A while back I wrote a blog post about the various abbreviations in our RMLS™ system  and what they meant.

Coming Soon – No Showing or CSN

We now have a new category to search for Lake Oswego real estate called “Coming Soon-No Showing”, or CSN.bettyjung.com

THE BASICS

The Coming Soon-No Showing (CSN) status is for short-term use. As a Lake Oswego Real Agent who is subscribed to our RMLS™,  I may use CSN to prepare a listing of a property for Active (ACT) status. The listing may be in CSN status for no longer than 21 days and must have a valid listing agreement signed by the listing brokerage and the seller as well as seller approval for the CSN.

CSN status will indicate the listing firm and seller(s) are preparing the property for sale and marketing before the listing becomes active on our RMLSweb™. As such, CSN will be considered an off-market status as the listing is not actively being marketed and is not ready to be shown.

USING CSN ON RMLSWEB™

Listings can stay in CSN status for up to 21 days and will not allow a date further than 21 days in the future from being entered as the list date. If a listing agent submits a list date of fewer than 21 days in the future, the agent may extend the list date up until that 21st day—something that may come in handy if more time is needed to prep a property than was originally estimated.

The status of a CSN listing may be manually changed to ACT or WTH at any time during the 21 day period. When the list date is reached or the listing has been in the system for 21 days RMLSweb™ will automatically change the status of the listing to ACT at midnight. Once a listing is out of CSN status it cannot be reverted back, nor can properties that were once in CSN status be re-entered as a new CSN listing (exceptions: the property has expired or has been withdrawn for over 90 days; the property has been relisted with a new brokerage; or the property has been sold).

Open houses and broker tour offerings cannot be set up in Listing Load for a listing in CSN status. Listing View Count reports will still be available showing viewing counts from within RMLSweb™, but Days on Market (DOM)/Cumulative Days on Market (CDOM) will not accrue while a listing is in CSN status.

RMLSWEB™ SEARCH AND CSN

CSN will not be included in the default status criteria when doing a new search for properties —ACT and BMP will remain the two default statuses. CSN listings will be excluded from exported reports and consumer prospecting auto-emails. As agents subscribed to RMLS™, we will be able to include CSN in our own watch lists. However, the listings will state “no showings permitted” in showing instructions on agent reports, with the actual showing instructions hidden while in CSN status.
