According to a Charles Schwab study of 1,000 people the answer is $2.4 million.

REALTORS: Do you want MLS organizations to consolidate even faster?

MLSs are consolidating in the U.S. at an average of three per month, shrinking the pool from 825 to 719 (Jan 2014 - Oct 2016). Is this fast enough? At this rate it will take 15 - 20 years before we are down to a handful of large regional service providers.

How would that then look like? No-one knows but we thought we would explore how this hypothetical future of MLS consolidation might look. We dedicated a whole chapter in the 2017 edition of the Swanepoel Trends Report to this topic and in the end came up with the below proposed chart. (RealSure Publishing: 200-page report released Feb 1, 2017 www.retrends.com)

MLS organizations were created to serve brokers and agents. So, Realtors what do you think... should more MLSs consolidate and should they do it faster?
