Just last week, our MLS has incorporated VOW. We now have to answer a few questions when we input a listing.

  • Can this listing appear on other web sites
  • Do you want to have the address listed
  • Do you want people to be able to comment on your listing
  • Do you want people to be able to search and use your listing as comps.

I think every MLS should be doing this.

Editor's Note
There's not been much conversation about VOWs since the NAR/DOJ Settlement last year. Anyone care to report what's been happening in your area?John

The exact same Questions are on ALL of the SVAR Listings Agreements here in Virginia . What's Important in these days and times, is not whether someone can comment on Your Listings,BUT is it Authorized by Your Clients/Sellers . Now I can't see anyone NOT wanting their property in as many places on the Internet as they can possibly be , but I have had Clients that wanted No One to be able to Comment on their Home/Property . Whenever I get a Client that even hesitates about having their Property on the Internet , I just smile and say "Distribution Trumps Destination" . Thanks Saul :)

I have to agree with Win, and not just because I am an old fogey. Email is terrific as a tool, but there is nothing like the personal touch to win you repeat customers and friends. I can cite no statistics, but I can say that my young clients are as likely to phone me as to email me, even though they know that I will receive my emails just as quickly through my Blackberry. For any substantive discussion, they almost always call, with the exception of the young folks in Iraq or Afghanistan. Time zones are an issue there, of course. I have closed no deals by email, although I have initiated many contacts that way. The folks who only email me have proven to be less serious clients who tend to waste more of my time than those who use both media.
