Upcoming MLS status changes On June 26, CMLS will implement three new listing statuses and eliminate some old statuses in both TEMPO™ and Fusion. These changes are designed to simplify the MLS with statuses that are easier to understand for everyone. A summary of the status changes is below, but for a more detailed outline of the changes, click here. Before this change occurs, each member and each IDX/third party vendor will receive an email from Steve Byrd announcing the date and details of this change.
Status changes summary: In “for sale” categories like Single-Family, Condo/Townhouse, Lots/Acres/Farms, Multifamily and Commercial, we will be eliminating “Contingent Continue to Show,” “Conditional Continue to Show” and “Pending” and replacing them with “Under Contract Show” and “Under Contract No Show.” For rentals, we are replacing “Conditional Continue to Show” and “Pending” with “Application Received.” Several “status date” fields will also be updated. Click here for full details.
