CRMLS is restricting Open House features

CRMLS is restricting the open house features in all MLS systems including: Matrix, Paragon, and Flex.

The information below was emailed to all CRMLS users Saturday, March 21:

During this time of rapid changes and uncertainty, CRMLS will stay at the forefront of providing you with up-to-date information that can affect your business. 

In light of Governor Newsom’s Executive Order and C.A.R.’s recommendations, CRMLS is in the process of removing open house options from all CRMLS systems. 

For detailed information of this order, please visit C.A.R.’s article Stay At Home Guidelines. It is imperative in the interest of public health that agents and brokers abide by these new restrictions.

Thank you,

California Regional MLS
