Article 19.16: Co-mingling of Data

Section 16: Co-mingling of Data

Member Participant may co-mingle listings through IDX provided by MLS GRID with listings from other MLS sources on its IDX display, provided all such displays are consistent with these IDX Rules. Co-mingling is (a) the ability for a visitor to the website to execute a single search that searches any portion of MLS GRID Data for IDX display at the same time it searches listing data from any other source(s); or (b) the display on a single web page of any portion of MLS GRID Data for IDX display and listing data from any other source. Listings obtained from non-MLS GRID MLSs must display the source from which each such listing was obtained. Displays of minimum information (e.g. a one-line or ”thumbnail,” text messages, “tweets”, etc. of two hundred (200) characters or less) are exempt from this requirement but only when linked directly to a display that includes all required disclosures. Co-mingling of listings with properties not exclusively represented by a licensed real estate agent or broker is prohibited. (Updated 11/2020)
