My prior post spoke of the fact the Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors had chosen to cut off their MLS feeds to Zillow and Listhub. This evidently caused quite the backlash from agents, teams and smaller brokerages in the Las Vegas/Henderson real estate market.
A press release(Below) from GLVAR stated after hearing concerns this month from many of its members, they have reconsidered and will now continue to share the MLS data to Zillow and Listhub as they explore other options.
Local agents and brokers communicated to the MLS that removing Zillow and Listhub from the feeds could create a hardship and would detract from the way they did business. I know all of my Las Vegas clients were really upset there was a potential that their listings would not show up on Zillow. Many of them get asked on their listing appointments if their listings would be on Zillow, Realtor and many of the home search networks out there.
No matter what side of the fence you are on about MLS data feeds and Zillow, you have to give GLVAR credit for listening to it members and having the guts to change their mind. Who knows what the future holds in this ever evolving real estate industry.
