this point. What can be done to change the present situation so that DOM is a true reflection of the real time a listing has been offered for sale?
