NJMLS COVID-19 Information Recap

Posted on 20. Mar, 2020 by in Changes, News, Support

We know you are receiving many emails on the COVID-19 outbreak right now, so to help, here is a summary to keep you up to date on anything you may have missed along with some new information:

March 27 Changes to Delayed Showing:  In an effort to ease the concerns some sellers may have about showing their property during the COVID-19 outbreak, the NJMLS has temporarily lifted the 30-day restriction on Delayed Showings and will now allow Delayed Showings to be added or extended until May 1st. The Delayed Showing form has been revised accordingly. For a copy, click here.

In addition, listings with Delayed Showings will temporarily not accrue Days on Market. Please note: the NJMLS can only control the number of “Days on Market” within our own system and not on third party sites like Zillow and realtor.com.

As a reminder, a Delayed Showing Form must be signed by the sellers, listing Broker, and listing agent and uploaded as an Associated Document to the listing when a property cannot be shown for more than three calendar days from the listing date.
