Alerts for Temporarily Withdrawn and Public Remarks Fields
If you placed a listing in a “Temporarily Withdrawn (WT) status on/after Mon, Mar 9 (where the listing contract remains valid, but the property is not being actively marketed) so it does not accrue Days on MLS (DMLS), email CCAR a request to mark the listing “NEW” once the listing has been changed back to any Active status. Please note that the “New” status will not change, zero-out or “reset” DMLS. Using WT will stop DMLS from incrementing. Additionally, please be aware that placing a listing on WT will not stop all third-party sites such as Zillow, Redfin, etc., from incrementing their days count on listings already received, as many of these sites/portals calculate “days on site” according to their own systems. CCAR MLS has no control over those systems. For more information contact Member Services: [email protected] or 925.295.1270.
CCAR MLS participants and subscribers may temporarily add comments to “Public Remarks” fields with links to Virtual Tour/Virtual Walk-through products, as such measures will help limit exposure for both agents and clients.
Once the COVID-19 crisis has passed, CCAR reserves the right to review all historical data and remove these links. Some third-party sites may strip out links from “Public Remarks.” Unfortunately, CCAR MLS has no control over this. Please consider using the standard of practice Virtual Media links.
