MLS Listing Syndication War Rages

UltimateIDX share their views on the MLS listing syndication war developing between MLS Boards and aggregators such as Zillow, Trulia and Realtor.com in several major markets including Denver’s MetroList and their recent dropping of Diverse Solutions:

It’s Vegas Baby

While our UltimateIDX Clients are aware of our recent move to Las Vegas, Nevada this is the first public announcement of our corporate move.

DoFollow Real Estate Blogs

Background:
A couple of years ago Google devaluated (and in some instances penalized for) reciprocal link exchanges by Real Estate sites and God Bless them for doing so.
