The expanded MLS data share launched today, Jan. 20, 2021, involving seven MLSs and counties from Mendocino and Placer down to Monterey. When you log into Paragon, you may now search and enter your ‘out of area’ listings directly in Paragon. No need to access BAREIS, MetroList, SFAR and MLSListings as all of the listing information is now available within Paragon.
If you have an active listing entered into BAREIS, Metrolist or San Francisco which was not canceled and reentered into Paragon, please email email@example.com with your updates as you will no longer have direct access to that listing.
Need help importing contacts or recreating your searches? Tech support is available at 925.730.7100. Read more about the NORCAL MLS Alliance project here.

The California Association of REALTORS® has issued a Red Alert opposing SB 329. This bill will force rental property owners to accept Section 8 vouchers.
C.A.R. opposes SB 329 because some rental property owners may not want to be forced to deal with the regulations, inspections, and bureaucracy associated with some aspects of the Section 8 program.
If SB 329 is defeated, property owners may still accept Section 8 vouchers if they choose to do so.
For more information or to respond to the Red Alert, click here.
