The Broker Public Portal — a project to build the nation’s first national public-facing MLS website — has just gotten its biggest boost to date. Black Knight Financial Services, provider of the Paragon MLS system, has signed a deal with Homesnap, BPP’s intended provider. The deal will give free use of agent-only, MLS-powered app Homesnap Pro to Black Knight’s more than 200 MLS customers representing more than 250,000 agents and brokers.
- Black Knight and Homesnap have made a deal to offer Homesnap Pro for free to all Paragon MLS customers and their agent and broker subscribers.
- Because Homesnap and the Broker Public Portal will soon sign a definitive agreement, any MLS users of Homesnap Pro will be able to easily sign up for the BPP.
- The deal provides agents and brokers with an MLS system that is integrated with Homesnap's mobile app. Through BPP, agents could also advertise their listings for free on a nationwide MLS-powered website controlled by brokers and MLSs.
