Direct tentacles to your MLS. That's great - you've signed over the farm!

They are also looking for credability that only R.c has at the moment. They are trying to get over the errors that we keep hitting them over the head with.

Apparently Z got around the Warren Buffet's effort to block syndication through Listhub.   Z gets a rets service and get its Premiere agent to show unless you are with Coldwell Banker.  Z's cost is like $2.5K a month per mls site. 

The NAR owns all mls sites and realtor.com is the default source. So NAR can not block it?

We have the option in our MLS on whether to syndicate to websites. We opt to not do so. Why feed the beast?

Don't know... our MLS has had no contract with Zillow for two years. We don't syndicate to them. RE/MAX does and it's been a mess, especially vis-a-vis Trulia. I've shut off that feed from RE/MAX, as well.

Fred Griffin - I believe Zillow is moving towards more accurate data - for consumers at least, it's a good thing.

I'm not sure. I'll have to see how our MLS does it, but we no longer use listhub for syndication. Our MLS CEO reached an agreement with zillow about the use of our data, and now we have more control over it. So we probably have a live feed. I guess it would be better for everyone.
