Greater Scranton Board of REALTORS® partners with MLS Grid to manage real estate data feeds
SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 05, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Greater Scranton Board of REALTORS® announces that the organization’s Multiple Listing Services (MLS) has begun using MLS Grid to deliver and standardize data transfers for its members.
The move makes the Greater Scranton Board of REALTORS® the second association in Pennsylvania to move to MLS Grid in recent months. This continues the goal of MLS Grid to create marketplace efficiency by streamlining data transfers across real estate markets nationwide and providing standardized vendor licenses.
With more than 500 MLSs operating nationwide, it’s often a challenge for brokerages to combine data from multiple markets to serve websites, marketing systems, market analytics, showing services, lockbox services and brokerage management systems. The Real Estate Standards Organization’s (RESO) Web API powers MLS Grid. MLS Grid’s platform is built on trusted, open technology standards which help organizations efficiently deliver or receive data.
“Our team is always seeking ways we can best serve our members” said Greater Scranton Board of REALTORS® Association Executive Brittany Kinsman. “With the help of MLS Grid, we’ll be able to provide a faster process for data licensing, billing, distribution, and online compliance.”
MLS Grid is run by MLS executives and developers with more than 60 years of combined MLS experience. This team understands the industry and the challenges brokers and associations face in a fast-evolving market.
“All MLSs face similar pain points with managing data feeds and licensing. Our simplified process saves MLS staff significant time and resources,” said MLS Grid CEO Joseph Szurgyi. “We help MLSs, brokers, and tech companies work together efficiently to achieve a common goal as well as implement the increasingly important RESO data standards.”
