“This may be a surprise to some in the real estate industry, but there is no current nationwide policy that gives brokers the right to get back the listing data they put into a multiple listing service.
That may be about to change. On Monday morning, at the National Association of Realtors’ online midyear conference, the trade group’s Multiple Listing Issues and Policies Committee approved a policy that gives MLS participants (defined as brokerage principals) the right to receive a data feed of their own listing information without restrictions on what they can do with that data.”
Tip of the hat to Sir Mix-A-Lot, for the title reference.
Nice work CMLS! I realize that it’s a tough balancing act to drive policy but it seems that CMLS handled this perfectly. The fact that the work done by CMLS was for the benefit to the broker community is like adding a cherry to the top of an ice cream sundae. So cheers to Denee Evans, the board of directors, and the entire staff of CMLS for making this happen.
One last thing, it sounds like we are looking for is a name for this policy? I have a suggestion.
Not IDX, but MYDX, as in MY DEE EX
