What is a VOW and or what is PCS?
VOW stands for “Virtual Office Website”
A VOW is where the public can enter their contact information, get a password, describe property interest, and then conduct searches of all available Salt Spring Island MLS® listings.
Listing display rules are set by the CREA® Canadian Real Estate Association.
Once a visitor becomes a bona fide customer / client they can enter a VOW site.
Here is a screen shot of the map in mobile version of VOW
A VOW website is a business site whereas an Reciprocity (IDX ) site is an advertising site.
A VOW real estate site allows Scott to give his site visitors / clients more powerful access to MLS data in exchange for their contact information and agreement to become a bona fide customer. Note; being a bona fide customer does not tie you into using Scott as your Salt Spring Realtor.
Scott offers two different VOW systems one is the PCS (private client Services) and the new VOW system provided by myRealPages if you are using your phone and or tablet this is the system for you. Sign into Scott’s advanced MLS VOW system.
The two systems are free to use and there are no strings attached.
