Bright subscribers receive access to CoStar’s Homesnap Pro and Pro+ app services through an underlying contract between Homesnap and an entity called the Broker Public Portal (BPP). BPP was originally conceived to create a national consumer home search experience on behalf of the MLS industry. Subsequently, through the BPP, MLSs across the country entered into an agreement collectively to offer Homesnap to their subscribers. The agreement between the BPP and Homesnap will end this month (October 2022).

Because Bright offers our subscribers the Homesnap mobile app’s Pro and Pro+ services through the BPP agreement, that means Bright subscribers were at risk of losing access to Homesnap Pro and Pro+ in the Bright MLS market area.

So what’s next for Bright and Homesnap?

  • Bright has reached an agreement with Homesnap through the remainder of 2022. This ensures that you will have access to the Homesnap app services in Bright’s service areas through December 31, 2022.
  • Bright is actively engaged in discussions with the Homesnap team for a longer-term agreement beyond December 2022, if we can ensure that your data is protected and continues to be used to support your businesses.

Bright MLS understands that many subscribers utilize Homesnap as part of their business toolkit. Bright MLS will keep you informed about the progress every step of the way.
