When entering a listing, users should put the true listing date in the MLS as the list date, and then indicate which date the property should be available as On-Market. The On-Market Date represents the date that the listing will be available on the MLS for listing searches. Prior to this date, the listing will only display to the listing owner(s). The On-Market Date can be updated at any time prior to the property going On-Market.
This new feature will allow listing owners to upload photos and add open houses and tours in advance of the property being made available for other users to see. Also, system reports have been updated to reflect both the List Date and the On-Market Date. Days on Market (DOM) will be calculated using the new On-Market Date.
