Cancelled Vs. Killed Listings

So you’re inputting a listing and save it then realize something major like price is very wrong…what do you do? Call our office and our administrative staff will correct the mistake WITHOUT taking it out of the NEW status. If this occurs when our office is closed, please call during regular office hours for assistance. In cases when you must have it removed ASAP and CMLS staff is unavailable, you can CANCEL the listing provided you call us when next we open and report this to us. We will then KILL the listing from the system therefore removing all traces of said listing. Leaving a CANCELED listing in the system and inputting a NEW, correct one will skew our statistics and cause both the listing agent and office to receive data verification violation notices. When in doubt, call us!

Market Areas

Did you know that there is a complete list of all towns and their corresponding market areas listed on our website under RESOURCES?
When used properly, the MARKET AREA field is a great way to market your listing as well as help your fellow agents narrow their searches. Please try to be as accurate as possible when choosing a market area for your listings ,especially if you are not familiar with the town.
Each town within our service area is broken down into geographic market areas, which have their own unique code. Each town also has its own unique NONE area, which should be used if your listing does not fall within any of the established areas. Make sure to use the NONE code that corresponds to the correct town. If you enter the wrong NONE code, your listing will appear in the wrong town.
