Be heard! Weigh in on the discussion topics for the next MLS Technology and Emerging Issues Advisory Board meeting.

Twice a year, NAR’s MLS Technology and Emerging Issues Advisory Board gets together to consider major issues confronting MLSs.  Their next meeting, scheduled for March 8 and 9 in Chicago, will help determine whether the advisory board should recommend action to the Multiple Listing Issues and Policies Committee when it meets at the 2018 Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo in Washington D.C. this spring.    

Here’s what the advisory group will be discussing this month:

  • Data privacy and a concept known as “right to be forgotten”
  • The current and future roles of artificial intelligence and cryptocurrency in real estate
  • The upcoming July 1 deadline to implement local changes for MLS Policy Statements 7.42 and 7.43, also known as MLS of choice, which will establish a waiver for subscription fees for qualifying licensees 
  • Possible changes in MLS policy to create a waiver of commercial information exchange subscription fees, similar to MLS of choice for residential practitioners referenced above
  • A new NAR video series about SEO fundamentals featuring Rand Fishkin

We’d love to hear what you think about these technology issues and others facing MLSs.  Please leave a comment below to join the conversation, or send questions and comments about the topics to
