Homesnap for Consumers!

We are proud to announce that the consumer version of Homesnap, Powered by the Broker Public Portal, is now available to buyers and sellers who are now going to national real estate portals. 

The Broker Public Portal (BPP) initiative grew out of a movement among brokers across the country to develop an industry-controlled real estate search experience for consumers. The idea was to leverage the relationship between brokers and their agents with the MLS where they list and sell property so that agents could deliver the highest quality listing information directly to buyers and sellers.

NorthstarMLS was at the forefront of this national collaboration between brokers and MLS’s.

Homesnap is the business and technology partner chosen by the Broker Public Portal Board of Managers to realize its goal of providing agents with an alternative to the big portals. It is a Mobile-first solution that has already achieved extraordinary adoption on a national basis both by agents who can engage with their clients and prospects using Homesnap Pro and directly by consumers who have made Homesnap the #1 rated real estate app in the App store.

The BPP's choice of Homesnap as its public-facing partner has been a resounding success, with over 100 MLSs representing over 800,000 agents now displaying their listings. The BPP's goal of a national footprint has become a reality.

You won’t find any advertising on the app, nor will you be sold premium placement or zip codes. This is a “your listing – your lead” service that is provided to you as a benefit from your MLS. Buyers and sellers will see all the homes for sale from every real estate company in our markets updated at the same frequency as IDX and with the same levels of quality and accuracy that are the hallmarks of MLS.

We believe that Homesnap, Powered by Broker Public Portal, will be especially appreciated by consumers for its superior content and direct connection to you, the real estate professional best able to help them with their buying and selling needs.

What People are Saying

  • The BPP with Homesnap consolidates the local efforts of 125 MLS into one system to attract consumers back to the real estate professionals and brokers.
  • We have created an experience that makes the consumer feel important and special, rather than feel like a lead.
  • Homesnap is agent centric and consumer driven.
  • BPP matters because it creates a competitive balance and positive industry change.
  • Homesnap delivers accurate data, ad-free search experience, and direct access to the listing agent that knows the property best
  • What consumer home search was supposed to be
  • A quiet, safe place to look for homes
  • Home search powered by Main Street, not Wall Street
  • I prefer to search on an app provided by people that sell homes rather than by a media company that sells me.
