Why are 'required' MLS policies not actually required?

  • IDX policies include a requirement for MLSs to allow brokers to offer sold and pending listings in IDX feeds.
  • Several MLSs have refused to comply with the policy, however.

Even though all MLSs are required to provide sold and pending listings in their IDX feeds, several MLSs have refused to comply with the policy. This inconsistency has created frustrations from brokers all over the country, especially for those operating in multiple MLS regions.
