ListHub enables faster, fresher listing updates
Twenty one ListHub publisher websites have adopted new enhancements that allow listing data to refresh every 1 to 2 hours MORGANTOWN, W.Va., March 18, 2019 -- ListHub, the nation's leading provider of listing syndication services and performance marketing metrics, today announced a new enhancement to its listing syndication service to allow for faster, fresher listing updates to all publishers in the ListHub network. Currently 21 publishers are participating in the program with more to be added in the coming months. More than 65,000 brokerages nationwide currently leverage ListHub's listing syndication service. For many home buyers, the most challenging part of their search is finding the right home. According to the realtor.com® 2019 National Housing Forecast, national inventory increases will remain low at less than 7 percent. In this highly competitive market, it's critical for buyers to have access to the most updated listing data. To address this need, ListHub recently piloted a new program to give select publisher websites the option to receive incremental feed updates. By delivering only the listing data that has changed from the MLS since the last update, instead of the full feed, ListHub makes it easier for publishers to manage and process the data quickly and refresh their websites more frequently. The program is now available to all ListHub publishers. "In today's digital, on-demand world, ListHub plays a vital role in the real estate industry," said Celeste Starchild, SVP with Move, Inc., which operates ListHub. "We're focused on providing the most effective and efficient service to help our broker customers market their clients' homes to a wide audience, accurately and responsibly." For brokers and listing agents, this new program will allow participating publishers to pick up their new or updated listing content every 1 to 2 hours so the listing is frequently refreshed on those publishers the broker has selected for advertising through ListHub. Currently the following publishers are participating and processing the incremental feeds: AdWerx Back At You Media Close2Homes.com HAR.com HomeFinder.com Homes.com HomeWinks Hommati IdealEstate Imprev Keyboom Land Network LuxuryRealEstate.com Mrktstreet Nest.me Nestigator Nobbas REA Global Property Network RealtyExecutives.com SearchALLProperties by L2L TurnKey More publisher partners will be added in the coming months.

Rapattoni Releases MLS Listing Syndication Manager
SIMI VALLEY, Calif., May 8, 2015 – Rapattoni Corporation (Rapattoni) announced today that the new Rapattoni MLS Listing Syndication Manager launched on May 7, 2015. This important new component was released as a free update for all Rapattoni MLS customers, allowing MLSs to easily set up listing syndication feeds for third-party services such as Zillow and Trulia from within the MLS. Rapattoni MLS provides an intuitive and graphically pleasing user interface which operates natively on PCs and Mac® computers as well as mobile devices.

MLS staff can also generate reports showing opt-in status and EULA acceptance info for all offices within an individual syndication feed. "Our new Listing Syndication Manager makes setting up listing feeds easier than ever for MLS staff while empowering brokers and office managers to take control of their listing data," said Destyn Dagle, Director of MLS & IWS Software at Rapattoni. "With options for configuring default opt-in status and custom license agreements, the new system is flexible enough to meet the needs of our MLS customers as well as their syndication partners." Madeleine Talbot-Leighton, Product Manager at Rapattoni, added, "Our customers have recently expressed a great deal of interest in various syndication services and our new Listing Syndication Manager will allow them to send their listings to more third-party sites than ever before, ensuring that the public will find accurate listing data no matter which sites they check.

