Is your MLS in jeopardy of folding????

With the DOJ at the heals of most every MLS in the county, may MLS's are in jeopardy of total collapse.  As REALTORS®, we must come to understand what it is the DOJ, Department of Justice. really wants.  When looking at the DOJ web site, one would think they want to put us out of business...  But I think it is just the opposite.  They want us to service our customers and clients MORE...  I found a blog titled "The War Against The MLS Continues | The MLS Must Fall!" dated may 6, 2008, and I think they are saying the sky is falling.... Look at and how it is doing business.  They are winning awards and the consumar is getting what the DOJ wants for the most part. is leading the industyr and setting standards that all MLS's could learn from....

I believe many MLS's don't realize the challenges ahead that many will face.  Many folks should check to see if they can export their current MLS data into Excel.  I am running both a website MLS service and a desktop version...if our MLS gets the plug pulled I will still have the complete market data for the past 5 years.  Being prepared for the unknown has it's rewards.
