Scheduling of Open Houses Suspended by NorthstarMLS Yesterday
Yesterday, the Executive Committee of NorthstarMLS voted to suspend all Open House scheduling in the NorthstarMLS system, until further notice. All prior published Open Houses have also been removed.
NorthstarMLS serves Minnesota and the border counties of western Wisconsin, including Saint Croix, Pierce, Pepin, Polk and Burnett, as well as Douglas, Ashland and Bayfield County.
The removal of Open Houses under this removal order also includes any IDX feeds or syndication sites which report Open Houses.
I'm not surprised by the adoption of this policy. Ever since we began hearing about new guidelines restricting gatherings of over ten people, it's been apparent that Open Houses would soon be targeted as a potential risk.
