RISMEDIA, January 15, 2009-On Nov.18 2008, the U.S. Federal District Court Judge, Matthew F. Kennelly, gave final approval to the settlement over the display of MLS listings on virtual office websites, also referred to as VOWs. Important changes to the National Association of Realtors®’ MLS policies and rules require all MLSes to act no later than February 15, 2009.
PropertyMinder, Inc. announced that the company is ready to provide virtual office websites to RE brokers, agents and offices.
When VOW emerged in response to changing real estate business models driven by the demographic changes and industry’s embrace of the Internet as a business tool, PropertyMinder supplied thousands of real estate businesses with the AccelerAgentTM technology offering websites with much of Virtual Office functionality.
“Today, agents view a website as a supplemental branding and listing marketing tool. It is expected that after the mid-February deadline, when more than eight hundred MLSes nationwide adapt to VOW regulations, real estate websites will become essential alternatives to physical bricks-and-mortar offices. For most real estate practitioners, their Websites will become places where much of their Real Estate business is conducted,” says Aric Kazarnovsky, founder and Executive Vice President at PropertyMinder, Inc.
