A year ago: We were launching the new version of Innovia Incorporating Data checker into our MLS Introducing a Revenue Sharing Program Adding REALIST™ to our MLS Introducing Forms Simplicity
Staying on course Presidential Advisory Group on Communications We met and made a list of recommendations to the Board of Directors including: Quarterly meetings of the Brokers of Record Monthly Meetings of the Board of Directors Two General Membership Meetings per year ( with a nominal fee to cover the food expense) Email all members with specific information Continue at a glance, but change the format
PAG Recommendations Communicate, via blast e-mail, to all members regular and useful information Post agendas and minutes from Committee and Board meetings Focus on more task force and less committees
Kept on going…. This summer I reached out to you, the Broker of Record, and had small lunch or breakfast meetings near your office. I asked the same question to each group: “Tell me the 3 most important things the Association should provide to support your real estate practice”
The answer: 1) MLS and good data 2) Professional development/ education on key issues, changing issues, etc. 3) Networking and communications on key industry issues
The “ah” moment “we are in agreement on the important functions” The majority of you believe the Association is on track and doing a great job. You validated of our mission and our program of work And, you encouraged us to have an open dialogue
Let’s fall back to revisit our 2010 Brokers’ Meeting Automated Valuation and REALTOR® Value Map Revenue Share with Corelogic™ ( Partner InfoNet) Cooperative Agreements
Under Construction Forms and Transaction Management Forms Simplicity Revenue Sharing What’s this all about? Cooperative Agreements Trend, MRIS, Coastal, and others…..
MLS Value National demographic information National real estate sales information NAR has a program RPR that keeps any and all revenue generated Many MLS are investigating other options and SCAOR has been offered agreement with Core Logic( Marketlinx) for SCAOR Data called Revenue Sharing.
PRESENTLY We placed a hold on the RVM based on concerns from some appraisers and others about automated valuations. Have you visited Zillow or houselogic.com? Do you see the zestimates?
What is RVM? REALTOR® Value Map RVM is a home value estimator based on information in our MLS. Visitors may access the RVM and automatically adjust the value of a property based on certain characteristics of a home; Type of home, number of bedrooms, number of bathrooms, and total rooms of the house or the square feet and age of the home. Visitor will indicate they have made a revision and RVM will recalculate based on comparable sales.
RVM When that visitor leaves the site, the adjustments from their information is not saved. “one time, real time”
TODAY After months of continued due diligence, the MLS Committee recommends moving forward with Corelogic Partner InfoNet program With enhancements for a data cooperative agreement and with use of the RVM.
TOMORROW The MLS can not rest. It continually has new rules, new products, new services, and new ideas to meet the ever changing technology around us. We need to move forward on key issues. NAR will discuss the Franchisor IDX issue in November. The recommendation from the NAR MLS is to rescind.
Protecting The Data “what are you doing to protect the data?” is a question for the SCAOR MLS and for each Participant to answer. The MLS uses a second level authentication to restrict unauthorized access The MLS uses IDX and RETS agreements to restrict unauthorized data transmission, including a license agreement
Protecting the data Know your web providers Know your vendors Remind your licensees Report suspected activity to SCAOR Today data is vulnerable to: Screen scrapers Sham operators Syndication and resyndication

BROKER INDEPENDENCE Each Broker of Record (Participant) has the ability to opt of out of any of these programs. Last year, 1 one broker elected to opt out of the RVM program. InfoNet agreement is at the MLS/Association level Brokers normal course of business is unchanged Brokers use of their own listings is unimpeded
Partner InfoNet Helps identify and stop unpermitted uses of our data. “ Your listing data is valuable and in demand.

Strategic Plan We completed our next 5 year plan in August with the assistance of volunteers, board members, and the guidance of NAR. We were lead by NAR planner, Alice Martin. We have a vision and specific goals to help our members. Our incoming Committee Chairs have met and received the Strategic Plan and are planning on programs and activities to achieve the goals. Communications will continue to be the focus for us as we move forward. We can‟t do all of this alone. We need you to continue to partner with us. Goal 1: Efficiently and effectively utilize technology to engage and educate members Goal 2: Have an environment that focuses on professional development and training. Goal 3: Have an organizational structure that provides the necessary support for carrying out its goals and objectives. Goal 4: Advocate public policies that advance the real estate industry, private property rights, sustainable real property ownership and housing opportunities Goal 5: Have active and engaged members who see value in their association services.
