Vigilante justice on the Triangle MLS? "Report a Violation"

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with Realty Arts

Tomorrow morning should be interesting.

Major changes are in store for our MLS solution.  The one I talked about the other day.  It has had a few tweaks and some largish additions that are having a Grand Opening Thursday Morning.

My early favorite is the one-click "Report a Violation" email pane.  (Pain?)

Click and the "violation" is reported to the Compliance Department. 

Can you say "Server Crash?"

I just searched a small condo community, and it shows 4 different Area/Sub-Area locations.  It just isn't THAT big.  Sloppy.

I actually expect that MLS Members will lay off the "Report a Violation" button, living within your basic Motes and Timbers operating philosophy.

That is good.  We are so sloppy that a good morning of clicking will crash a server.

Wrong subdivision names, street names, FHA violations, etc.

At the same time, due to some major changes in fields and drop-downs, we are told to check all of our listings tomorrow for compliance.

I can hear the servers groaning already.

Think I'll log in about 10:00 and see if I CAN log in.

Donna,

Training is a good thing... If you can get the horse to the water, that horse might drink.

No new forms yet.  I'm in the middle of a couple of things that have stopped me from clicking the update button.

ZipForms desktop, so I control when I update.  Coming real soon, though, right?

I wish they would leave it up to the BIC on this one and the office manager. I know we have a lot of places that are a one man shop so to speak of here. But I see server crash over and over again.

Susan,

I understand, but I think that some people, and I am a Master Procrastinator, would find a way to keep delaying...

Mike, I noticed some early problems with the Tempo update - such as it pulling in the wrong subdivision name for one of my listings! Urgh! Glad I checked this today. For example, in one neighborhod where I have a listing, I know there were at least 13 listings yesterday. However, today, only 3 showed up. Upon closer examination, I saw what happened. Some of the subdivision data ported over incorrectly.

darleen,

Thanks for pointing that out.

Means it is a good time to review all listings.

I updated first thing in the morning, and all looked good.

All in all, I am delighted with how smoothly things have gone.
