Editor’s note: In an earlier version of this blog post we may have unintentionally implied that REALTOR® membership was required for MLS access. This is not the case, alternative options exist for MLS access.
Tuesday was a tough day for around 4,100 Subscribers, so we would like to take a moment and address a few question posted to our Facebook Page. Most of the questions are best answered by SEVRAR, but we’ll try our best:
How can ARMLS shut my office off?
We didn’t, SEVRAR shut down offices and individuals for non-payment, or offices for full-participation. The association by-laws say that all licensees of an office need be in good standing or the whole office loses access (MLS, lockbox, etc.) and benefits.
SEVRAR is not my association, why was my access revoked?
You might not have a relationship with SEVRAR but your office may. For example, you may be with SAAR but your office might be with SEVRAR. Since shut-offs happened at the office level, many lost access.
How do I regain access to flexmls?
Contact your broker. Your broker must resolve this issue. ARMLS cannot restore your service.
