NAR’s article on “Coming Soon”

What does it mean to advertise a property as “coming soon”? The answer to that seemingly simple question varies among agents, brokers, MLSs, and state regulators nationwide. While the real estate industry has not agreed on a definition of “coming soon,” one thing is certain and consistent — a broker’s decision to market a seller’s property as “coming soon” must always be made based on the client’s informed determination of what best serves the client’s interests.
