CCAR MLS Rule 12.5.1 | Public Remarks Restrictions & Requirements
When inputting public remarks in your listings, remember that information placed in that area should only related to the marketing, description and condition of the property. You should also be aware of the following:
General Rule: No other information may be provided in the Public Remarks section that goes beyond the description of a property.
No Contact Information
No contact information is permitted, including names, phone or fax numbers, email addresses or website addresses (including virtual tours and transaction tracking URLs).
No Showing Instructions
No showing instructions are permitted, including references to lockbox, alarm, gate or other security codes, or the vacancy of the property. However, a statement that the property will be delivered vacant is not a violation, nor are open house dates and times.
No Compensation Information
No information directed toward real estate agents or brokers, including compensation or bonuses offered to cooperating brokers may be shown in public remarks.
