Release Notes – 2021.12.16

 2021 M12 16

Highlights

  • MLS Compliance
    This release includes 2 different compliance items for CA-MRMLS (California Regional MLS). Versions of these have also been passed at NAR, so I expect to see these trickle down through other MLSs soon.
    • More clarity (via formatting and presentation) for how to contact the actual listing agent/broker vs the advertising agent (our customer). As more MLSs start to give us direction on how to implement this, rather than proliferating many new compliance flags and versions of how to format the content, we'll be seeking to come up with a single global solution that satisfies most of them.
    • The ability to display the $quot;offer of compensation$quot; - meaning how much the listing broker is offering to the buyers agent. Per the new NAR rules, for websites with IDX feeds, this is up to the individual website owner to decide, so we've created it as a new, per account idx setting. BUT, that setting is only available after the MLSs on that account provide us the data in their feed and then we map it. So for now, we're handling this requests on demand as customers ask for it in Support.
  • Performance
    We've trimmed out around 500kb of javascript from our react code for this release. Lighter = faster. We have a lot more work to do on this front.

Updates

  • MI-SWMRIC keyword updates
    Rebuilt keyword search lookup tables for MI-SWMRIC after a data provider change deprecated previous mappings.

    Added bedrooms on main floor keyword search term to NC-CMLS.

  • CA-MRMLS Listing Broker Contact Compliance

  • MLS compliance: Display offer of compensation
  • Ensure that the ListingUpdateProcess doesn't double-process listings
    This compares the modified date on Feed records to the date than an account last had a full listing update (the value show in the Control Panel - see screenshot), and it the modified date is older, then the listing will not be updated. Not sure how you can test this on stage, unless you know when the last modified dates are on feed listings.
