SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MLS Grid will begin offering the Prescott Area Association of REALTORS® (PAAR) data access beginning January 25, 2023. This partnership with the Arizona-based organization supports MLS Grid’s efforts to modernize and standardize real estate data.
MLS Grid assists the multiple listing service (MLS) role of delivering timely, accurate, and comprehensive data to subscribers and technology companies. With more than 500 MLSs in existence nationwide, it’s a challenge for brokerages to combine data from numerous markets to fuel websites, marketing systems, market analytics, showing services, lockbox services, and brokerage management systems.
The Real Estate Standards Organization’s (RESO) Web API powers MLS Grid. The platform is built on trusted, open technology standards which help organizations efficiently deliver or receive data.
“We’ll be able to provide a faster, more efficient experience to MLS subscribers accessing and using licensed data,” said PAAR Chief Executive Officer Suzanne Westrum. “Our team is always looking for ways we can best serve our members and MLS Grid will help us further achieve this goal.”
MLS Grid is run by MLS executives and developers who understand the industry and the challenges brokers and associations face in a fast-evolving market.
“MLSs of any size share similar pain points with managing the licensing and compliance of data feeds. Our simplified process saves MLS staff significant time and resources,” said MLS Grid CEO Joseph Szurgyi. “We work with MLSs, brokers and tech companies to achieve a common goal while also helping implement the essential RESO data standards.”
MLS Grid is growing quickly and continues to support the adoption of RESO Web API throughout the industry. MLS Grid works with more than 1,450 data consumers and supports over 70,000 data licenses nationwide.
