Updates to MRED's Rules & Regulations

MRED has released a new version of their Rules and Regulations. These changes are reflected in Sections 1, 6.1.1 and 9.

The most significant change that was approved involves when a listing must be marketed in the MLS system.

Section 1: Any listing entered into connectMLS (whether in the Private Listing Network or Standard Listing Network), must be entered within 72 hours of the list date or within 24 hours of advertising to the general public, whichever occurs first. Advertising includes for sale signs, public websites and print media.

The current MRED Rules and Regulations are now posted on connectMLS (under Forms tab, "MRED Listing Forms, etc." page) and (both clean and compare versions, under Rules & Photos tab, Rules & Regs page).

Due to technical difficulties yesterday, we are resending with the correct links to the Rules & Regulations changes
