To quote from the September 21, 2010 RPR Blog ™, “As we complete the MLS data integration into RPR, we launch the RPR to REALTOR® members of that MLS. A NRDS ID and MLS ID from an MLS active in RPR are required to log into RPR.” So all you need to get a NRDS ID? Look at the cover of any Realtor magazine. The MLS ID? Everybody has your MLS ID. 1. What kind of security is that against banks and the general public gaining access to our “Realtors only” RPR website? 2. If accurate sold data is available to lending institutions through Realtors or by hacking, how can NAR hope to sell this data? 3. How can any website with over a million user names and passwords NOT become available to everyone who wants to get in? It will happen within a matter of days or weeks? Banks are taking it in the shorts these days, and they would love to save Realtor and appraiser fees. Remember when they needed us to establish a market value and sell the REO property? Once they have our “off market” data (sold prices, days on market and agents involved) they will further marginalize us Realtors and appraisers. If we think we stopped the banks last time, just wait until RPR goes live with data from YOUR area. If NAR thinks they can sell data that people can get for free, they’ve got another think coming.
