Improvements Made to GLAR Data Sharing!

Just a few weeks ago, we informed you of our implementation of data sharing with the Greater Lansing Association of REALTORS® (GLAR). The incorporation of this data into Realcomp’s MLS systems makes MLS properties for Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton Counties (and surrounding areas) available to Realcomp REALTORS® through Realcomp’s systems and our other products and services.

The data sharing process for GLAR listings has been improved since that time in the following ways:

  • You can now request showings on these listings through the ShowingTime product
  • The listing import schedule has been enhanced to pull listing updates from the GLAR every ½ hour (instead of every 1 hour).

When the data sharing was implemented on Realcomp’s side initially, the following listing counts were added to Realcomp’s MLS database:

GLAR RESI Sale RESI Lease Multi-Family Vacant Land Commercial GRAND TOTAL
Listings 128,769 60 2,399 13,155 6,648 151,031
Photos 1,434,059 684 16,526 41,174 37,948 1,530,391
Virtual Tours 34,304 1 218 698 572 35,793

Here is a list of the GLAR listing statuses and the statuses to which they are converted in Realcomp’s systems:

GLAR STATUS RCO STATUS
Active ACTV
Active Backup ACTV
Contingent CCS
Cancelled UWTH
Closed SOLD
Expired EXPD
Pending PEND
Withdrawn CWTH

 

GLAR listings are identified in our system with an MLS number prefix of 63.

This collaboration not only brings more listing data to Realcomp REALTORS®, it also makes your MLS data available to GLAR members – giving your listings more exposure to other REALTOR® practitioners (and their customers and clients).

To access the GLAR MLS data, simply include these geographic areas in your next Realcomp MLS search!

Stay Safe When You Use Drone Photography and Honor Others' Privacy

As drones become ever more popular in the business and home entertainment sectors, privacy concerns abound – and incensed Americans are taking offensive action. With some states allowing private citizens to shoot at drones, safety and the protection of privacy and property are becoming an increasingly important facet with drone video usage in real estate marketing.
