BERKELEY, Calif., May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Three San Francisco Bay Area MLSs announce that they have agreed to a reciprocal content-sharing agreement in which they will share all real estate listing data with one another's MLS participants and subscribers.
The agreement was entered into on April 17, 2017 by San Francisco Association of REALTORS® (SFAR), Bay Area Real Estate Information Services, Inc. (BAREIS), and bridgeMLS.
"This agreement provides real estate professionals with the ability to use mobile apps to access MLS listings from the San Francisco Bay Area's East Bay, North Bay, and the City of San Francisco," says DaVina Lara, CEO of bridgeMLS. "The number of listings now available to participants and subscribers from all participating MLSs has increased by the thousands."
The apps that will handle the MLS data from the three organizations are: mytheo.com, mypropertyoffice.com, RealScout, Cloud CMA, Cloud Streams, Cloud MLX, and a new public portal, reBayArea.com.
"With this enhancement of the existing data share agreements, members will have the same ease of access to neighboring market listing data through their preferred business tools, as they have enjoyed for the last 10 years through their MLS systems," says K.B. (Karen) Walter, president and CEO of BAREIS MLS. "We look forward to expanding this benefit to additional products as the program develops."
"The markets of BAREIS, bridgeMLS, and SFAR MLS are deeply intertwined. Our members deserve access to all of the data they need, in all of the apps they use," says Walt Baczkowski, CEO of San Francisco Association of REALTORS®.
