IDX Listing Broker Attribution Update.
Currently, our Internet Data Exchange (IDX) and Virtual Office Website (VOW) rules require displaying the Listing Agent and Listing brokerage name attribution. Effective September 1 the National Association of REALTORS (NAR) has amended the policy to give Brokers selection to add a phone number or email address.
In compliance with the NAR mandate, a new option has been added under the Preferences tab for “IDX/VOW Contact Info” in Paragon MLS. This addition will allow brokers to select a phone number or email address to be displayed in listings that go out in IDX and VOW data feeds. The default is set to “No Value Selected,” which is equivalent to not having selected an option. Per the NAR mandate, the Listing Participant must select the value; Bay East cannot pre-select for the Broker/MLS. Click here for step-by-step instructions.
