A technology provider for real estate multiple listing services has ramped up its system to monitor rules violations and notify MLS staff when there’s a problem with property listing data.

Solid Earth has enhanced its List-It MLS system with “Citation Manager,” which performs data validation and rules enforcement automatically, without having to have a staff person oversee each step of the process.

The Citation Manager runs real-time checks of listing data for violations, irregularities and incorrect information. Examples include bad dates, missing photos, MLS area validation, status change issues and information that should not be included in remarks sections such as phone numbers and “call first” instructions.

If missing, erroneous or extraneous information is found, the listing is flagged for the MLS Staff and e-mails are automatically generated notifying the offending agent, their broker and/or an office manager that a correction is required. Notification e-mails indicate the specific items that need to be corrected. Additional options include fine/penalty notification e-mails if the violation is not corrected within staff-defined period of days.

The new functionality aims to improve listing data integrity, create a uniform MLS rules and regulations system, and save time, among other things.

The Emerald Coast Association of Realtors is first to receive the Citation Manager enhancement, according to a Solid Earth announcement.

Huntsville, Ala.-based Solid Earth provides MLS technology and real estate Internet mapping services to 18 local Realtor associations in 13 states.