Reesio Launches CRM, Listing Syndication, and Its Own E-Signatures; Pivots to Paid Pricing Model
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19, 2014 -- Reesio, the real estate technology startup that has focused primarily on transaction management during its 21-month existence, has announced the launch of several new features that it feels will propel it faster and faster towards becoming an all-in-one technology platform: CRM and Lead Tracking/Management Listing Syndication to popular portals like Trulia, HomeFinder, and Foreclosure.com Its own E-Signatures powered by Adobe EchoSign. The ability for users to turn on/turn off their Reesio single property page websites. All of the above new features are being launched and tightly integrated into Reesio's existing transaction management product. According to Reesio Co-Founder and CEO, Mark Thomas, these new features are based entirely on feedback from its existing base of customers, who have been asking for CRM and more control over their single property page websites for awhile. "A lot of companies talk a good game about being there for its customers and listening to their feedback, but we really put that into action by offering 24x7 chat support and releasing new features every single week based on customer feedback in order to constantly keep our product on the cutting edge." As Thomas discussed earlier this year with Inman News, all of these new features tie into Reesio's goal of becoming the go-to technology platform that has everything that modern real estate professionals need. According to a WAV Group study that was released earlier this year, the number one pain point for brokers and agents is not having all of their technology needs in one place. "Real estate professionals hate having to cobble together 4 or 5 different products to do their job. They want and need everything all in one place. So many products do just one thing. While we're certainly not 100% done, we are the only company with the goal of building out all of the features that real estate professionals need to do their job. And in a beautifully designed format that is fully integrated and not clunky to use." Ending DocuSign relationship in favor of Adobe EchoSign One of the changes that Reesio is making will be the launch of its own e-signatures, powered by Adobe EchoSign. Since Reesio launched in November 2012, it has always used DocuSign's e-signatures integrated within its transaction management product. That integration with DocuSign has ended and Reesio has instead integrated Adobe EchoSign's e-signatures into its product. With the new Adobe EchoSign integration, users will no longer be required to have a separate paid e-signatures account with another provider -- users will simply need a Reesio account, and e-signatures will automatically be included, thus saving Reesio's customers a considerable outside expense. "Reesio customers were frustrated with having to pay for a separate e-signature account and then linking that outside account within Reesio in order to e-sign documents," said Thomas. With our new Adobe EchoSign integration, there won't be any separate paid e-signature accounts or linking required. Just use Reesio and you'll be all set." There are other reasons for the change. According to Thomas, "DocuSign bought a competitor of our's (Cartavi) 15 months ago, and recently re-branded that product to be called 'DocuSign Transaction Rooms'. It became increasingly difficult to differentiate our branding from them when we were essentially offering a competing product directly within our own product." Thomas said that Adobe EchoSign approached him about a dedicated partnership earlier this year, and it was clear "that they really wanted to work with us and become a true partner. Even though EchoSign doesn't currently have a big presence within the real estate industry, they're owned by a publicly-traded company in Adobe, and they have a lot of Fortune 500 clients. "EchoSign is owned by one of the top brands in the world in Adobe, and has a world-class list of high profile customers using its product", said Thomas. "We couldn't be more thrilled to be working with them". Pivot to a Paid Product Partly due to the switch of eliminating DocuSign and offering its own E-Signatures through Adobe EchoSign, and partly due to other factors, Reesio has also become a purely paid product. "By offering our own e-signatures without requiring users to have a separate paid e-signatures account with another company, we have no choice but to begin charging for our product." However, there are other reasons that Thomas cited for the change as well, including: As Reesio has added more and more features in becoming a one-stop-shop (like CRM and Listing Syndication), the direction that Reesio is heading in is that of becoming a "premium product" that does everything for real estate professionals. Thomas said the Reesio team found that over the past 9 months while they were giving their product away for free, it actually had a negative connotation with their users. According to Thomas, "We had many new users who were hesitant to use our product because they thought that something must be wrong with it if it was free." When asked how the reception of switching to a paid product has been among its existing base of customers, Thomas said he was personally overwhelmed by the positive response. "To be honest, we were a bit nervous that there would be a lot of backlash. However, we're truly humbled by the positive response from our existing customers, who already started paying us 6 weeks ago even though we haven't officially required them to do so until last week. Essentially, we've had customers voluntarily paying us for the past month and a half. You don't get that unless you have a great product that users love." One such customer is Brian Lyons, a Realtor from Urban Homes Real Estate in San Diego. Brian states, "We've been using Reesio for the past 15 months, and not only is it a great product that does everything that we need all in one place, but the Reesio team provides Zappos-like customer service 24x7. We were even voluntarily paying for the product every month while it was free because we appreciated how much it streamlined our business."

