What’s collab.torontomls.net, when did it appear and who made it?
Collaborate is a tool created by the Toronto Real Estate Board that allows buyers to access listings in real time, unlike www.realtor.ca which is always delayed by a day.
It allows buyers to set up their own searches, be notified of new listings according to their parameters, and use tools not available on any other website.
There’s no way to search sold data, of course. That’s the big battle right now between TREB and the Competition Bureau, and I’ve been asked a dozen times if people can use Collaborate to search properties both available and sold.
