Residential agents who use Google Maps on their websites and to bolster their listings are bracin爱上海龙凤419桑拿 上海龙凤论坛sh1fg for an unprecedented price increase to the service.

The Google Maps application programming interface, or API, allows agents and brokers to embed maps into listings on their sites, which gives interested buyers a view of the surrounding neighborhoods. Now, Google says it will impose a 1400 percent price hike for the embedding servic上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛e, according to GeoAwesomeness, a geospatial technology blog.

Users were previously given 25,000 free hits to pages featuring the map爱上海同城论坛 爱上海同城s serv爱上海同城 爱上海ice per day, but will now be forced to pay $200 per 28,000 page views a month. The API will be unusable without attached credit card information.

While Google said it would offer the first month free, the imposed fee could force firms to lean on alternatives, including maps services provided by Bing, Apple Maps or OpenStreetMap.

Morgan Carey, chief executive of Real Estate Webmasters, a company that makes websites for real estate firms, said that for one of his clients with over 1,000 agents, the price hike could impose a $5,600 fee.

Compass CEO Robert Reffkin

Amid broker backlash, Compass is pulling the plug on its first licensing deal上海贵族宝贝交流区 上海贵族宝贝论坛 with a Massachusetts brokerage that was paying to use its technology.

The decision to end the short-l上海贵族宝贝 上海千花网龙凤论坛ived agreement with the firm, Leading Edge Real Estate, was made after Compass agents became worried the firm was giving away its technology. Leading Edge managers informed agents of the decision earlier this week in an email, Inman reported.

Compass announced the Powered by Compass initiative last week, the latest stage of its ambitious expansion plan that so far has included aggressive hiring and acquisitions. The deal gave Leading Edge, a 200-ag阿爱上海同城 阿拉爱上海同城ent firm with offices in and around Boston, access to Compass marketing, data and analytics tools.

The deal s collapse calls into question the future of Powered by Compass, which is part of the firm s ambitious expansion plan. Compass is valued at $2.2 billion after a $450 million investment by SoftBank s Vision Fund in December.

In a statement on Friday, Compass confirmed the deal was off. Compass has decided to terminate our agreement with Leading Edge, the firm said in a statement. However, since the Powered by Compass announcement we have received interest from over 30 brokerages where there s no geographic overlap with our current offices.

Concierge Auctions, the market leader in luxury real estate auctions, has faced accusations that it manipulates bids to juice up its business.

Since 2014, the company has been a defendant in 10 lawsuits, half of which accused Concierge of using some type of fake bidder to increase the price of homes or to make sellers think there was more interest in their properties than there really was, according to a review of suits on Courthouse News by the Wall Street Journal.

In one suit, Joanne Brown accused the company of not telling her about the two lowest bids for her apartment in Telluride, Colo., which were around $2 million and $3 million. This gave her a false impression of how much the property would sell for—executives advised her that it could go for between $10 million and $14 million, but the winning bid was for about $7 million (Brown later paid to settle the case, and the suit was dismissed). Half of the lawsuits filed against Concierge accuse the firm of not disclosing registered bidders who had proffered lowball bids or using some type of shill bidder to convince clients to work with them.

Concierge denied all the lawsuits’ allegations, saying many were dismissed, and added that four of the suits led to pay爱上海 爱上海同城手机版ments to Concierge. Four lawsuits are still ongoing.
