Multi-Class Listings

Multi-class Listings allows certain properties to be listed under more than one property classification or type. Some properties can fall under multiple classes, and you may want to list such properties under another property type for additional exposure.

Since listings are APN based, once listed, a property may not be listed again while the APN is on market. For a minimal payment of $50.00, MLS Listings Support will be able to enter an additional APN on behalf of the listing agent. Simply follow the steps below when requesting a Multi-Class listing:

  1. Enter your listing in the primary class or best fit property type onto the MLS Listings database and obtain an Active MLS Number (listing number).

  2. Enter the listing information for the second class. Be sure to follow the instructions below regard which classes can be multi-classed together.

  3. Once the draft has been entered and clear of errors, verify the listing.

  4. An error message will appear saying that “An on-market listing exists for this address. Please contact customer service for assistance” and it will not allow the listing to be submitted.

  5. Call MLSListings to provide payment or Fax or email the payment to MLS Listings Support:

    Fax: 408-874-1250


  6. Once MLSListings has received payment, MLSListings staff will submit the listing and a new MLS# will be assigned.

Payment Form

To check to see if your Multi-Class Listing has been added, go to your My Listings page, and you should see more than one listing for the same property.

Once your property is listed under your chosen Multi-Class, you can edit both listings and make the changes normally. Please note that making a change on one listing does not automatically update the other listing. You have to make the same change to each listing.

Status changes will also affect the listings. If you have accepted an offer, please make sure that you change the Status on the correct Class listing. On a Multi-Class listing, when going from Active to Pending, the other listing(s) will automatically be changed to Withdrawn. Then, when going from Pending to Sold, the other listing(s) will be changed to Canceled. This is to ensure that no duplicate Sales are recorded.
