NAR addresses 're-listing' practice

White paper offers guidance on 'new listings'

ORLANDO — A white paper introduced during a National Association of Realtors committee seeks to clear up the murky issues associated with properties that are "re-listed" by Realtors.

The practice of re-listing for-sale homes — or temporarily pulling them off of the market and then reintroducing them as "new" listings — has been a controversial topic in the industry, and the white paper offers guidance for Realtors’ conduct while not mandating any new policies.
