ListHub Surpasses 2012 Growth Rate with 36 New MLS Customers in 2013 New contracts include returning customers, bring total agreement count to 450
MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Nov. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ListHub™, the leading distributor of property listings to U.S. and international publisher websites and provider of performance metrics in real estate, operated by Move, Inc., (NASDAQ: MOVE) announced the addition of 36 new service agreements with multiple listing service organizations (MLSs) in 2013 to provide a secure and accurate platform to give brokers control over their online marketing choices. This year's agreements bring the total number of ListHub-enabled data sources to 450, and top ListHub's 2012 performance in the first 10 months of this year.
Many of the MLSs that have joined the ListHub network this year, such as the Roanoke Valley Association of REALTORS®, are introducing an MLS-connected option for listing distribution and reporting for their members for the first time.
"Our association is pleased to select ListHub as an additional benefit for our broker members," said Betty Kingery, president of the Roanoke Valley Association of REALTORS®. "We look forward to working with ListHub to provide a safe, accurate method for our brokers to market their firms' listings online."
Several MLSs had previously used alternate methods to support members' listing syndication, such as the Corpus Christi Association of REALTORS® (CCAR). After two years of managing syndication for their members independently, CCAR has returned to the ListHub network with a new agreement to provide listing syndication and metrics to their broker and agent members.
"We are extremely pleased with the continuing growth we have seen this year as a trusted provider of service to the industry," said Luke Glass, general manager of ListHub. "It is especially rewarding to have earned the return business of clients who have experienced first-hand the complexity of managing listing distribution independently and have chosen to leverage the integrated platform tools, analytics, and data protections that ListHub provides."
