MRIS and other MLSs to add new-home listings

A number of multiple listing services across the country — including MRIS, which serves a large portion of Virginia — will be adding new construction and new-home communities to the listings accessible by members.

Builders Digital Experience — a joint venture between Realtor.com operator Move and homebuilder consortium Builder Homesite — says that 16 MLSs will feature new-home communities as well as floorplans in a “new home channel.” BDX already powers Realtor.com’s “New Homes & Communities” section.

The new information will be a customized version of what’s available on BDX’s NewHomeSourceProfessional.com, which bills itself as having “the largest collection of new homes” searchable by real estate agents.

According to BDX, more than 63 percent of new homes are sold by agents, and 54 percent of home shoppers consider new construction when they start their home search.
