… consumers continue to get more places to see listings:
- Welcome, MLS PIN (Zillow gets comprehensive listings from the New England MLS)
- Connecticut statewide MLS launches a public site
The Zillow story has to be the more interesting of the two… because, unless Zillow is doing something funny on their backend, this is the first example that I’m aware of where a large MLS has agreed to commingle their MLS data with FSBO data.
In other words, if you’re a consumer searching for listings in the area covered by the New England MLS, then you’ll be able to use the single map interface (Zillow’s) to see both MLS and FSBO listings.
The only catch, at least as far as I can tell, is that the system is opt-in for the agents of MLS PIN, which means that Zillow is not likely to get true comprehensive listings as the deal currently stands.
