As the weather and the season changes, members are encouraged to update their listing photos. Be sure to abide by the MLS Rules & Regulations for listing photos and virtual tours (Section 4.3 of the MLS Rules & Regulations).
MLS will soon be requiring larger-sized photos to use InnoVia's high-resolution gallery at its best. Listing photos should be at least 1024x768 (pixel size), in JPG format, and under 8 Mb in size. There is no need to downsize photos for the MLS - these guidelines will allow the majority of photos to be successfully uploaded. Review your listings and update your photos now.
The MLS Area field will disappear from the MLS early in 2016. This field will be removed from data sheets, listing maintenance input screens, RETS and data feeds for use on your websites and will no longer be searchable.
Among the monthly training sessions offered by RANW MLS is a class focused on Prospect Manager. Even long-time members can benefit from the in-depth training on properly entering and working with this helpful tool. For upcoming dates for Prospect Manager, as well as for our other instructor-led training sessions, be sure to check the Training Calendar.
Reminder to all members: If your listing is still active in the new year, MLS requires that the Net Taxes amount and Tax Year be updated to reflect the new year's tax information. Listing Maintenance offices can update their own listings; those members who do not use Listing Maintenance should submit a Status Sheet noting the change OR use the Tax Report update form that was sent out from Data Entry to companies in January.
Although the percentages continue to improve, MLS has found that despite weekly emails to companies and individual emails per listing from Data Checker - far too many MLS members are STILL not manually mapping their listings. When listings are not manually mapped and saved, they may not be found on map-based searches, may not be added to prospect carts, and subsequently are not being shared with buyers.
MLS member companies receive a weekly email reminding them of any listings that have not been manually mapped, even when the automatically mapped location is considered “Good.” It is important for members to manually map and save the location of ALL of their listings; that is the only way to include a mapped location in WIREX, the only way to include geo-coordinates in RANW MLS data feeds, and it’s the best way to make sure your listing is in the correct location when viewed on a map.
Don't forget - "MLS Stats" are available to MLS members - it allows members to quickly and easily pull statistical reports from the MLS data. Under the Misc menu, or by using the MLS Stats button on the right side of the My InnoVia screen, members will log in to the stats program with their InnoVia login and password, and then choose from a variety of reporting options.
