In a busy housing market, it’s important to remember the steps for practicing advertising integrity. Advertising integrity is not only important, it’s the law and MLS policy.
Below is a friendly reminder of the five steps to take for reporting a listing:
#1. Search the property on the MLS. Be sure to search Active, Delayed and Withdrawn statuses on Flexmls.
#2. Take a picture or screenshot of the advertisement or marketing.
#3. Wait 48 hours. This is the timeframe allotted to enter a listing into the MLS. Some properties could have active listing agreements that have not been entered yet.
#4. Search the property on the MLS, again. Be sure to search Active, Delayed and Withdrawn statuses on Flexmls.
#5. Report it. Report the advertising integrity violation by emailing the photos of the marketing or advertising and any additional information you have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
