Last year the HAR International Advisory Group, IAG, under the leadership of the 2017 International Chair Nelly Mitford, CIPS, created an international listing agreement form. A three-page document, it was designed so HAR members could input global listings into our MLS with total transparency.

Area 82 is the area of our MLS where you can input listings from a foreign country along with Puerto Rico. In 2017 the HAR Board of Directors approved a motion to allow our MLS Quality Assurance team to request a copy of the listing agreement form from any agent inputting a foreign property into the MLS. The reason is to ensure the integrity of the data; to prevent listings from being there that do not have a signed listing agreement. Many countries do not have an MLS and most global real estate agents do not understand the ideas of cooperation and compensation among agents.

You can access this new form under the Forms Manager area of the Members Only Portal. It is Form 301.
