MLS Disables Open House/Broker Tour Functionality
In accordance with the Contra Costa County Shelter in Place order and in the best interest of members, clients and the community, CCAR, Bay East Association and bridgeMLSs have temporarily shut down member’s ability to schedule, promote and access open houses and broker tours, effective immediately. We will continue to keep you updated as news becomes available.
The Contra Costa County Shelter in Place Order is a mandatory Legal Order issued under the authority of California law. Violation of or failure to comply with this Order is a misdemeanor punishable by fine, imprisonment, or both. (California Health and Safety Code § 120295, et seq.)
Alternative Tools to Replace Open Houses
There are a number of software options available to conduct “virtual showings” that can be combined with mobile video chat applications:
- Facebook: The simplest way is to use the camera app on your mobile phone, or social media solutions like Facebook Messenger and Facebook Live.
- Homesnap Pro: Users of this application can create video stories for free, attach them to their Homesnap listings and promote via social media channels. Visit: https://blog.homesnap.com/introducing-homesnap-stories/