ListHub and NAR Align to Guide Realtors® in Global Real Estate
  MORGANTOWN, WV, July 23, 2014 -- ListHub, the nation's leading listing syndicator and centralized intelligence platform for the real estate industry, today announces a new relationship with the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) to guide Realtors® in maximizing their opportunities in the global real estate marketplace. The agreement provides real estate professionals with best-in-class international listing distribution and global education as well as discounts for Realtors® to leverage worldwide advertising exposure available through ListHub Global. "The prevalence of international investment in the United States presents a tremendous opportunity for Realtors® to expand their market and reach international buyers and investors, if they are prepared to do so," said Steve Brown, 2014 president of NAR. "This arrangement offers the education and tools to provide global real estate service, as well as an economic advantage for Realtors® to reach the international marketplace through ListHub Global." The agreement provides discounts for NAR's Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) curriculum, a series of global real estate courses that provide the knowledge, research, network and tools to help Realtors® globalize their business and acquire international clients, for ListHub Global customers. CIPS-certified Realtors® have access to the CIPS Referral Network, comprised of 2,300 elite agents in 45 countries worldwide. The agreement also provides CIPS designees with a 10 percent discount for the ListHub Global service. The ListHub Global network offers brokers the opportunity to increase global exposure of their listings within a controlled platform, with ListHub's signature streamlined management, comprehensive data protections and unmatched performance metrics. With the merger of ListHub Global network partners EdenHome and ListGlobally, the ListHub Global network includes more than 70 international property publishers in over 40 countries, reaching 60 million international customers. Helping Realtors® Become Global Experts The CIPS program helps Realtors® develop the specialized expertise required in an international transaction, from currency issues and financing to visa and tax laws. The exclusive discounts available through the arrangement with ListHub Global empower Realtors® to invest in the combined resources for an unparalleled market advantage when working with international buyers. The international market is at peak levels, reaching a record $92.2 billion in sales between April 2013 to March 2014 according to NAR's 2014 Profile of International Home Buying Activity, released this month. Sales to international clients have jumped 35 percent from the previous period's level of $68.2 billion. The report also highlights a substantial increase in sales to buyers from China, increasing from $12.8 billion in the prior period to $22 billion in the 12 months ending in March 2014, and now accounting for nearly 25 percent of total sales to international buyers. Buyers from China generally purchased in higher-priced markets, and 76 percent of reported transactions were all-cash purchases. Appreciation of the Chinese yuan and affordable property contributed to the appeal of the U.S market for many buyers from China, according to the report. The ListHub Global network includes the leading real estate search website in China, SouFun, which reports more than three million unique visitors each day. Among the site's 12 million SouFun members, 25 percent have plans to invest in properties outside China within the next three years. "Buyers from China are predicted to continue to grow in the coming years, yet China's rigorous Internet regulations limit opportunities to advertise listings in mainland China without working directly with China's property portals," said Celeste Starchild, vice president and general manager of ListHub. "ListHub Global allows Realtors® to reach buyers in China within the same secure platform they use for national advertising, in a seamless experience that ensures the data is Multiple Listing Service (MLS)-accurate across the global network of real estate search websites." ListHub will host a free, 30 minute webinar July 24 at 4 p.m. EDT. Global Perspectives - Tips for Expanding Your Global Reach will be hosted by ListHub Global Team Leader Aldana Gentinetta and NAR's Director of Global Marketing and Business Development Katie Stouffs Grimes.

ListHub Surpasses 2012 Growth Rate with 36 New MLS Customers in 2013
  MORGANTOWN, W.Va., Nov. 6, 2013 -- ListHub™, the leading distributor of property listings to U.S. and international publisher websites and provider of performance metrics in real estate, operated by Move, Inc., (NASDAQ: MOVE) announced the addition of 36 new service agreements with multiple listing service organizations (MLSs) in 2013 to provide a secure and accurate platform to give brokers control over their online marketing choices. This year's agreements bring the total number of ListHub-enabled data sources to 450, and top ListHub's 2012 performance in the first 10 months of this year. Many of the MLSs that have joined the ListHub network this year, such as the Roanoke Valley Association of REALTORS®, are introducing an MLS-connected option for listing distribution and reporting for their members for the first time. "Our association is pleased to select ListHub as an additional benefit for our broker members," said Betty Kingery, president of the Roanoke Valley Association of REALTORS®. "We look forward to working with ListHub to provide a safe, accurate method for our brokers to market their firms' listings online." Several MLSs had previously used alternate methods to support members' listing syndication, such as the Corpus Christi Association of REALTORS® (CCAR). After two years of managing syndication for their members independently, CCAR has returned to the ListHub network with a new agreement to provide listing syndication and metrics to their broker and agent members. "We are extremely pleased with the continuing growth we have seen this year as a trusted provider of service to the industry," said Luke Glass, general manager of ListHub. "It is especially rewarding to have earned the return business of clients who have experienced first-hand the complexity of managing listing distribution independently and have chosen to leverage the integrated platform tools, analytics, and data protections that ListHub provides." The following MLSs have formed contract agreements with ListHub in 2013: Alabama Lake Martin Area Association of REALTORS® Arkansas Hot Springs Board of REALTORS® California Ridgecrest Area Association of REALTORS® Inc.

