    Its about time the entire state is covered by one service. I can think of no reason why it shouldnt be, and many as to why it should.

      We have several…called Zillow, Trulia, Realtor.com…

        Arent those a blessing for us?! Zillow with its insane estimates, Trulia, which at least had some interesting blog features but has just been purchased by Zillow, and Realtor .com which I will never understand anyway. Its mainly an advertising spider web for revenue. With the MLS systems being our main trump card to listings, why do we allow these places to take feeds from the main MLS and then post butchered material out just to make real estate agents pay for leads? If we kept our own access, the leads would come straight to us with no fees, or at least nominal fees added to our membership fee.

          The Zillows & Trulias are bottom feeders.

        Great to have another service area. None of the internet companies mentioned have all listing inventory. Realtor.com comes closest as it is the only one that receives all of the RMLS data.

          Still—how does realtor.com benefit us? Its another loss of control. Its a revenue trap. We own the MLS and its information. Why should we allow anyone to pull from it except our own websites?

            The reason we can’t have it “all to ourselves” is that 1) we used to, and 2) we were about to face a lawsuit for being a monopoly. To take the rationale out of that potential suit, we began to share. We don’t like monopolies in other industries (Comcast, anyone?) so why should we be one?

      I agree completely, for the benefit of those we serve. Certainly, licensees should have the choice, but if they can look at the benefits with an open mind, how can one not support one fabulous, all-inclusive, state-wide MLS.

        Well, we are all dues paying members—lets make it happen!
