Coming Soon allows listing agents to take up to 21 days to stage properties, take interior photos, prepare them for showings, and so on, without Days on Market accruing.
Within one (1) business day of any public marketing of the property, the Listing Broker must ensure the listing is in Active or Coming Soon status.
How is Coming Soon similar to Active?
- MLS rules allow marketing in both statuses, so long as advertisements clearly mark Coming Soon listings as Coming Soon.
- The listing agent offers a commission on both Coming Soon and Active listings.
How is Coming Soon unique?
- Coming Soon listings will not go out from the MLS to portals like Realtor.com, and Homes.com.
- MLS rules prohibit showings of any kind, including showings by the listing broker.
- Because of these limitations, Days on Market do not count in Coming Soon.
You must obtain a seller-signed copy of a CRMLS Coming Soon Form before using the Coming Soon status. However, you do not need to provide the form to CRMLS unless Compliance requests it.
You can find the CRMLS Coming Soon Form at CRMLS.org > Compliance, or by clicking here.
