Listing Status Update for SFARMLS

On the night of December 11th 2018, we will be converting our Listing Statuses (in all data, past and present)
to the recognized RESO Status List extended by the RESO Special Listing Conditions field. You will see these changes
when you open SFARMLS on December 12th, 2018.

Our new status labels more closely match the language you are using day-to-day and will provide you with the vocabulary to talk about listings data with other real estate agents regionally, nationally, and even globally. This Status Translation Table is explained in text below the table. Click here to download a PDF of this information.

PROJECT SUMMARY

While SFARMLS has successfully differentiated itself from less innovative MLSs with several ambitious initiatives, the core MLS application has changed relatively little. Recognizing that this has to change, SFAR has embarked on a major project updating the way listing data is organized, stored and used inside the MLS application you use today. Fixing the data is the first piece of this complex puzzle of modernizing and updating the applications you need in order to be a successful agent. There is no better way to do this than to implement changes based on the work done by the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO).

This means that our listing data types, listing statuses and data fields will be changing in ways you will clearly see in your day to day use of the MLS. For the technical out there, this means that SFARMLS will be 100% RESO standards compliant natively in the database, and by extension, in the system that is used to send data to Brokerages, Vendors, and MLS partners in the Bay Area (such as BAREIS in Marin and MLSListings in San Mateo). 

NOTES FOR BROKERS & AGENTS
NOTES FOR VENDORS
  • Because listing status codes are frequently used in structured RETS queries (DMQL) it is critical that you analyze these changes against your system configuration to see if any changes will be required the night we convert (December 11th to 12th).
  • Be aware of some transposed values (codes) in the above table: "C" used to mean "continue to show" and now it means "canceled" (dramatically differnet meaning) so be careful when updating your system.
  • Some of the existing status information you may have been capturing from our MlsStatus field is now contained in a field called SPLC (Special Listing Conditions) which may require you to adjust your software/app or data processor(s).
  • You are not required to adopt these status names in the display side of your applications on the date of conversion, but SFARMLS recommends you begin looking at any changes in the application you need to align your products with these permanent changes.
  • If you have not received a notification about these changes directly via email, you may not have current or correct contact information stored in the SFARMLS RETS system.
