What are the Internet Fields?

The way that a listing can be syndicated to many sites starts with the data entered in Paragon. There are four fields that dictate what will happen to a listing once it has been added to Paragon. They are:
- Internet Include
- Internet Address Display
- Display Comments
- Display AVM
Internet Include: Indicates if the listing will go to the internet (to sites OTHER than Paragon) This is Listing Syndication, brokers determine which sites their listings will appear on.
Internet Address Display: Indicates if the property address will be displayed on the internet when the listing is syndicated to other sites.
Display Comments: Indicates if when the listing is syndicated to a site where the consumer logs into an agent or broker site, that comments can be shared between the consumer and the agent/ broker providing the site.
Display AVM: An AVM is an automated valuation model. This indicates if when the listing is syndicated to a site where the consumer logs into an agent or broker site, that the agent / broker site can use this listing in an AVM (like a CMA).
Some sites that syndicate listings will not display listings that mark no to any or all of these fields. For example; Zillow will not display listings that don't allow AVMs.
