Status Field Move: The Status field will be moved from the STATUS/LOCATION container to the start of the Input screen (CONTRACT container). The STATUS field will be the 3rd field on the Input screen. The STATUS/LOCATION Container will be renamed to LOCATION.

New Listing Entry Tip: Always follow the order of the fields on the input screen. Paragon includes many field relationships and many field rules. Skipping fields or jumping around from container to container can create problems.
On Monday, November 16, 2020 IRMLS added an additional Active status to the Paragon MLS system. The status Listed Coming Soon (LCS) is available in all property classes for new listings only.
The new Active sub status (LCS) is to be used when members are working with Sellers who are ready to sign a Listing Contract but are not ready to show/market their property. The Seller will sign the Listing Agreement along with Listed Coming Soon Addendum that includes the LCS rules and Start Showing Date. The Start Showing Date can be 1 to 21 days from the date of Input. The agent will enter the listing into the MLS using LCS Status and email the Authorization form to RACI MLS Staff.
