StreetEasy Snags All Brooklyn MLS Listings

streeteasy-logo.jpgStreetEasy just scored a major coup in its bid to be the dominant aggregator of listings in the city: As of this week, the Brooklyn MLS (Multiple Listings Service) is giving StreetEasy access to all of its listings, which include properties from roughly 200 (mostly smaller) agencies in the borough. That comes out to about 2,500 new listings in neighborhoods like Sheepshead Bay, Gravesend and Canarsie that have previously been under-represented on the site. Most importantly, from our standpoint at least, is that StreetEasy will get the complete address data all these places, information which MLS and most mom-and-pop brokers have guarded closely. A giant step for transparency!

  • That’s assuming Street Easy doesn’t put those addresses behind its pay wall.

  • Note he did not say “a giant step for transparency even for those unwilling to pay for a service that costs money to provide.”

  • Do they allow people to post who are selling by owner?

  • Snark,
    Good point. But you know how we interwebs kids are. Everything should be free (except for the goods and services I provide, of course).

  • POSTER.. Do you know WHICH MLS is participating??? There are two MLS services in Brooklyn, one is primarily for BayRidge & Bensonhurst (brooklynmls.com) and the other is the larger MLS (bnymls.com)

    Just Wondering

    I hear ya. That’s why I always laugh when I hear people prattle on about how they are going to monetize Facebook, Twitter, LatestShinyHypeSite, etc.

    Tell me about it. It’s KILLING the newspaper industry!
