Sunnyvale, Beverly Hills, Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) January 26, 2017
Advancing the national trend to remove barriers to real estate data, MLSListings, The MLS™ (Combined L.A./Westside MLS), and Palm Springs Regional MLS today announced they have entered into an agreement for full data sharing for their more than 32,000 combined subscribers and members. This agreement provides real-time access to property listings, market statistics, and the use of professional real estate products that benefits brokers, agents, buyers, and sellers.
“People move. And even when they don’t, our entire world is a virtual landscape. Real estate should not be technologically stuck in the past. We have worked toward full data share for more than two decades. I am pleased to move forward with our neighbors to the south,” said James Harrison, RCE, CAE, president and CEO of MLSListings.
Additionally, this agreement expands the exposure and reach of listings and property information to more than 100,000 real estate professionals and hundreds of thousands of buyers and sellers through various data sharing relationships with MLSs throughout the state.
“With this new data share program, members of The MLS™ will have more exposure than ever on their listings, plus they can tap into property information and data from up north. We are very excited to partner with MLSListings and Palm Springs Regional MLS to provide greater access to real-time data across these major areas in California," said Annie Ives, CEO of The MLS™.
The ability for brokers and agents to use service-related products allows the creation of comparative market data, neighborhood, and lifestyle information through seamless integration. Real estate remains local, but real estate data is accessible to the world. Brokers and agents have requested and deserve that same access.
“We are regularly trying to find ways to increase the sharing of listing data. Timely exposure of listings to agents throughout California, specifically through the MLS, is good for agents, brokers, buyers, and sellers. We have been partners with The MLS™ for more than six years and share our listings through C.A.R.E.T.S. This new partnership with MLSListings increases listing exposure for all involved," said Nicole Jensen, CEO of Palm Springs Regional MLS.
As the organizations combine their efforts, the full data share implementation is expected by summer of 2017.
