Private Listing Network

MRED's Private Listing Network is a separate database within connectMLS where you can place "mini drafts" of property info for listings you choose to share with other brokers BEFORE exposing them to the public.

  • A secure network to enter your "Coming Soon" listings, with an opportunity to pre-market them to your peers, in the spirit of cooperation and compensation.
  • Limited number of fields (both required and non-required)
  • Listings in the PLN do NOT appear in the search results in the standard MLS system
  • Listings in the PLN are NOT displayed publicly, i.e. are not included in IDX, VOW, or any feeds to third party aggregator websites, and cannot be emailed or included in prospect (auto-search) matches
  • And more!
