Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Don’t believe the hype, RPR is a hit!

Word on the street is that despite some early misteps, one of the larger MLS providers saying “thanks, but no thanks”, and being declared “dead” by industry bloggers MLS providers are signing up in droves for NAR’s RPR.

The RPR folks have been pretty quiet for several weeks, but it’s pretty clear they are have been busy!    I expect some big numbers from RPR to be released before and after next week’s NAR Midyear meetings. This will be great news for Dale Ross, Marty Frame and team.

What that means for other vendors in the MLS industry is not clear.  But it looks like one, First American Core logic, might be feeling the heat.  Recently it was reported  they were suing “rivals” including Zillow and the data vendor for NAR’s RPR program LPS Real Estate Group, to “compensate CoreLogic for its profits lost.” Seems pretty desperate to me.

  1. I think that the best is yet to be seen – for RPR, CoreLogic, Move and iMapp. We saw over 10,000 downloads of the CMLS white paper on our blog since the release last week – and the primary download location was at the CMLS website.

    This indicates to me that there are many corners of the MLS and Association industry that are still in the decision phase – so all of the companies making offers in exchange for deeper and more flexible data use permissions are likely to have a rather busy year ahead.

    Here is the link to download the paper that compares the offerings.
