    We just recently got an email from CRMLS stating they have noticed an increase in the use of Craiglist Posting Features within Various Products.

    Note from the MLS: “This feature takes the MLS data via the IDX feed and allows agents to post listings directly onto Craigslist even for listings in which they are not the listing agent or broker. This practice is prohibited by our rules and is not authorized in any of our licensing agreements. In fact, CRMLS members found posting listing data onto Craigslist have received and will continue to receive Tier 3 Citations for violating the MLS Rules which generally range between $1,000 to $2,500 per post. Craigslist is not an IDX compliant website and the IDX program does not envision this type of use. ”

    If you are a developer that currently has any of these tools in place please review and make sure you do not have any clients on this MLS using that specific feature.

    If you have any questions feel free to let me know.
