MLS cloud logoI was just looking at the and noticed a few very interesting things. First, the listings of over 777,000 agents are now being promoted on the site. The site now truly has a meaningful, national footprint. Way to go HAR!

I also noticed something else that I thought was a little disappointing however.  Through a terrific partnership with Terradatum’s Clarus MarketMetrics product, also provides every market that would like to participate, a FREE market snapshot, yet there are still several markets missing from this analysis. I don’t know why every MLS in the country wouldn’t take advantage of this free service.

And did I mention it’s FREE?

If you would want your market to receive this additional level of promotion, simply fill out the attached form and you’ll be in business!
