TIPS FROM THE MLS:A Few Safety Tips to Consider for Realtors and Consumers You're Working With
Seller and showings:
Talk with your Sellers -- are there precautions they want put in place?If a Seller requests restrictions on showings or requests no showings for a period of time, the MLS requires you to disclose that info in Public Remarks. However, during the public health crisis, MLS will allow these exceptions without an amendment attached to a listing in MLS if the seller is restricting showings due to social distancing under COVID-19 guidelines. This temporary change does not mean you don't need seller authorization.Examples of what should be in Public Remarks: The dates showings are not allowed, or the times and days showings are allowed.
