NAR Board Approves MLS Recommendations

Addresses will be required in MLS

The Board of Directors of the National Association of REALTORS® today adopted a new MLS policy requiring that the property address for all residential listings filed with the MLS be disclosed and available to MLS participants and subscribers at the time the listing is submitted to the MLS. 

Where an address does not exist, a parcel identification number or legal description of the property’s location must be filed with the MLS. The change doesn’t preclude sellers who need privacy from keeping their address (or entire listing) off of publicly accessible displays of their property. 

The board also amended MLS policy to facilitate the display of sales data in non-disclosure areas to allow, at local MLS discretion, the prohibition to display the sold price of a property.
