In 2001, leaders of State-Wide MLS (RI), MLS Property Information Network (MA) and SmartMLS (CT) formed the “Northeast Regional MLS Alliance”, a cross-border MLS reciprocity network. The first of its kind in the country, the Alliance provided members of the participating MLSs limited access to each other’s on-line systems, enabling agents to peruse the listing database of a neighboring state in an effort to better serve their clients, yet without having to be an actual member and bearing its corresponding cost. Further, for a nominal fee, an agent could add a listing to an Alliance MLS system, thereby greatly enhancing the marketability of that property without having the cost of multiple MLS memberships.
Listing Input – Although State-Wide MLS members will have access to the CT and MA MLS systems, you will not have the ability to enter or modify listings electronically. However, listings can be entered into these cooperating systems by completing the appropriate listing agreements of that host system and submitting them email for entry by their staff.
