What Documents do you attach to your MLS Listing in the DC Metro MRIS?

What Documents do you attach to your MLS Listing in the DC Metro Area MRIS?

I approached this Project in a scientific fashion.

I called three to four Outstanding Realtor Buds and inquired what forms they routinely upload into their MLS listings for Agents to access easily.

Tip of the day? You can email these PDF scans directly from mris.com on your iPad. Neat-O.

So anyway, I took copious notes of all their ideas.

Then I perused the RE/MAX Leading Edge required forms checklist. 

Then I peeked at the MdRealtor.org site for new forms Agents might omit.

Then I went through my New Construction and Lot Listing Folders for more ideas.

But, drum roll please, as a Grand Finale, I made a checklist in my PROCESS Excel Spreadsheet of which forms to upload to the section on MRIS called View Docs.

That way Agents can quickly assess if the PDF has their desired information.

Goal? To save lots of time!

So is the Golden Girl going to share her new Spring Golden Results Form Checklist?

I love coffee & real estate. I am out of coffee!

Love it! Here in the DFW market, we can load docs in MLS and also into CSS, the primarily used showing service. Very cool! Do I miss getting the call to ask me for the SDN and survey? Kinda. I liked the excitement of someone needing to know. But just skipping ahead straight to the offer is ok, too!

Attachments are great because they save a lot of time & are very convient for everyone. Having them readily available makes it easier to show  your listings which means more showings which means more dollars.

We have an Associated Documents feature in our MLS.  Surveys, Seller Disclosures, other Disclosures, Aerials, Plat Maps, HOA Docs... all sorts of paperwork can be placed with the Listing!

It the seller is ok with it, I like to upload all the documents that the buyer/buyer's agent will need.

There are a few more really good ideas up there! I did not put aerial or MRIS plats in the checklist but these would save time for Buyer Agents or for quick emails to interested customers!

It's amazing how it's so easy to download stuff, then you can do the Docusign thing and their on their way to the listing agent.  What did we do in the old days when we had to drive around town with paper and pens?

Some great ideas there. I have to say I get really frustrated with agents who upload nothing! It's so simple to do and as an instructor who teaches NAR and MD code of ethics I know it can be considered an agency violation if the agents do not provide the required disclosures at the time the offer is put together. If it's too much trouble to upload the docs into MRIS it makes me wonder what else that agent will decide is also too much trouble.
