There are many websites that feed from the MLS; both the websites that feed and the manner in which they feed data is constantly changing.  These sites download from different MLS’s at different times.  Depending on the area, some websites are slow to download while others are fast.  We have very limited control over the content of these sites.  Fortunately, Ohio Broker Direct feeds to more sites than other real estate companies, although, those sites are also constantly changing and can no specific site can ever be guaranteed.  Each MLS establishes their own contracts with different sites.  Websites pull listing information as permitted by the local MLS & Board of Realtors into which the listing is uploaded.  Ohio Broker Direct, LLC does not have control over the rules and regulations of these entities nor the contracts to which they join or deny – rules and regulations are subject to change at any time through any MLS.
