REAL ESTATE DATA IS THREE DAYS OLD OR OLDER ON MOST WEBSITES
Buyers are now seeing only old, outdated listings and wrong information on websites like Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com. In January of 2014, The MLS created an artificial delay of three days.
It is now more necessary than ever before for buyers to work with a Downtown loft specialist Realtor so that the buyer can receive up-to-the-minute property information on lofts for sale and for lease.
The MLS released this notice on January 13, 2014:
The MLS™ Announces a New Listing Distribution Policy
Due to a growing concern among brokers and agents that their valuable listing and sales information is being given away and either sold back to them or to their competitors, The MLS™ is implementing a 48 hour delay on data feeds to third party websites such as Zillow, Trulia, LA Times, REALTOR.com, and numerous third party websites. This policy was implemented to sway consumer traffic back to broker and agent websites.
The real estate agents at the L.A. Loft Blog have notified The MLS that the artificial delay is not wanted by agents, brokers and members of the MLS. All sellers and all buyers want to see today’s correct information. They do not want to see old, incorrect property information on any website. We are confident that The MLS will reverse this decision and will work instead to deliver timely, up-to-date real estate information to the public.
For now, buyers must contact a Downtown specialist to request daily updated listings, timely real estate information and correct property details. Buyers who rely on popular consumer websites to see properties are now seeing information that is at least 3 or 4 days old, often much older.
To request access to new, up-to-date property details online, available every day for free, contact a Downtown specialist Realtor today:
