    • Listing Syndication 101
      NRVAR Technology Committee
      April 4, 2011
    • What IS Listing Syndication?
      “Real estate listing syndication is the process of getting a listing's information displayed on other sites around the Internet. This can be a manual task, but is more effective if somehow done with an automated process.”

    • Listing Exposure Statement
      Your listing presentations should now include a “Listing Exposure” statement.
      Sellers want to know where their listings are being marketed online.
      Agents need to know where consumers are viewing listing information.
    • How Does Syndication Work?
      Listing entered or changed MLS
      Listing syndicator picks up the information
      Buyers find the listings when searching online!
      Listings appear online on syndicated channels
    • Where Do the Listings Go?
    • Syndicate And….?
      There will be 2 types of AGENT ACTIONS:
      Those who SYNDICATE AND FORGET IT
      Those who SYNDICATE AND FOLLOW IT
    • Why Syndicate and Follow?
      “Just syndicating and nothing more - pushing a listing out all over the place and assuming that the phone is going to ring . . . and then if it does, assuming that it rang because of that syndication based exposure . . . is sort of like firing a rifle into the sky and waiting for dinner to fall onto your plate.”

    • But My Brokerage Syndicates Too!
      For the most part, your BROKERAGE syndication feed will trump the MLS syndication feed.

    • Brokerage Syndication
      Listing entered/changed in MLS
      Brokerage picks up listing feed
      Syndicator picks up listings from brokerage
      Listings appear online on syndicated channels
    • Other Situations:
      Using a manual syndication source like Vflyer or Postlets
      Having your own website solution with syndication
      Scraper sites

    • Syndication Isn’t Perfect
      Your email address is what tags YOU to your listing.
      Email address must be the same across all feed channels.
      Missing data can cause a syndicator and/or a third party to reject the listing.
      Some third parties don’t pick up the feed as often as others.
    • Basic Steps to Take
      Make sure your email address is the same across ALL syndication channels, your brokerage and MLS.

    • 2. Make sure you enter AT LEAST 10 PHOTOS of your listing.
    • 3. Fill out as much information as you can when entering a listing. Missing fields can cause a missing listing.
    • Keep your listings updated and put all of your listing addresses on a Google Alert.
      Google.com/alerts
    • Create a profile account on all syndication websites. Basic accounts are free and it helps consumers find you when they need more information.
      A great source for making sure you are on major channels and what they offer:
