In this situation you will need to delay the input of the listing into MLS until the date the seller wishes to go into MLS in coming soon status on August 31st and you will also need to indicate that the seller wishes to go into coming soon status on August 31st until September 14th. Below are the correct forms and how to fill them out to accomplish this:

  1. Coming Soon/Exempt/Delayed Authorization form – For this scenario, you will use this form twice. The first one will be with the 2nd option selected and initialed by the seller indicating the listing is going to be delayed from input into the MLS until 8/31/2020. The second version of this form will be with the first option checked and initialed indicating the seller wishes to go into coming soon status until 9/14/2020.
  2. Listing Agreement – The start date on the listing agreement should be the date you are taking the listing, in this case August 17th.
  3. MLSSAZ Residential Profile Sheet – The listing date on this form should be the date that the listing is being input into MLS. In this case it will be August 31st since that is the date the delay ends, and it is going into MLS as a coming soon listing.
