In November 2019 NAR approved MLS Policy 8.0 – Clear Cooperation.  IRES MLS implemented this policy with a new Coming Soon status.  This status, used when creating a listing, can be seen anywhere listings are displayed in, MySite, and®.

IRES MLS rules and regulations require a listing which is publicly marketed (as defined by NAR’s Policy 8.0) must be submitted to the MLS within 1 business day.  The listing can be added as either an Active listing or a Coming Soon listing.

When selecting Coming Soon as the status, the listing will auto-update to an Active status on a date specified known as the Go Active Date.  This date is any time within 7 calendar days of entering the listing into the system.

These listings are searchable inside the system as well as through Prospects & MySite, and on®.  Coming Soon listings do not syndicate to other listing sites until they convert to Active.  Update:  As of August 2021, Coming Soon listings are provided to both IDX providers and property syndicators.

One thought on “Coming Soon Has Landed

  1. Seems like this would be a great time to use the “coming soon” for any upcoming listing that you don’t want us to show in the next 7 days. Has CAR considered this?
