Rob Hahn, in a post titled, "To Hunt Elephants, You Need an Elephant Gun," discusses one of the hottest topics in real estate: the multiple listing service of the future. There has been much discussion already about the MLS and what it might look like in a few years.
Hahn tackles the elephant in the room: money, and he suggests that major MLS innovations can be too costly for small-market MLSs but are achievable when the MLSs serve a larger base. He suggests that the MLS of the future "will not be a membership organization like (the National Association of Realtors) or a local Realtor association" and will be operated more like a typical company.
