It’s tricky to tackle “The state of the MLS” as a topic, because it’s immense. MLSs function at the local, association, state, and national level; there are many organizations, companies, and technologies involved at those levels, and agents access MLS data in a myriad of ways.
In our cover story, we’ve narrowed it down to tell the story of what’s new with MRED, and how its services are received by agents. We cover the Broker Public Portal/Homesnap launch, examining how both developments will impact agents’ business. We also took a survey to find out how agents use the MLS in its current form and interviewed the CEO of Upstream, Alex Lange, for a in-depth Q&A. Have opinions on the MLS?
