How Often Can Agents Take a Day Off on Sundays?

Apparently MetroList expected Sunday to be a slow day in Sacramento because that seems to be the day it elected to take down its website for maintenance or whatever. Sometime in the afternoon yesterday, bam, MetroList dropped server connection. They left up the website the public gets, the website people don't pay for, and the site we do we pay for is offline.

The only thing I can think is they are changing server hosts. But couldn't they do that New Year's Eve? Or, even on Thanksgiving Day? Yeah, turkey day would have been a better day.

I wonder if they realize that listings rotating on agent's websites stop working? Do they care that property searches are screwed up? Yesterday was probably one of the busiest Sundays I've had all year, and I'm often plenty busy, but yesterday was insane, and that's the day MetroList goes down.

Oy. Luck of the draw, I guess. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: How Rare Is It for a Sacramento Realtor to Work on Sunday?
