Two new listings, one at $1,449,000 in Pima Canyon, another in the Canyons at $2,750,000. And a contract for a house in Foothills ll listed at $1,045,000 (the 6th $1,000,000+ contract this year)
And this may seem absurd. But because of the newly published Data Distribution Guide rules from the Tucson Association of Realtors®/Multiple Listing Service I’m afraid that I can’t list the addresses of those homes, lest I be found guilty of advertising homes that are not my listings. But if you don’t mind jumping through a hoop or two, you can find them easily enough.
Just click to the Search by Subdivision page of my web site and then click on each of the subdivision names.
Hopefully, this is a temporary workaround until I figure out a better way to do this while still being in compliance with the new restrictions. I welcome your suggestions.
A quick peek at the gist of the new guidelines;
The Tucson Association of Realtors®/Multiple Listing Service has published it’s new Data Distribution Resource Guide which now prohibits the “mass distribution” (their words) of many forms of MLS data.
As stated in the Data Distribution Resource Guide;
“Distribution of MLS content to the masses is extremely narrow in scope and not permissible in most instances”.
The definition of the masses is large groups of unassociated individuals with no established broker client relationship who are not ready, willing, and able to purchase properties.
In general, the masses are:

And that’s you, the masses, the readers of this blog. So my hands are tied and, unfortunately, from here on in, you can expect much less information from this blog and from other Tucson area real estate blogs.
The irony is that Zillow, Trulia and gazillions of other websites are exempt from these rules. They only apply to Realtors®, those of us who actually pay to be members of the TAR/MLS.
