MRIS (Maryland MLS) More Time To Get It Done!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with HomeRome Realty 410-530-2400 311291


I love finding ways to save time especially at the end of the year. In two days I will have more time to search and enter information into our Maryland MRIS..MLS..Multiple Listing Service!

Many times while on the MLS... searching, updating listings or placing a brand new HomeRome listing into the computer, I get a 'timed out'' message? 

Amazing how quickly 30 minutes goes by...especially if you have to take a phone call. That's why I have always chosen to enter my MLS data late at night.. when there are usually no interruptions.

No more!

Starting December 30th, just 2 days from now, we will have double and quadruple time... two full hours on both Matrix and Keystone before being forced to log in again. This will give us more working time.  Thank you MRIS for listening...



Giving you more time to get more done. Extended 2 hour time outs begin December 30th!

  • Matrix and time out time has DOUBLED from 1 to 2 hours!
  • Keystone time out time has QUADRUPLED from 30 minutes to 2 hours!
  • Begins Thursday, December 30th

They have said this before, and no longer time on Keystone, so let's hope they come through this time.  I'm get very agrevated when I'm working on MLS and I have a customer that may need my time and I go back and have to log in again.  We pay for a service, quite heftily and I think there should be even longer times than this to stay on-line.  Cheaters will find a way to cheat.  Aren't we required to be "ethical"?!!  Of course, this coming from me who hated the "fob" system and then missed it when they took it away, go figure!! LOL  Thanks for letting us know. :) Gail

Gail, I would like a system that could stay plugged in all the time...just like AR. We are so impatient, it must take all of 5 seconds to log in.  Guess you don't remember when we could not get mls online.

Margaret~How lucky you are! Our MLS times us out after 30 minutes... but I try to keep watch and save and close and come back so it will reset the timer!

P.S. I love my book THANK YOU!!

Margaret - interesting! We don't have a time out specifically for data entry. However our MLS will required you to re-authenticate if you are not active on the system for 2 hours or more.
