Coming Soon Has Landed

Coming Soon Has LandedComing Soon Listings                                        

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¬ģ.

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¬ģ. ¬†Coming Soon listings do not syndicate to other listing sites until they convert to Active.

  • Coming Soon listings are included in Inventory Reports and My Listings. ¬†It is visually represented with the color purple and abbreviated to CS.

Coming Soon and Listing Search

  • Coming Soon listings only apply to IRES MLS at this time. ¬†We do not capture Coming Soon listings for data share. ¬†¬†¬†This is available any place the Basic Criteria tab appears for a search (Listing Search, Prospects, Hotsheets, Inventory, and Stats-Custom).

Coming Soon and Listing Details

  • Open houses will only show on or after the Go Active Date.

Coming Soon and Prospects

  • Coming Soon listings are eligible to go directly to Active, Pending, Sold, or Withdrawn statuses. ¬†NOTE: ¬†Listings cannot revert back to a Coming Soon status. ¬†Use caution when withdrawing or manually activating Coming Soon listings. ¬†They cannot be Coming Soon again with the same office and same agent for 30 days.

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?
