Listing Sheets...and the Listing Service
Almost 50 years ago, in 1963, this was the typical listing sheet, printed and distributed weekly by the Board. How things have changed! We have certainly grown with the changes and information is at our fingertips whether we are in front of a computer, on our cell phones, tablets etc.
"For nearly a century, MIBOR had often been progressive in its initiatives to help support and enhance the real estate industry. By January 2002, the Board newsletter, MIBOR InDepth, announced yet another important advancement in the industry: the expanded capabilities of the Internet-based MLS system, a process that the newsletter claimed would '...take the real estate professional to the next level.' MLS books, which were bulky and quickly outdated, were replaced with computer listing software in the 1980s, which linked each broker's individual terminals to a master, web-based source that could be accessed quickly, easily and more accurately. Over the years MIBOR enhanced the technology offerings in order to help REALTORS® facilitate a transaction that was as efficient as possible." -- excerpt from REALTORS®: Opening Doors for 100 Years.
