In November 2019, the National Association of REALTORS created a new policy called the Clear Cooperation Policy. MIBOR began an education campaign and launched the policy in April 2020.
The intent of the Clear Cooperation Policy is to solidify the primary purpose of a listing service, which is to foster cooperation among brokers. The policy is to promote fair housing by ensuring consumers have equal access to all available properties for a transparent process.
The policy states,
At MIBOR, we EMPOWER our MEMBERS and STRENGTHEN the MARKETPLACE. To do that we embrace anything that reinforces the consumer benefits of cooperation and ensures the MIBOR Broker Listing Cooperative is an efficient and transparent marketplace that is pro-competitive and pro-consumer.
