Minnesota Data Share Update
As announced by your REALTOR Associations, the Minnesota MLS data share organization SASI’s data vendor contract ended April 30.
We are pleased to announce that the participating REALTOR Associations now have an alternative method for sharing MLS listings with offers of compensation included. This sharing is available through the Find application, available to you as a NorthstarMLS core service.
Association listings currently available through Find are the Duluth Area Association of Realtors and the Realtors Association of Southern Minnesota (Mankato).
Other Association MLS listings that will be added soon are: West Central (Willmar), Greater Alexandria, Northwest Minnesota (Bemidji), Lakes Region (Fergus Falls) and Southeast Minnesota (Rochester). We will update you as these become available.
As of now, members of these Associations can view NorthstarMLS listing reports (including the offer of compensation) in Find.
To access Find, select it from the External Links box here on the Matrix home screen:
Within Find, search your desired area, for example Duluth. On the listing detail pages, you will find a link like this:
Click the link to open an MLS report that includes the offer of compensation.
We understand this solution is not as convenient as being able to search and view the listings directly within NorthstarMLS, but we are pleased to be able to offer it as an alternative (to having nothing) to help you do business in Minnesota across the arbitrary boundaries between MLS’s.
