On May 21, at their regularly scheduled meeting, the MLS Committee will consider reenabling the in-person open house feature in Flexmls.
Greater Chattanooga Realtors never banned in-person open houses. Rather, in light of the pandemic and continued CDC recommendations (i.e., masks, social distancing), in late March, we disabled the in-person open house function and enabled the virtual open house function.
In the meantime, should you decide to host an in-person open house, you are encouraged to consider NAR’s open house guidance found at https://www.nar.realtor/coronavirus-a-guide-for-realtors.
In addition to marketing open houses on social media and elsewhere, listing agents may include an open house date/ time in the Public Remarks (i.e., “Open House Sunday 2-4”), provided there is no branding or personal contact info in the Public Remarks.
