Imagine your MLS went down. Do you have a backup plan?
Recently the Rapatonni MLS system was hacked leaving thousands of brokers and hundreds of thousands of consumers with no access to add, edit, delete, or publish listing data.
Listings aren't on their own websites
The listings aren't on Zillow.
It's a HUGE problem!
And the MLS's don't have a backup solution!
Let Us Back Up Your Listings For You!
Hopefully, you NEVER need us (That's why it's called a backup), but if you ever do, here is what we can do for you.
- Ingest and continually update all of your MLS / IDX listings for you and store them in a database completely separate from your MLS provider.
- Provide you with a user interface to add/edit/delete listings (if your MLS ever goes down).
- Syndicate your listings to third-party portals such as Zillow, Realtor.com, LeadingRE, and Luxury Real Estate.
- Provide an IDX feed of your listings to your brokerage website so your search keeps working.
Brokerage and MLS FAQ's
Doesn't my MLS have a backup of our listings?
Some MLSs do (most of the big ones) but some also don't. Either way, if your entire MLS gets hacked like what happened with Rapatonni, then those backups are potentially compromised as well. It's important to have a "third party" backup of your systems. One that is completely unrelated to the platform that has been hacked.
My brokerage already backs up our listings why do I need this service?
Many larger brokerages do in fact have a backup of their listing data (which is best practice) however what they do not have is technology that allows for the immediate adding, editing, deleting, and syndication of those listings to major portals. This technology is very expensive to build and maintain, and even the largest franchises do not have MLS type technology available.
Would you like us to back up your listings "right now"?
