As you may be aware, the Minnesota Association of Realtors recently updated its Forms Use Policy. Because those forms are accessed through the Instanet link here in Matrix, we want to share this link to the full policy and a few highlights:

  • The MN State forms are for the exclusive use of Members. However, Members may allow their administrative staff (such as licensed and unlicensed assistants) access to provide authorized assistance related to their use.
  • The pre-printed text and format of the Forms may not be removed or modified in any way without removing the MNAR logo and copyright information from the Forms, except Members may place their brokerage logo in the upper left corner of the MNAR approved forms and may utilize a “footer” at the bottom of the Forms to place non-contractual disclosures.
  • Members of the MNAR may utilize, reproduce and distribute the Forms solely for purposes of real estate transactions and/or education within their real estate brokerage practice. Members may not sell or distribute the Forms as a separate product or service.

If you have any questions regarding the Minnesota Realtors Forms Use Policy, contact the Minnesota State Association at or 952.935.8313 or 800.862.6097.

NorthstarMLS has changed its policy to keep listing supplements available in the MLS for a full year after a listing goes off market (it was previously set to 8 days). Also, we have restored all supplements for listings that went off market over the past year. We believe this will be more beneficial for appraisers an agents who need the supplements available for reference for a longer time.

By popular demand, we recently made a change to our Add/Edit system where all photo uploads automatically have the photo filename as the photo caption. Also by popular demand, we now have a way for you to quickly clear those automatic captions if you don't want them. After uploading your photos, click the "Select All" box, then the "Remove Captions" button. The animation below shows you exactly how (click it to open a larger version in a new browser window). You can also use the new button to remove captions on individual photos or a selected group of photos.

The NorthstarMLS Add/Edit system will be unavailable for about 30 minutes starting tonight at 9:00pm. We need the downtime to release several new enhancements, including:

  • Larger maximum file size for both photos and supplements (up to 20 MB each).
  • When uploading a photo to a listing, the photo file name will automatically populate as the photo caption.
  • When viewing a listing in Add/Edit, we will automatically hide the map so that you can more easily see the data. (You can still toggle the map pin icon to view it.)
  • If one of your Incomplete listings expires (or you accidentally delete an Incomplete or Withheld listing), our Help Desk will be able to quickly restore it for you.
