The National Association of Realtors' board of directors has postponed until at least this fall a decision on whether brokers who participate in data-sharing agreements are violating NAR policy if they allow search engines to index other brokers' for-sale listings.

Convening at NAR's midyear convention in Washington, D.C., the Realtor association's Multiple Listing Issues and Policies Committee last week recommended that a 2005 policy be amended to clarify that brokers may allow search engines to index listings shared through Internet Data Exchange (IDX) reciprocity agreements (see story).
