Regretfully, we must inform you that due to the standing decision of the Down River Association of REALTORS® to end data sharing with Realcomp (by deciding to deny data share access to certain members), your access to DRAR may be suspended.
The intent of our data sharing arrangement with DRAR was understood clearly by both MLS organizations - to make data sharing available to our respective members in good standing. DRAR’s decision to deny access to certain offices/members unequivocally breaches that agreement.
We understand the suspension of these services may represent an inconvenience for you. Our hope is that it has no impact on your ability to continue successfully serving your customers and clients.
New offices from the Down River market area are joining Realcomp every day. We continue to process listings from these offices for your access as quickly as possible.
We continue to be committed to the success of our REALTOR® Subscribers and putting the best interests of our members and industry first.

Why only certain members. Can anyone answer why only certain members will be axed.

I think it was not just certain members but that the desire to axe certain members caused a complete schizm. I think this went out to everyone with data sharing...I think.

Sounds like there is a mass exodus to Realcomp at this time...according to Realcomp.

Time will tell. Stay tuned.

Seeing as I can barely afford the MLS dues I have now...this really sucks.

This comes with no waring at all. I find that the most frustrating. I wonder if a call to the DRAR would garner an extension of usage for the remainder of the week.

This was no different then when Realmatrix(mirealsource) cut off realcomp subscribers. One day it worked, next day I was paying $400 in set up fees and then $91 a month from then on. Problem is you cannot get away with not having DRAR if you do anything south of Detroit. They have easily 40-60% more sold data in the same areas as Realcomp.

Well that just sucks.

As I understand this, Realcomp, who just spent a ton of cash in the courts, needs to stay clean with allowing service to all members, not just those Realtors providing "Full Service" to their clients. They had been trying to block limited service companies full access and privileges to the system. This may be a CYA to show they are now on the side of good.

OR.... This is a Realcomp power play. Trying to squash the smaller MLS providers in the market. :shrug::shrug:
