The Matrix "Input" tab has a new status available - "Coming Soon" (CS).
The use of the Coming Soon status is optional.
"CS" listings will not require as many fields as an Active listing and may remain in Coming Soon Status for up to 14 days. All required fields must be completed to make the listing "Active".
The Listing Date for CS must be the date of entry so that the Days on Market will not include days in this Status once the listing is changed to Active.
CS Listings that are not updated to an Active status within 14 days will automatically be changed to a Temporarily Off Market (TOM) Status, but the listing agent will receive a notification prior to that date as a reminder to change to Active.
For more information, see "Information about the Coming Soon Status".
