HAR to Offer New MLS Platinum Package

During the past two decades, HAR has carefully tracked developments in technology, consumer experiences, agent productivity and broker profitability. Based on this research, HAR developed an extraordinary package of products and services to make our members successful. HAR is nationally recognized for its commitment to provide its members with the most innovative and productive tools in the industry. This effort continues today, and we remain committed to providing leading edge tools into the future.

Since 1997, all tools developed by HAR have been incorporated into a single MLS package without raising MLS fees.

Agent Dues/Fee changes since 1997
HAR (-5%)
TAR +74%
NAR +142%

National industry politics and federal law have resulted in NAR policy changes that require local MLSs to unbundle MLS services and make advertising related products optional. Effective July 1, 2016, HAR will comply with these new NAR policies by providing an additional package of services.

All MLS Subscribers will continue to receive those services defined by NAR as “substantially related to the function of a MLS” in a MLS Standard package.

A new MLS Platinum (optional) package of services has been developed by HAR designed to drive leads to your business and maximize your marketing exposure.

MLS Platinum:

Subscribers who choose to take advantage of the lead generation (Lead-Connect, Property Hotline, Facebook App, MarketInsight), agent promotion (Agent Website with IDX/VOW, Client Experience Ratings, Agent Branded app), and listing promotion (HomeSite, Automatic Social Media Posting) services may subscribe to the additional MLS Platinum package at a cost of $129/year.

To purchase services comparable to these from third parties would cost more than $1,800 per year, so you still receive a great value.
