Martha's Vineyard MLS Coming Soon Status

Coming Soon - No Showings Status

In conjunction with the Clear Cooperation Rule, MVMLS has updated the Coming Soon-No Showings status.

Here are some key things to note:

Entering a Listing: In order to enter a Coming Soon listing into MVMLS, you must enter a completed listing, meaning all required fields must be filled out, a fully-executed listing agreement must be uploaded, and abide by the MVMLS Photo Policy.

Listing Date: The date that you want your listing to start as a Coming Soon listing

Active Listing Date: The date you will start showing your listing. On this date, the listing will automatically become Active

The maximum a Coming Soon listing can remain in the Coming Soon-No Showings status is 21 days.

Properties in this status may not be shown, this includes any virtual or live showings:
Properties will automatically go Active on their Active Listing Date; however, agents may manually make their listings Active prior to the Active Listing Date.

Listings will be disseminated to IDX, publisher, and Portal sites while in this status; however, sites may not necessarily display these listings while in this status.

The calculation for DOM/CDOM will not be calculated, so agents do not have to worry about the accrual of DOM/CDOM during the use of the Coming Soon-No Showings status. You may not enter a listing as Coming Soon-No Showings after it has been Active.

Coming Soon FAQs

The Coming Soon - No Showings status will be disseminated to IDX and publisher sites. Please note that some of the sites listed in the broker distribution do not display Coming Soon listings, though they are provided to each.

The Coming Soon - No Showings status means no in-person or virtual showings. Virtual showings are live, interactive showings from the subject property, not a pre-recorded video. A pre-recorded video or virtual tour is allowed to promote the property. The ‘Coming Soon - No Showing’ status does require one (1) primary photo and should adhere to MVMLS’s photo policy, however, you may add up to the allotted 100 photos if you wish.

A Coming Soon - No Showings will need to have a executed, exclusive listing agreement and if a seller decides to cancel the terms of that listing agreement, then the listing can be canceled in the MLS by uploading written authorization from the seller and then the responsible broker can cancel the listing or request the MLS to cancel the listing for them.

A ‘Coming Soon - No Showings' listing is viewable to all participants, subscribers, and administrative assistants of MVMLS. These listings can be emailed or a link may be sent by a member of MVMLS to prospective buyers. A listing agent may publicly market a Coming Soon listing

This is actually the complete opposite of a pocket listing. All other members of MVMLS will see the coming soon listings and provide equal footing for everyone to know the listing is coming. Neither the listing agent nor any other agent may show the property in this status.

Yes,’ Coming Soon - No Showings’ listings will be a completed listing in the MLS, meaning all required fields will need to be entered.

Prior to a Coming Soon listing becoming Active, you may edit the listing to add additional media and data about the subject listing.
