Status Reminders!


MLSOK listing status definitions are defined in the MLSOK Rules and Regulations, and can also be found in the MLSOK Compliance Guidelines.  These are tied to contractual statuses.  If you have questions on any of these statuses, please do not hesitate to contact the MLSOK Helpdesk at


Status Definitions

Active Status:  Active status means a property is available for purchase. This status is used even when contingent contracts are in place.   Active listings are the only listings included on all IDX websites, through listing syndication channels, the MLSOK public portal (including the GoMLSOK app),, and through prospect notifications (consumer portals).

Pending Status:  Pending status on listings means a contract to purchase is in place and any and all contingencies have been met.  Pending listings are required to be updated to Sold within 2 business days from the close date.

Sold Status:  Sold status on listings means that the property has closed.  Sold information can be updated by both listings agents and their brokers for 30 days after close date; and by listing brokers indefinitely.

Expired Status:  Expired status on listings means that the listing agreement between the listing broker and the seller has expired.  Listing agents who secure a written extension can update the listing expiration date when the listing is still active.   For up to 30 days after a listing expires, the listing broker can place the listing back to active and extend the expiration date.

Withdrawn Status:  Withdrawn status on listings means that the listing is no longer available to show, BUT there is still a listing agreement in place between the listing broker and the seller.  Withdrawn listings will expire on the listing expiration date on the listing.  Only brokers can change a listing to Withdrawn or back to active.

Released Status:  Released status on listings means that the broker and the seller no longer have a listing agreement in place.   Only a broker can change the status of a listing to Released.

Temp Off Market Status:  Temp Off Market status on a listing means that the listing is temporarily not available for showing or purchase.  This status is only good for 30 days.  Both listing agents and their brokers can change a listing status to Temp Off Market.  The listing will automatically set back to active within 30 days.

Incomplete Status:  Incomplete Listing status on a listing means that the listing has been entered as a draft only.  Only the listing agent has access to his/her own Incomplete Listings.  These listings do not expire.  Only once a photo has been added to an incomplete listing can it be submitted as Active.
