Current Listings: Section 18: Compilation of Current Listing Information
Any compilation of current listing information shall display the following notice in a conspicuous manner:
Notice to Association Members
Under the long-established policy of this association, the (state) association of REALTORS®, and the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®:
The broker’s compensation for services rendered in respect to any listing is solely a matter of negotiation between the broker and his or her client, and is not fixed, controlled, recommended, or maintained by any persons not a party to the listing agreement.
The compensation paid by a listing broker to a cooperating broker in respect to any listing is established by the listing broker and is not fixed, controlled, recommended, or maintained by any persons other than the listing broker.
In addition, it is recommended that all associations publish this notice to their general membership at least annually. Every association operating a multiple listing service is required to certify to the National Association that the notice to association members concerning the negotiability of brokerage commissions, subagency compensation, and compensation to buyer’s agents has been reproduced in their compilation of current listing information. Further, associations that do not operate an MLS shall publish the notice to association members in their newsletter or other vehicle for membership information dissemination and shall so certify to the National Association.
