RISMEDIA, November 17, 2009—Six months after its launch, MLSCloud now puts more than 600,000 REALTORS® just a mouse click away from real estate consumers who are looking to buy and sell property across the United States.
MLSCloud premiered in May 2009 as a cooperative service aimed at promoting collaboration between member real estate associations and Multiple Listing Services (MLSs) that operate public MLS websites. Since then, participation has nearly doubled from 350,000 real estate agent and broker members to 610,000. The most recent addition is the New Orleans Metropolitan Association of REALTORS®, which contributed more than 5,000 MLS members to the MLSCloud family.
“We welcome the participation of the New Orleans Metropolitan Association of REALTORS® in MLSCloud,” said HAR President and CEO Bob Hale. “More than half a million agents and brokers see the value in promoting real estate information and transparency on the Web that directly benefits the consumer.”
“MLSs around the country are realizing, as we did, that MLSCloud presents an ideal environment in which to easily and inexpensively build on the success of other thriving public MLS websites,” said MRIS President and CEO David Charron. “At the end of the day, that translates to more transactions.”
