Help Us, Help You!!!

  • Be sure to include the MLS# in any communication to the MLS about a listing data concern.
  • Do not ignore a listing violation inquiry notice!!! Fix or respond (via phone or email).  A lack of response by the due date will result in a non-waivable fine.
  • Once a fine is issued for a compliance violation, it will not be waived. No exceptions will be made.
  • Every edit to your listing causes our Data Checker program to automatically review every field and flag any possible inaccuracies.  You will receive a notification email if an explanation or correction is required.
  • Use the Listing Data Checker widget found on the Matrix home page to track any listing violations that you may have received. Watch this short video for detailed instructions…
  • Avoid missing compliance notices - Add your office administrator to the Compliance notification alerts. Simply send an email at including Administrator name, MLS User ID and email address.
