Days on Market: Rule change to temporarily stop DOM count
If you placed your listing in a “Temporarily Withdrawn (WT)” status on or after Monday, March 9, 2020 (where the listing contract is still valid, but the property is not being actively marketed) so it does not accrue Days on MLS (DMLS), we will allow you to email us a request to have that listing marked as “New” once the listing has been changed back to any Active status. Please note that the “New” status will not change, or zero-out, or “reset” DMLS. Using “Temporarily Withdrawn (WT)” will stop DMLS from incrementing. However, the expiration date of your listing will still prompt the MLS system to automatically change the status of your listing to “Expired”. Also, please be aware that placing a listing on “Temporarily Withdrawn (WT)” will not stop all third-party sites–such as Zillow, Redfin, etc.–from incrementing their days count on listings that they have already received, as many these sites and portals calculate “days on site” according to their own systems. We have no control over that.
We will allow agents to temporarily add comments to their “Public Remark” fields with branded or unbranded links to Virtual Tour/Virtual Walk-through products, as such measures will help limit exposure for both agents and clients.
Once the alarm has passed, we reserve the right to go back through the historical data and remove these links. Some third-party sites may strip out links from “Public Remarks”, and again, we have no control over that. Consider also making sure to use the standard practice of using the Virtual Media links.
