Coming Soon Status

The Coming Soon status allows listing brokers and agents to place a listing in the MLS for cooperation for up to 30 days while preparing a property for showings. This may be necessary if the home is still being staged, repairs are being made, or listing photos are pending. **This status replaced the Delayed Listing status.**

Coming Soon Status: Quick Guide

What it is: The Coming Soon Status is defined as a fully executed listing agreement between a listing broker and seller in which the listing broker and the seller are preparing the property for Active status.

Days on Market (DOM): DOM will start when the listing transitions to the Active status.

Time Limit: Listings can be in the Coming Soon status for a maximum of 30 days from the date in which all necessary signatures have been obtained on the listing agreement.

Showings: Listings in the Coming Soon status may not be shown by anyone to anyone. In the event that a Seller agrees to allows a Coming Soon listing to be shown, the listing status must be changed to Active prior to the showing.

Distribution: The MLS does not distribute Coming Soon listings through IDX or to any third-party real estate advertising sites.

Marketing: Public marketing is permitted by the listing broker so long as the marketing indicates the property is Coming Soon.

Status Changes: Once the listing transitions from the Coming Soon status to the Active status, it cannot revert back to the Coming Soon status during the terms of the same listing agreement.

Required Seller Authorization: Must obtain seller permission in writing prior to placing a listing in the Coming Soon status, which can be obtained by using the PAAR Coming Soon Seller Authorization Form.
