…or the “Baltimore Orioles plan to learn football to compete with Denver Broncos”

Following today’s recent news, I was going to rant about the public facing MLS issue again.

But I already wrote that post back in 2011 when Sandicor launched their site.

MLS’ still don’t stand a chance to compete, and it’s still a waste of money. Nothing has changed.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming.

    Thanks for sharing

  • Still disagree. Not in full support of the idea, but MLSs can already compete. HAR.com competes with, or beats, the portals in total traffic. Accurate listings still count, and the portals don’t have them.

    You could definitely argue that the sellers aren’t being served by the agents if their listings are pulled from popular portals. But, could the MLS become an even bigger driver in that city if it pulled syndication from portals? Absolutely.

    • We can agree to disagree 🙂

      HAR.com has been around how long though? They have a 5 or 6 year head start on the others..

      • No disagreement there. It’s a big leap, but look how far Zillow has come in the last 6 years. The market changes quickly.

        • Agreed. But look at how many people they’ve hired and how much money it took to get there. Is the MLS industry going to put that same investment in?

          • That’s the huge hurdle. They have a big advantage in terms of content quality, but a huge disadvantage in being able to raise money.

          • I would be beyond shocked if any investor would invest in an MLS that is trying to make a technology play..
