Straightening Out the System with .MLS Domain Extensions
Real estate professionals in the US and many other parts of the world rely on reciprocal data-sharing systems called Multiple Listing Services to make and clear a market in real estate. However, because there is no unitary MLS, brand dilution is a major concern for licensed agents. Almost any website can claim to offer "MLS Access,” even when it’s providing only a portion of the listings that might actually be active or relevant. The development of the .MLS Domain.
Licensed Realtors within the US National Association of Realtors (NAR) plan to offer the .MLS Domain Extension in order to create a system that will allow buyers to know when they are accessing the most comprehensive listings services. This assurance will protect not only the reputation of the listings services themselves, but of real estate professionals, who require the trust of wary consumers.
US registrants for .MLS domains will be limited to licensed real-estate agents. Elsewhere, registrants may also need a licensing agreement with the rights-holder of any relevant trademarks, as well as licensure and membership in relevant national and local real estate agent associations.
