In 2022, more than 2000 subscribers had a little extra time to focus on clients because they were able to edit their off-market listings. Allowing self-editing of off-market listings drove self-reported violations down 33% from the previous year. Along with being a time saver, immediate corrections made to data in the MLS system provides all users with the most accurate information.

How we’re addressing violations in 2023
Smart input field adjustments in 2022 made a big difference in Public Remarks violations. In 2023, ARMLS will continue to find ways to help subscribers prevent Public Remarks field violations via smart input fields and by reminding subscribers to use the Populate Tax Data button to reduce Address & Assessor Number errors on their listings.
Self-reported violations for 2022

As a reminder, self-reported errors are issues where a subscriber has reached out to Data Integrity for a correction. Oftentimes, these corrections can be made without staff assistance.
