One thing I really like about the NOMAR MLS system is that they require every single MLS listing to include the disclosures. This means that anytime a broker inputs a listing into the system, they must also add the disclosures as an attachment to the MLS listing. Any broker that sees the property through the MLS database can print off the disclosures ahead of time and bring them to the initial showing. NOMAR enforces this policy by issuing fines to any broker who inputs a listing without the disclosures. I personally love this rule for a number of reasons. This eliminates any risk of the seller forgetting to provide the state mandated disclosures to the buyer in a timely fashion. In addition, it gives showing agents more information to provide their clients during showings. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.
