Placester is a proud partner of multiple brands and franchises, including RE/MAX INTEGRA and the National Association of REALTORS®. We understand that many agents are members of both INTEGRA and NAR. Since we have independent partnerships in place with each organization, the benefits of each membership cannot be combined. This article will describe the differences between the two separate subscription types you have access to through each brand.
Note: A RE/MAX INTEGRA Edition site will be created for you automatically when you join INTEGRA. You can access this site through Launchpad.
NAR Edition sites are not created automatically and are something you can opt into on your own by creating a second Placester account at Placester.com/NAR under a separate email address. You will access this site by logging into Placester.com.
NAR Edition vs. RE/MAX INTEGRA Edition
*Placester’s IDX solution is included in the NAR edition subscription. That being said, we must pass along a data surcharge for some MLSs. For this reason, we require credit card information to be submitted when you add the free NAR edition subscription.
In the event your MLS charges Placester for data access, you will incur a data surcharge which will be billed by Placester. This surcharge is intended to offset the high fees that certain MLSs charge Placester for access to the IDX data. The surcharge is processed on the day that your integration is completed, then is charged monthly. Keep in mind, some MLSs charge their own setup or annual fees for access to IDX data. You will be billed directly from your MLS for any direct MLS Fees.
**Most surcharges were waived for RE/MAX INTEGRA agents using Placester. For a small number of MLSs, monthly surcharges could not be waived and do apply. Please contact Placester Support if any clarification is needed.
Many agents choose to use a Placester site not only as an IDX search solution for their clients, but also as a tool to capture and nurture leads. Placester has other subscription offerings that will give you access to additional front end features and site editing options along with a backend suite of lead management tools. You can learn more about your upgrade options for each subscription type by calling our sales team at 800.728.8391.
