Membership Pays!

 

The Silver City Regional Multiple Listing Service is among the top reasons that it pays to be a member of the local REALTOR® Family.

Steps for Joining the Silver City Regional Multiple Listing Service

  • Membership in SCRMLS is granted to the Participant (NM Qualifying Broker-broker in charge as per the NMREC or NM Appraiser) and any Subscriber (NM Qualifying/Associate Broker or Appraiser) licensed under the Participant applying for membership. 

  • All affiliated brokers in the joining office that - do not - want to access/subscribe to SCRMLS must sign a SCRMLS waiver form. Brokers are only waived from access fees provided they are primary members in another MLS.

  • The Participant submits the SCRMLS membership application and one-time office application fee of $400.

  • All joining Participants and Subscribers must complete an online MLS orientation. Only upon completion of the orientation will members will have access to SCRMLS.

  • Quarterly SCRMLS access fees are billed January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1. Currently the Subscriber and Participant access fees are $180 + tax, per quarter. Fees are subject to change.  As well as any additional fees as designated by the MLS Board of Directors from time to time.

Multiple Listing Service Data

 

Integrity of data is the most precious commodity that any MLS has. Protection of the integrity of the data is a challenging task, but paramount to providing our members with the best and most accurate data in order to serve the day to day needs of the consumers that are your clients.

 

MLS Rules and Etiquette Reminder

 

While many of the following MLS rules and industry etiquette are familiar to most REALTORS®, they are the most frequently reported violations from Brokers utilizing the MLS system.  In order to maintain a system that is efficient and provides its users accurate and timely information, it is necessary to maintain and enforce rules in a fair and unbiased manner.  To review the full set of MLS Rules and Regulations, as well our Standards of Practice and Citation Policy look in the MLS Documents section of Paragon.

 

Public Remarks:
The “Public Remarks” field is intended only to describe the physical characteristics of the property and its grounds. Brokers may not enter contact information such as names, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, Web site addresses, video's, etc. The public remarks are to describe the property. Information related to the transaction such as available financing, seller concessions, bonuses or incentives are prohibited as well. Brokers must also be careful not to enter confidential information such as showing instructions or security codes since this field is displayed on showing handouts and members' public Web sites.  Brokers should utilize the “Broker Remarks” field for the above referenced types of information.

Appointments Required for All Property Showings:
Appointments for showings and negotiations shall be conducted through the listing Participant except where the listing participant gives the cooperating broker specific authority to contact the owner directly for showing. Please make sure your appointment has been scheduled and confirmed, it’s a difficult situation when a homeowner is surprised by strangers entering their house unexpectedly.

Property Showing Etiquette:
Review the Broker remarks and showing instructions prior to entering the home. This will ensure you don't let the pet out or wake up a homeowner that works nights. Remember to wipe off your feet, stay close to your clients, turn out the lights and lock the doors behind you. Do not leave a business card unless requested by the seller or listing participant. While these reminders may seem obvious and of common courtesy, MLS has received calls from angry homeowners that feel Brokers showing their home have been inconsiderate in regards to leaving the property as they found it.

Listing Agreements Required for All MLS Listings:
Before a listing can be entered in MLS, the listing participant must have a signed listing agreement with the seller giving the listing participant authorization to submit the listing to MLS. It is inappropriate to enter a FSBO listing where the listing participant has not entered into an agency agreement with the seller. It is also against MLS rules to enter a listing that has been sold outside the MLS where the listing participant did not have a signed listing agreement, with the seller, or written permission from the buyer and seller prior to closing.

Reporting Pending Sales:
Once a contract is signed, the listing should be placed under-contract within 48 business hours of the signed contract, even if both parties agree to allow the seller to continue showing the property. Properties that have a signed contract with a contingency and are available to show and taking back-up offers should be placed in under-contract backup or kickout status. While many sellers wish to keep the listing in “Active” status while taking back-up offers, it is important that we maintain consistent and accurate information so that agents are clear on the status of a particular listing.

Reporting Closed Sales:
All sales closed must be entered within 48 business hours of the actual closing/funding date. There are no exceptions to this rule, even if a buyer brings a contract with a provision indicating their desire to withhold the closing information from MLS. If the MLS is used to market the property, the listing participant is obligated to report the sale.  Withdrawing, terminating or reporting a listing as expired to avoid reporting the sales price and closing information is prohibited.
