NorthstarMLS has extended the maximum allowable time in Coming Soon Status from 21 days to 60 days.
This is an extraordinary measure during extraordinary times that we hope will not be necessary for long; however, we will consider further extension of the number of days permitted while in Coming Soon as circumstances may dictate.
The rule of no showings allowed while in Coming Soon status has not changed—only the amount of time you may leave a listing in that status. If you want to accept showing appointments, the listing still must be in Active status by the time of the first showing.
All listings currently in Coming Soon status will retain the current Availability Date you set when you entered the listing. You may go in and edit that date if you would like to take advantage of this extension.
Please note: For your existing Coming Soon listings, if you choose to take advantage of the extension, be sure to notify the showing agents (for any already approved showings during that period) that those showings are canceled.
Also, a reminder that earlier this week, we temporarily waived the requirement to allow showings for Active status listings as long as you disclose it in Public Remarks.
We hope you are all staying safe and healthy. NorthstarMLS is operating business as usual to support you and your clients.
