The MLS Grid was created by a network of MLSs and is designed to help brokers, MLSs and product vendors work efficiently together to affect cost savings by implementing RESO standards! Its purpose is not to disrupt, but rather to enable MLSs to work together towards the common goal of improving MLS services through collaboration!
The MLS Grid’s focus is on technology, not politics. We deliberately started with a small group of like-minded MLSs in order to move quickly to create a working product without the distraction of marketing and product launch to a broader audience. One factor inhibiting consolidation in the industry has been the fear of losing local identity and preferences that are ultimately reflected in data. The MLS Grid creates an environment that preserves the best of “localization” while increasing the opportunities for broader cooperation among MLSs.
