A Multiple Listing Service is a means by which authorized Participants make blanket unilateral offers of

compensation to other Participants (acting as subagents, buyer agents, or in other agency or non-agency

capacities defined by law); by which cooperation among Participants is enhanced, by which information is

accumulated and disseminated to enable authorized Participants to prepare appraisals, analyses, and other

valuations of real property for bona fide clients and customers; by which Participants engaging in real estate

appraisal contribute to common databases, and is a facility for the orderly correlation and dissemination of

listing information so Participants may better serve their clients and the public. Entitlement to compensation

is determined by the cooperating broker’s performance as procuring cause of the sale (or lease).
