Rules Roundup: Sharing MLS Access
Rules Roundup – Sharing MLS Login Information
It might seem like a kind gesture or that you’re just being “Minnesota nice,” but sharing your MLS login credentials could result in a fine up to $5,000. Don’t share your MLS access with your friends, clients, vendors, neighbors, the public, other Subscribers or even your spouse / significant other.
Watch this example of an agent being asked by a company for a NorthstarMLS login. Based on an actual recent incident!
Here are the NorthstarMLS rules in place for sharing MLS access:
- Do not share NorthstarMLS access: Only authorized agents, appraisers and office staff may access the system. Do not share your access information under any circumstances with anyone, including colleagues, customers, non-member agents, assistants, friends or family. Be on guard for moving companies and other third parties that may attempt to strike a deal with you to share your access (if so, please inform NorthstarMLS).
- UNAUTHORIZED DISSEMINATION OF SYSTEM ACCESS INFORMATION There shall be a maximum fine of $5,000 for unauthorized dissemination of system access information.
