International MLS Looks for Partners

Property Portal Watch Article on The International MLS

by Alice Allan, Property Portal Watch

US-based company The International Realty Inc. says it has created a world first with its international property search offering, dubbed the international MLS or “IMLS”.

CEO Dan Nussbaum, who started gathering listings for the IMLS in October 2009, explains that it works on a free-to-list model, with commissions shared for each sale.

“All listings are displayed on [the IMLS] for free, providing commissions for each referred client when a sale occurs,” Nussbaum explains, adding that all client leads are sent to the listing broker.

According to Nussbaum, the IMLS currently has nearly 100,000 listings from “top agencies around the world” including Coldwell Banker Mexico and a number of Coldwell Banker’s affiliates in the Caribbean.

As well as displaying these listings on theinternationalrealty.com and theinternationalmls.com, the IMLS has also added its listing search to six real estate agency sites in the US, Canada, UK and Turkey, as well as property portals 1casa.com, 1st-for-french-property.co.uk, and go-to-france.co.uk.

theinternationalrealty.com adds that “we are also delivering property listings via our own XML data export feeds to some of the largest international real estate sites in the world,” however Nussbaum has declined to name these syndication partners.

Nussbaum does say that the IMLS system has recently resulted in the sale of a Brazilian property to a buyer in the UAE. He adds that he expects the IMLS to grow “exponentially” over the coming months as it is just now entering the US market and preparing to announce its first US collaboration agreement.

The International Realty, Inc. Launches New Ventures

TIR Announces International Property Search and The International MLS [IMLS]

Los Angeles, CA, January 4, 2011: With almost 100,000 property listings in 35 countries and more than 300 new home developments in 25 countries, The International Realty Inc. announces the launch of The International MLS [The IMLS] with the world’s first commission-shared international property search which is being delivered around the world for the maximum exposure of property listings.

The free search, which can sit on any website in the world, delivers listings as if that website or agency had the listings themselves, is completely UNBRANDED and will enable the website owner to share in commissions generated when a lead from that website turns into a sale. All website owners carrying the search can expect their property offerings to grow exponentially in the coming months as TIR are now just entering the USA market and are preparing an announcement of their first USA collaboration agreement.

The company’s CEO, Dr. Daniel Nussbaum says, “Response by the top global property agencies to promote their properties on to The International MLS has been exceptional, and the great thing about it all is that people can make money for doing absolutely nothing but placing the search on their site. As all of the leads will come into us, we will be distributing those leads to those agencies which have supplied the listings. This will ensure that all clients are professionally treated all across the world as it brings agencies from around the world to participate.”

All leads are tracked and credited properly and the company has stated that they have selected the agencies they wish to work with based on their size, scope, reputation and presence in their marketplace.

The IMLS greatly increases the exposure of property listings all around the world, as well as enabling agents and brokers globally an opportunity to earn a shared commission by taking advantage of their current website traffic. It is a free to list/commission-share model inspired by the MLS in the United States, but accounting for differences as to the nature of collaborating globally with estate agents around the world.

“There is no charge by us to any of the agencies for us to load and post all of the property listings and no cost for anyone to take on their own international search. We will win when EVERYONE wins and sales are made”, states Nussbaum.
