MLS Fees

Our local MLS has decided to begin charging $750 per year to post tours. I'm curious on if anyone else outside the DC area also gets charged.

"Hi Laura, No, we never decided to invest, instead we went with Canon 6D cameras to phase out our old ones.  The 6D have a wireless system built in that allows remote shooting with your phone, point to point, live preview, etc.  Great for…"

"Have you tried this yet? I'm very curious about a great app for my Ipad or iphone to camera. Unfortunately, the canon app just doesn't get great reviews...so I just don't want to put out the money for it."

"Wow that's quite an unfortunate user experience. You can barely noticed that there's an alternate virtual tour. We do the syndication on a per-MLS basis, so it's not hard for us to automate this message. Is there a way to link…"

Dave Ruff replied to Ted Wiatrak's discussion MLS Fees
"That's a great help. I appreciate it!  The tech-saavy agent seems to have figured out the part where they have to select Tour #2.  That's something I'll include in my notification Email.  Thanks!  The Agents are…"

Ted Wiatrak replied to Ted Wiatrak's discussion MLS Fees
"The tour is still there, but your have to bring up the default tour then click on "#2".  See http://www.homesdatabase.com/homes-for-sale/VA/STONE-RIDGE/20105/24786-GYPSUM-WAY-85867211  for an example. We usually include…"

"Whoa even with the $750 fee it *still* requires manual intervention? That is insane. We were not aware of this.  Would it be helpful if we sent an email to the agent at syndication time to explain this? What should the email say?Alan"

Ted Wiatrak replied to Ted Wiatrak's discussion MLS Fees
"Hi Dave, If the agent loads the photos before you link the Virtual Tour, the MRIS tour is the default.  This uses low-res images, so it is to the agent's advantage to change your tour to be the default tour.  You still need to link…"
