Listings that happen in Vegas won’t stay in Vegas. The Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors has changed its mind about sending listings to Zillow and ListHub.

After previously saying that listings would no longer be automatically sent to the portals, starting next year, the trade group has reversed the decision. In a document dated Nov. 15, the GLVAR Board of directors said it will “continue syndicating its MLS data to third parties,” Inman reported.

The decision came after the group heard “concerns this month from many of its members.” GLVAR has allowed brokerages to shut off automatic syndication — but the change would have meant firms would choose where to send listings.

“We believed this was the right decision, but we have since heard from some of our members who expressed concern that this change could have created a hardship for them and may have the potential to detract from the way they currently do business,” GLVAR president Chris Bishop told Inman.

The group had previously said it “knows that protection of MLS data is a priority for its members.” For its part, Zillow had deemed the move a disservice to agents and consumers — while ListHub said it would be a complication for brokers. [Inman] — Meenal Vamburkar
