NAR policy allows MLSs to write their own social media listing display rules

But trade group says MLSs can't require members to share

ORLANDO, Fla. — The National Association of Realtors has approved a policy that allows individual multiple listing services to choose whether to allow member brokers and agents to display for-sale listings represented by other, consenting members on social media sites.

NAR’s Multiple Listing Issues and Policies Committee approved and recommended the policy on Saturday; NAR’s board of directors approved the policy without discussion via a voice vote on Monday at NAR’s annual Conference and Expo.
