REinventing MLS . . .

MRED Customers Finding Winter Vacation Homes for their Clients

Enabled by MRED’s Growing Stable of MLS Data Co-Op Partners

LISLE, ILLINOIS (November 26, 2013) – Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED), Chicagoland’s multiple listing service (MLS), announced today that it has reached agreement with twelve other MLSs around the country to jointly participate in the MLS Data Co-Op™ from CoreLogic, recognized worldwide as the premier supplier of U.S. real estate, mortgage, consumer and specialized business data,   As a result, MRED listings have gained significant national exposure, and MRED customers can easily search and view listings and public records from other MLSs around the country.

MRED currently has agreements with the following organizations:

  • Realtor® Association of Citrus County (Florida)
  • Daytona Beach Area Association of Realtors® (Florida)
  • Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors® (Nevada)
  • Greenville Pitt Association of Realtors® (North Carolina)
  • Houston Association of Realtors® (Texas)
  • My Florida Regional MLS
  • North Carolina Mountains MLS
  • New Smyrna Beach Board of Realtors (Florida)
  • Realcomp (Detroit)
  • Miami Association of Realtors® (Florida)
  • SIRMLS (Illinois)
  • Western Arizona Realtor® Data Exchange

The MLS Data Co-Op is not a public-facing website.  It is reserved for use solely by MLS participants and subscribers, providing access to more detailed listing content and far more data than available on consumer oriented websites.  MRED will continue adding reciprocal access with other MLS partners of the Data Co-Op, focusing on those areas of most interest to Chicagoans.  The MLS Data Co-Op provides MRED customers with the ability to widely market their listings; opens the doorway to expanded referral networks; and enables them to demonstrate their expertise over a larger market footprint.

The MLS Data Co-Op also provides MRED customers with a wealth of information with which to enhance their already powerful real estate database.  Via the Co-Op’s map-centric interface, users can display a myriad of information about each MLS listing on a single screen, and access underlying detailed data with the click of their mouse.  The Co-Op delivers valuable property data and reports such as RealAVM™ valuations, tax and ownership records, listing history, nearby schools, neighborhood data, community demographics, real estate trends, foreclosure information, and more.  The MLS Data Co-Op works with all popular browsers and platforms, and uses a common format for listings across MLSs without sacrificing locally unique data values.

“We are very pleased with the progress made so far in creating this true MLS Data Co-Op,” said MRED CEO Russ Bergeron.  “It is a priority for MRED to enhance our customers’ ability to have access to the best information, increase their business and establish networks with other professionals around the country.  We view the MLS Data Co-Op as one of the most effective ways we can support our brokers and their associates.”
