San Diego County CA— Realtors in San Diego County are now using an expanded Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to serve homebuyers and sellers with greater exposure for their listings.
Officials with the North San Diego County Association of Realtors (NSDCAR) and the Pacific Southwest Association of Realtors (PSAR) have announces a data share agreement has been signed between the San Diego regional MLS, called Sandicor, and NSDCAR, PSAR and the California Regional Multiple Listing Service (CRMLS). PSAR and NSDCAR are co-owners of Sandicor.
The agreement means local realtors will now have access to CRMLS’s database of more than 100,000 active listings of both residential properties, in addition to Sandicor’s current database of about 12,000 residential listings. As a result, homes for sale will have greater exposure to both buyers and sellers throughout the state of California, said NSDCAR 2017 president Michael Carunchio.
“This data share agreement is a great collaboration between two MSLs that will provide realtors with seamless access to each other’s listing information,” said Carunchio. “Better data available for searches and listings means better service provided to our clients. Sharing data and greater listing exposure will provide added business success for the local real estate industry.”
CRMLS is the nation’s largest MLS with more than 82,000 real estate professionals as subscribers. Sandicor has about 19,500 local subscribers. PSAR has about 2,500 members while NSDCAR has about 4,500 members.
“We are excited to embark on this new data share agreement with the Sandicor MLS, expanding listing access for real estate professionals in San Diego and across California,” said CRMLS CEO Art Carter. “Sharing data will mutually benefit both our users’ business and ultimately enhance the consumer experience. We anticipate a smooth transition for both CRMLS and Sandicor, as each will be able to access the listings newly available to them through their native MLS system.”
