An online network of public-facing multiple listing Web sites, launched six months ago, now features dozens of participating associations and MLSs that together represent about 612,000 Realtors, according to an announcement Thursday, which is more than half of the U.S. Realtor population. serves as a consumer portal to its participants’ individual public-facing property-search Web sites, and features a clickable U.S. map to bring consumers to the most relevant sites.

The New Orleans Metropolitan Association of Realtors is among the latest to participate in, reported the Houston Association of Realtors, which spearheaded the effort.

The Metropolitan Regional Information Systems Inc., the largest MLS in the nation with about 50,000 participants in the Mid-Atlantic Region, is among the MLSCloud participants. The Southern California MLS, My Florida Homes MLS, and the MLS of Long Island, N.Y., are also among the roughly 80 participating groups.

In early September, MLSCloud participants represented 502,000 Realtors (see article). At the end of October, the National Association of Realtors reported a total membership of 1.13 million Realtors.
