MEMBER ADVISORY: Zillow and Third Party Vendor Feeds

Colorado Springs, CO (June 22, 2017) - On June 20th many of our participants and subscribers received an email from Zillow Group announcing the company would no longer accept third-party vendor feeds from Real Estate Digital, ListingsMagic.com, RealBird and AgentMarketing.com. RSC wanted to provide some clarification on the impact of this change as it appears that it was sent to all premier agents, regardless of how REALTORS® choose to syndicate to Zillow.

The named vendors are used by some of you to provide your listings to Zillow. Zillow decided to no longer accept feeds from these companies, with the exception of ListingsMagic.com which had already decided to terminate its agreement with Zillow prior to this announcement. Hopefully, any of you using LIstingsMagic.com had already been informed by ListingsMagic.com of its decision to terminate its relationship with Zillow. Only those of you using the previously mentioned services as an IDX provider should be effected by Zillow’s decision. You should not be impacted by this decision if your listings are sent via your franchise, you use a different IDX vendor, or do not currently syndicate to Zillow.

RSC is pleased to announce that we are working on a solution for use by our participants and subscribers who use an IDX (third-party feed) or don’t have an IDX vendor to send listing information to Zillow. RSC believes this solution will meet the needs of our REALTOR® members wanting to syndicate with Zillow. RSC also believes it should be the choice of our brokers and agents on where to syndicate their listings and is committed to providing workable solutions to that end. With Zillow’s cooperation, RSC hopes to announce the solution in the very near future.

Update on MLS Discussions in Front Range

On May 8th Pikes Peak REALTOR® Service corporation shared a statement with Members and Participants regarding the organization’s desire to be formally included in discussions with REColorado and IRES for providing the best possible solutions for real estate professionals. The statement was directed at the other two MLS organizations to publicly announce and make known the willingness of RSC & PPAR to be part of finding solutions for REALTORS®. In an effort to keep our Members and Participants informed, we wanted to update you on the status of our request to be a part of productive conversations among all the stakeholders.

Several weeks after the May 8th announcement, RSC received a Letter of Intent (LOI) for the three MLSs to enter into formal merger discussions. The LOI was created during facilitated conversations between REColorado and IRES with no input from RSC or PPAR. RSC could not sign the LOI as it was written as it was not in the best interest of RSC, PPAR, members or participants and limited future discussions. RSC responded by asking for a meeting between the three MLSs prior to committing to next steps. RSC believes that all parties should have equal input in the process and remains committed to working together to develop the best possible solutions.

RSC and PPAR leadership will continue to keep you informed on this very important issue.
