We’re sending out a quick reminder that your mantra should be ‘2 Business Days’. What do we mean by that? Well, just this:
- You’ve just gotten that new listing! Within 2 business days of seller’s signature you must enter the listing into the MLS and send your listing paperwork into the Board Office for verification. Paperwork can be email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or faxed to 413-448-2852.
- You’re listing expired but the seller authorized an extension of the list date. Because its already expired in the MLS, you can not extend under the same MLS#. You are able to do a full copy of your expired listing, and create a new MLS#. (Under the Add/Change menu option.) A new MLS#…send your paperwork to the Board Office for verification within 2-business days. If the listing expired within the last 30-days you can use a modification to the Exclusive Right to Sell Contract, and use the original listing date for continuity of Days on Market. If the listing expired more than 30-days ago you will need to obtain a new Exclusive Right to Sell contract and can begin the Days on Market effective the seller’s signature date.
- Status change… Under Agreement, Pending, Etc. Please make the appropriate changes to the database within 2 business days of the executed Purchase and Sale Agreement. This post will explain the difference between Under Agreement and Pending.
- Sold…Congratulations!! Please report it within 2 business days of the closing.
If you have any questions about the appropriate procedure please don’t hesitate to contact the office by phone at 413-442-8049 or email the staff.
