FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Real estate agents in 42 Indiana counties are working to direct house hunters to a regional website that features up-to-date information about housing markets.
The new Indiana Regional MLS will eventually allow house hunters to view more than 750,000 listings from 13 Realtor associations in Indiana.
Agents say the move is an effort to fight competition from online sites such as Yahoo and Zillow, which often contain outdated information.
Fort Wayne broker Patrick Maloblocki tells The Journal Gazette that prices and square footage can be wrong on national online sites because the data go through various channels before appearing online.
Agents say the new www.reindiana.com site also will eliminate the need for them to pay multiple fees for doing business in markets outside their areas.
