MRED to feed listings to CoreLogic analytics venture

MLS, largest by listings volume, continues negotiations with RPR

Real estate information and analytics provider CoreLogic has signed up Lisle, Ill.-based Midwest Real Estate Data LLC (MRED) — a sprawling regional MLS representing 13 Realtor associations and nearly 40,000 subscribers — to provide listings data to its Partner InfoNet analytics program.

Although CoreLogic is calling its agreement with MRED exclusive, the MLS is currently in negotiations with a CoreLogic rival — National Association of Realtors subsidiary Realtors Property Resource LLC (RPR).

MRED President and CEO Russ Bergeron declined to discuss some details of the MLS’s agreement with CoreLogic to supply listings to PartnerInfo Net, and the ongoing negotiations with RPR.

But, he said, "My end game is to be able to participate in both. If I’m able to pull it off, every MLS in the country is going to be calling, wanting to know how I did it."
