The Real Multiple Listing Service or a Violation?

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX of Valencia CA - Paris911 BRE# 01238257

Housing Radio Real Estate Show

You know Zillow and Trulia - they are not able to represent the actual MLS - at least I thought.

You know that most agents pay a website builder to build their systems - Like Boom Town, LinkuRealty and the others...

You know you are member of a Multiple Listing Service through your Board of Realtors? We pay the fee to be able to access the Real MLS - don't we?  Or is it just semantics?

That MLS supplies your "IDX" provider with access to listings so you can enable a search system on your website - that you had built for you. - you paid for it - so it's yours isn't it?

Isn't it, what you have, a more real MLS than Zillow and Trulia?  Or is it the same?

I need some guidance before I can prove I'm not better than this :)

OMT - do zillow and trulia have access to all of the real estate listings or can we, or our sellers, "restrict" them from obtaining their listings?

If you work for a website builder, like Real Geeks, should we all bow to your "greatness"?

And 200 years from now, when we are all dust, will it really matter?

I'm Ranting - as I will tomorrow on our Housing Radio Show. :)

I'm just glad that I had a chance to be a LAPD cop - "I saw things man..."

Connor - I think there are different levels of MLS because even though a lot of the data is shared, it is shared in different ways. Zillow pulls its housing data from multiple sources, as does our local MLS, and sometimes they differ.
