A new year is bringing change to RAHB’s MLS®. RAHB is excited to be the first real estate board in Canada to include BrokerBay in its suite of offerings included in your MLS® monthly fees. BrokerBay is already being used by more than 75 per cent of RAHB members at their own expense.
As a result of adding this unique and highly popular enhancement to RAHB’s suite of MLS® services, ShowingTime will be discontinued as a core MLS® offering as of February 5, 2021. Those members who wish to continue using ShowingTime as their front desk appointment booking system should contact Donna Ruffer Zamarro at 1-888-224-2275. (NB: if you subscribe directly to the ShowingTime platform, you will still be able to access it through Matrix.)
The MLS® monthly service fee will increase to $44 + HST as of February 1 (the current fee is $38 + HST). This monthly fee includes:
- RAHB’s Multiple Listing Service (MLS®) through Matrix
- Unlimited Broker Load
While a 15 per cent increase in monthly fees may seem high, we ask you to remember that members were given a credit for their November and December 2020 Monthly MLS® Service Fees – a savings of $76, which more than covers the increase for 2021. In addition, members who are currently using and paying for BrokerBay over and above the MLS® Monthly Service Fee will reduce their costs, as well as the time and administration to utilize the service.
More details will be available in the coming weeks about what you need to do if you are already using BrokerBay or want to sign up for this new service.
