Access to MLS?

Hello and happy Turkey day :slight_smile:

 Do any of the local Austin folks know if the Austin Board of Realtors allows associate or affiliate memberships to the MLS listings and a Supra key for lockboxes?  I'm trying to decide whether or not it's worthwile to get a license just for this access.  The informational pages on the ABOR website mentions associate memberships a couple times but it doesn't say much about it.  I don't plan on listing any properties myself but would like to be able to do a little research on my own.  I would definately be willing to pay a small commission if this were the case but I don't want to get any licensees in trouble.
