San Francisco Bay Area MLSs to share 'coming soon' and pocket listings

RESAAS plans 'agent-only, nationwide pre-market listing service'
  • Two Bay Area MLSs have signed a deal to share "pre-market" listings with each other's members through a private social network from RESAAS.
  • This is an area where agents expect access to data without artificial barriers, according to one MLS CEO.
  • The deal provides "the foundation for an agent-only, nationwide pre-market listing service," according to RESAAS's president.
  • He expects more MLSs will choose to share pre-market content.

When “coming soon” listings blazed into the spotlight nearly three years ago, MLSss had a choice: support what agents and brokers were already doing among themselves or try to quash it.
