MLS Rule Changes

Year Built
Are you listing a home that was rebuilt or remodeled? If so, the remodel can be described in either public or agent remarks, but the year built field must match the tax record. The Year Built may be updated only if the County does so in the tax records. Making sure MLS is consistent with the tax record will avoid conflicts with local code that defines when a home is considered new.

Guest Homes Included in FSF?
Some properties have a guest home or guest cottage/cabin. The finished square footage field must not include finished areas in a second building. The FSF for the guest home or guest cottage/cabin should be described in the remarks or supplements.

Accepted Purchase Agreements Must Also be Disclosed in TNAS Status
A contingency on an accepted purchase agreement must be disclosed in the contingency field not only in Active status, but also TNAS status.

If you have any questions about NorthstarMLS rules, contact the rules department at 651-251-3210.

Rules Roundup – Are You Putting the Correct Status Updates on Your Listings?

Inaccurate listing statuses and untimely listing updates in the NorthstarMLS database continues to be one of the most common complaints to our Rules and Regs Department. In fact, in 2015 there were over 850 violations for incorrect statuses or contingencies. It has an adverse effect on your sellers, buyers and the entire NorthstarMLS community who rely heavily on this information to be reliable and accurate.

Below are a few examples of situations where you should change the status of a listing.

Temporarily Not Available For Showing (TNAS) status is appropriate anytime the property cannot be shown, including:

  • The seller has ACCEPTED an offer and doesn’t want to show during the inspection period.
  • The seller RECEIVED multiple offers and is not showing until they have worked through the offers.
  • The seller is going out of town for two weeks and doesn’t want to show the property during that time.

The status can remain active WITH a disclosed contingency in the contingency field when:

  • The seller has accepted an offer and is willing to show during the contingency.

Thanks to Sarah Marrinan of Keller Williams Premier Realty (Vadnais Heights) for her Rules Roundup topic on TNAS and statuses. She will be receiving a $30 Caribou Coffee gift card for submitting her idea.
