Triad MLS Information on Zillow and Trulia
The Triad MLS Board of Directors voted at their February 19th meeting to proceed with contract negotiations with Zillow. They did not vote to sign a contract. The Triad MLS Board is committed to pursuing the best possible terms for its members. The approval to sign any final agreement with Zillow will be made by the Board of Directors after input by the Syndication Task Force and will be dependent on the terms of the contract. If the contract is ultimately approved by the Triad MLS Board, Triad MLS will ONLY send listings of brokers who Opt-In. Brokers will continue to have the option to not participate. The Board is mindful of the April 7th deadline when ListHub will no longer distribute listings to Zillow and will make every effort to get the contract negotiated as soon as possible. Until a contract is finalized, the only means by which Triad MLS will send listings to Zillow is through ListHub at the Broker’s discretion.
Last week, news broke that ListHub would stop sending listings to Trulia on February 26th. However, today a judge ruled in favor of Trulia and ListHub will continue to supply that listing data to Trulia until the court holds a hearing on March 12th.
There continues to be legal issues between ListHub and Zillow/Trulia and it is unclear at this time how long the current data feed to Trulia through ListHub will continue beyond March 12th.
There is no way for us to predict what will happen and Firms should be prepared for worst case scenarios. In the interim, as stated previously, Triad MLS will continue to work on negotiations for a data license agreement with our member’s best interests in mind.
Triad MLS is pleased to announce that Matrix is NOW available to all Triad MLS members in parallel with our current Tempo/Fusion platforms.

Triad MLS Matrix Conversion Update!!
As we prepare to move from our current platforms, Tempo and Fusion, we wanted to get this information our to all Triad MLS members so you all could know what is coming and prepare accordingly. The document below gives you valuable information in regards to our conversion and we encourage all members to read and review.
We will keep you all up to date as we progress so you will know specific timelines. Thank you and we are very excited to bring this platform to our membership!
Triad MLS and AnnounceMyListing have implemented a new service that will send Listing Agents ONE email for every new listing they enter. This offers them the ability to auto-generate a social media announcement for that listing! There is only ONE email sent to ONLY the List Agent and they have the ability to opt-out should they not want to receive these.
This process began with listings that have a List Date greater than or equal to 10/13/2014. In addition, the email is sent to you ONLY when photos are available.
Please go to the following link for a Video and a Slide Show explaining exactly how this process works.
