Checking on the Status of Your MLS Application

You can check on the status of your MLS Application by returning to the MLS Administration page and reviewing the status column. It can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks, or more, for a MLS board to approve your application.

Status Types

  • Agent: review instructions: You must download all required forms, complete them and return them to Market Leader according to the instructions on the forms. This status level begins when you start a new MLS application and remains in effect until Market Leader confirms receipt of all required forms.
  • In Review: Market Leader has confirmed receipt of all required forms and is reviewing them. Forms are reviewed in the order they are received.
  • Agent: resend forms: Market Leader found unresolved issues or has questions about an application form. You will receive an email requesting that you resolve any issues and resubmit your forms.
  • Sent to MLS: The forms have been completed correctly and Market Leader has submitted them to the MLS. MLS boards can take anywhere from 1-6 weeks to respond.
  • Agent: fix MLS issue: Market Leader has requested for you to fix any issues raised by the MLS board (e.g. membership dues, name change, etc. . .)
  • Approved: Your MLS has approved your application and you now have a MLS IDX feed live on your website.
  • Deactivated: An MLS IDX feed is no longer active on your website, possibly because of a
    non-compliance issue or by your request.
  • Researching: Market Leader is researching your write-in request for a MLS that is not currently on our list of available IDX feeds. The Market Leader IDX team will contact you to review and discuss next steps.
  • Acquiring new MLS: Market Leader is in the process of getting MLS approval and building a new MLS feed to add to the list of known feeds in your area.
  • Request Canceled: You canceled an application either through the MLS Administration interface or by contacting Market Leader Customer Support.
  • IDX not available: An MLS IDX feed is not available. This might be because of a MLS is for brokers only, does not provide an IDX feed to anyone, or has exceeded a limit they imposed on the total number of IDX feeds available to agents.

Additional Helpful Tips

  • Review your form and make sure all required fields and signatures are completed.
  • Any missing information will delay processing of your form and you will be required to resubmit your form after providing the missing information.
