What do you think about duplicate listings? Are you allowed to put your listing in more than one category? Say you had 5 acres with a small 400 sf house... would you put that in vacant land, or in residential? Do you want it to get in both categories just in case? Does your MLS allow it? What are the pros and cons? Currently our MLS does allow it, but not many agents actually do it. It becomes a bit tricky if they forget to update both at the same time.
Our admin people say that the duplicate listings can mess up the statistics if agents don't deal with the extra one after the first one closes, or expires. Especially in a small market like ours, those extra listings can skew the statistics and give a false impression. Ideally, the twin listing should be cancelled once the primary one goes into escrow.... but even then it creates a statistic of a listing that was cancelled, when in reality it sold.
