Omaha Board of Realtors(R) announces new Rule Change

I have to admit, this falls under the category of rule changes that make absolutely no sense at all, however, it was voted upon by the OABRMLS Board of Directors on Sept 29th. In short, Days on Market and Cum Days on market will now be removed from all Omaha area MLS listings. The only way to view the current DOM will be to run a history report on that particular property.

This is the first time I have ever seen an MLS vote to remove DOM from the listing detail printout. No reason was given by the board on why the change was initiated.

Nebraska Listing Tips

Nebraska is a state that does not have written minimum service laws, however, the NE Real Estate Commission has made it very clear that they do not want FSBO or by owner marketing materials at a listed property. Most notably, a sign. What does this mean to our Nebraska sellers? Unfortunately, it means you can not use a FSBO sign or any other sign featuring the terms by owner. This applies to all NE brokerages. Any brokerage placing a property in a NE MLS may not allow a seller to utilize a FSBO sign. Sellers are encouraged to utilize flyers and other print marketing, however, the NE Real Commission request that these documents not contain the words For Sale By Owner, etc..

So how does this affect our listing program? It really doesn’t because we already recommend that sellers do not utilize FSBO signs or FSBO print marketing in any of our markets.
