More MLSs Add New-Home Listings

Sixteen multiple listing services nationwide recently have signed agreements to add new-home plans and community information in a “new home channel” on their MLS dashboard, announced Builders Digital Experience Inc., a homebuilder marketing company. 

BDX is a joint venture with Move Inc., the operator of realtor.com®, and Builder Homesite Inc., a homebuilder consortium. In recent months, realtor.com® added a “New Homes & Communities” section to its site, which is powered by BDX. 

“Across the country, over 63 percent of new homes are sold by agents, and our relationships with these MLSs allow them to bring an unprecedented level of new-home information and tools directly to their members,” says Tim Costello, CEO of BDX.

The following MLSs will soon be adding new-home information to their databases: 

  • Metropolitan Regional Information Systems (Washington, D.C., metro area)
  • California Regional Multiple Listing Service 
  • Austin Board of REALTORS® (Austin, Texas)
  • East Bay Regional Data Inc. (Concord, Calif.)
  • Contra Costa Association of REALTORS® (Walnut Creek, Calif.)
  • Bay East Association of REALTORS® (Pleasanton, Calif.)
  • Northeast Florida Multiple Listing Service (Jacksonville, Fla.)
