If we're smart, no. It makes no sense. Real estate is local and hyperlocal, and the result of attempting to standardize information across such a large expanse would confuse and misinform. But our industry doesn't tend to be that smart. LOL
PS. We already do have national listing services -- Point2 is one example.

We already have a national MLS.

What do you expect from the 'new thing' that is not provided by the Empire of Evil Intent or any of the national franchise websites.

Unfortunately, the products proposed and currently offered are not comprehensive lists of homes for sale but are managed, limited access portals controlled by NAR and its associations. 

What we need is a separation of the top five franchises from the rest of the industry. Then we will witness the democratization of the real estate business.

The problem may be too many different types of platforms being used across the counttry to consoldate. It would be nice, but the upgrades here in NH for a regional MLS are worse than when we had our own. It is like going back in time for technology

At least statewide it would be nice. We are close here in California. But there are some holdouts. That means you HAVE to join their association to get on their MLS. And that gets very expensive.

In a way, RPR kinda looks like a national MLS. They don't have much to do to make it more encompassing - in fact, a lot of information is curtailed.

Realtor.com!  That's basically one right?  Everyone puts their listings there.

 

I don't see there being one MLS (and one software to rule them all).  It's painful enough dealing with agents the next county over putting in bogus information into the listings.
