“NAR committee: MLSs should have option to require photos, disclosures”
Council of MLSs requested trade group’s support


WASHINGTON — Multiple listing services should have the option of requiring their members to submit photos with listings, Realtors serving on a policy committee recommended today at the National Association of Realtors Midyear Legislative Meetings & Trade Expo.
Although many MLSs have had mandatory photo policies in place for years, in recent months NAR had begun informing some that the trade group’s policies did not expressly grant them such authority.
The Council of MLSs, a group representing MLSs, Realtor associations and MLS vendors, maintained that while that might be the case, there was nothing in NAR’s policy prohibiting MLSs from requiring that photos and property disclosure forms be submitted with listings (see story).
