Adding Seller Opt Outs to flexmls Web for VOW policy compliance

Feb 3, 2009 Michael Wurzer

Over on our RETS Support site, we’ve posted a page about some new features we’ll be releasing on February 11 to help our MLS customers implement a VOW policy as required by the NAR/DOJ litigation settlement.  The main change to flexmls Web is there will be new seller opt out options on the Export tab in listing maintenance.  We’ve also made the data captured from these new flags available in the RETS Manager through a new VOW template type that can be set up according to the specific VOW policies each MLS adopts.

Let us know if any of you have any questions regarding these new features.  Also, if you have questions about VOWs or the terms of the settlement, I encourage you to check out Brian Larson’s MLS Tesseract blog.
