Things are getting interesting on the RESO front. There was lots of chatter from the RESO community at the CMLS conference earlier this month. Most of it centered around the COVE group and their frustration with any real progress since it announced it’s list of standardized MLS data fields.
Now it appears that members of the COVE group are running for seats on the RESO board effectively implementing a “COVE d’état”.
Or maybe not. Word is the NAR would like nothing more than more involvement, especially from the MLS provider community which represents over 40% of the listings nationwide, to help them in their efforts. So I predict a smooth transition as these new COVE board appointments are elected.
I just hope that these COVE participants understand it’s never been about data standards, its about implementation.
