Your MLS Search is About to Improve Drastically

Big Changes Coming October 28


The MLS rarely does updates, in fact,  it’s kind of behind but with great sites like Trulia and Zillow that have pushed the envelope as far as what consumers want and demand, they are making progress.  Accurate information is key and using technology is mandatory.  Here are 3 great things for you to look forward to:

  • For example, by the end of this month 25 photos will be allowed to be entered for each listing on NTREIS, North Texas Real Estate Information System).
  • All Open House Dates and Times will be on all full customer reports and all IDX feeds (Internet Data Feeds) those are the listings that come directly from the MLS, like on this site.
  • And Clarus Market Metrics, California MLS’s have been using this for awhile, you can run reports on the median home prices and many other report options pulled directly from local MLS data, results can then be sorted and distributed to clients and/or posted online.  Any agent will be able to target a specific zip code for their report and in some cases a map code or even a school district.  Can’t wait!

Being the data geek I am you will find reports posted online here.  Anything to make the home buying and selling process easier. And using actual MLS data is far more accurate than public data assembled by algorithms   That’s the one thing about all the information online, it’s great –  but can you trust it?
