MLSs play a key role in enabling technology companies and the brokerages they serve to ingest aggregated MLS information to fuel innovative ways to engage consumers in the process of buying and selling a home.
In this paper WAV Group provides an overview of the five key tools available today to enable MLSs to provide Data Distribution Services much more efficiently than older methods. Since these programs are coming on-stream very quickly and many MLSs are evaluating each of these solutions, this paper is designed to provide an overview of the key features and functionality of each of the solutions available.
Some of these solutions are available to any MLS without charge. Others represent collaborations among MLSs where the cost is shared. There is truly no reason why today’s MLSs cannot support brokerages with these world class solutions.
This is an excellent primer for boards of directors and staff of MLSs to level set on the top line overview and themes before opening up a dialog with the various groups.
If you are a technology vendor, this may help your staff understand the systems behind the data feeds.
