With a change to a new MLS® System comes new Data Input forms for your listings. What’s new about the forms? Plenty! Check out the information below, and then follow the links to the new forms and their explanatory notes.

What you need to know about the new forms

  1. There will be just two Data Input forms instead of five:
  • RESIDENTIAL – to be used for residential (freehold/condominium), multi-residential, farm and vacant land (lots)
  • COMMERCIAL – to be used for commercial retail property, industrial, investment, office, sale of business, store with apartment/office and vacant land (commercial)
  1. You will be required to use these forms for listings you will be entering into RAHB’s Matrix MLS® System starting on the cutover date. Because many fields will have changed from the old forms, you would be unable to properly complete the new fields in Broker Load in Matrix if you use the old forms. For the same reason, you can’t use the new forms for listings you are entering into Fusion before the cutover to Matrix.
  1. The new forms will soon be available for sale in the Realty Shoppe – watch for a notice with the date.  They will also be available in WEBForms® on cutover day.
