NAR likely to cede social media listings policy to MLSs

Display of shared listings would take place outside of IDX rules

ORLANDO, Fla. — The National Association of Realtors is one step closer to adopting a policy that would leave it up to individual multiple listing services whether or not to allow member brokers and agents to display for-sale listings represented by other consenting members on social media sites.

An MLS policy statement approved Saturday by NAR’s Multiple Listing Issues and Policies Committee would, for the most part, let MLSs that choose to allow the display of shared listings on social media sites write their own rules.
