A number of MLSs have adopted “coming soon” statuses and other policies in an effort to address private listing networks and “pocket listings.” Generally, “coming soon” refers to properties that are listed and filed with the MLS, even though the property is not available for showing and/or purchase for a specific period of time. This page sets forth information and resources related to this topic.
