With the shift in market behaviors the MLS of Southern Arizona has received requests for guidance surrounding virtual showings and the need for clarification for the recording of video and images during showings. Recently the MLSSAZ Rules and Regulations Section 2.11 Showing Instructions was revised to support current market trends and reinforce cooperation in the MLS marketplace.
MLSSAZ Rules & Regulations Section 2.11 - Showing Instructions: “Listing brokers shall provide showing procedures, instructions and restrictions within Showing Instruction field in the MLS. Participants and Subscribers shall strictly adhere to the instructions as specified by the listing broker. Participants and Subscribers may communicate with the listing broker to discuss and agree upon showing methods other than what has been entered for the listing. Failure of any Participant or Subscriber to follow Showing Instructions or agreed showing method on an MLS listing may be subject to a fine. (Added 01/2019)
Cooperating brokers and buyers must respect limitations the seller imposes on the making of photos or videos during showings and on the distribution of any resulting photos or videos. Listing brokers must indicate any limitations of this kind in the Showing Instruction Field of MLS before any showing for the limitation to be effective for that showing. (Added 03/2020)”
Given the current climate MLSSAZ recommends revisiting the listing Showing Instructions with your sellers. The Showing Instructions is a critical field where sellers express their expectations, limitations, and trust their instructions will be adhered to without exception, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing. MLSSAZ support is available to help with any questions.