New Website Transforms Listing Syndication Market
Introducing Listing-Feed.com, the web's first premium listing syndication tool. With roots in New England and contracts with the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and the Boston Globe, Listing-Feed.com has opened the doors to connect luxury real estate listings with prestigious websites. Now REALTORS® can broaden their listing reach into previously un-tapped markets with one simple membership. Listing Feed automatically syndicates choice properties (ie. those valued at $500,000 or more) from their local MLS to a network of nationally and internationally viewed websites. With the majority of second home real estate listings sought by out-of-state buyers, REALTORS® have been missing their mark. In December of last year, The New York Times had over 508,000 searches for up-market properties in Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire. In that same period, there were less than 3,000 listings posted for those states. Listing Feed is designed to bridge that gap. "We're doing right by agents," says Jeremiah Poljacik, Creator of Listing-Feed.com. "By white labeling our product we can give it all back to the brokers and their agents--the brand recognition, backlink and the traffic." As the Owner and Publisher of New England Real Estate Magazine, Poljacik knows what brokers are looking for: "Ease-of-use, automatic updates and no contract." Listing-Feed also provides accountable reporting and listing performance for no additional cost. Additionally, Poljacik sees the current emerging trends in the online marketplace. "Many of my print customers regularly express interest in the online marketplace, However, it's beyond difficult to forge individual relationships with the big online ad publications." By creating bulk accounts with in-demand websites, ListingFeed bundles ads at a better rate, offering clients a simple, automated listing syndication, saving them the headache and cost of having to negotiate dozens of advertising commitments and contracts. At 32, Poljacik is at the forefront of the start-up scene that's gaining traction in Portland, Maine. Working out of Think Tank CoWorking, a collaborative workspace for start-ups, ListingFeed is building a national sales force and creating alliances with top-notch programmers. Forging ahead, ListingFeed is poised to scale-out to include markets all over the country. "I wanted to create a new kind of real estate syndication company," says Poljacik. "One that connects the expansive new mobile marketplace. This is the future of premium online real estate syndication." Agents and brokers are encouraged to see for themselves the benefit of joining Listing-Feed.com.

Displaying Online Listings Appropriately and Accurately
This article comes to us from the REALTOR.com Lockbox blog. You can view the original article at Lockbox.REALTOR.com. When real consumers search for homes, they want to see what’s really available. The actual homes that are listed for sale. The homes they have a real opportunity to consider and purchase. Not homes that are off the market, or homes that sold months, or even years ago. Sellers don’t want to compete with artificially inflated levels of inventory that doesn’t actually exist, and buyers don’t want to browse listings they can’t actually buy. That’s why REALTOR.com® accurately represents what’s actually happening in the market. As real estate practitioners, you have rules that you need to play by. When you get listings, you list them as active. When property statuses change, you make the appropriate adjustments. And when properties sell, you take them off the market. If you don’t there are repercussions. Board violations. Ethical considerations. Professional backlash. A lot of major national sites don’t play by the same rules you do. The quality of data and attention to what’s actually happening just isn’t there. REALTOR.com® is the site that actually plays by the same rules brokers and agents do. When a property is listed for sale, REALTOR.com® shows it. When a property sells and is off the market, REALTOR.com® removes it. On REALTOR.com®, only the listing broker’s and listing agent’s branding, logos or photos are allowed to appear on any given listing. Period. We’re able to do these things because REALTOR.com® has direct connections to over 867 MLS systems across the country.
