New Days on Market (DOM) Calculations

At the request of the Rules Committee, the MLSListings Board of Directors has approved a new Days on Market (DOM) policy that helps you to be more responsive to the needs of your clients.

Listings in Withdrawn, Pending, or Contingent status will freeze DOM while in that status. This means, for example, if you have clients who must withdraw a property due to a family illness or if a deal falls through while in escrow, the property will not be penalized by showing excessive DOM. This policy went into effect February 1.

Please note, DOM does not reset — it simply stops accruing while a listing is in one of the above-mentioned statuses. 


DOM = (Current Date – Original List Date) – Off Market Days

As an example, you listed a new property on MLSListings on January 11, as an Active listing. The property goes under contract on January 21, and you change the status to Contingent. For whatever reason, you change it back to Active on February 1. The DOM will pick up where it left off, which is 11.

Please be aware that while listings in Withdrawn status stop accruing DOM, they also stop receiving the benefit of automatic syndication to public Internet portals via updated data feeds.

The rules and policies for Cancelled and Expired listings remain unchanged — they must be in one of these status for at least 31 days before they can be brought back on the MLS as a new listing with zero DOM.
