LISTINGS QUALITY POLICY
Users of IV2 services (including all properties owned and operated by IV2, related data and/or related services) (“Services”) acknowledge and agree to comply with the following Listings Quality Policy (“Policy”). IV2 reserves the right to remove any content that violates any of IV2’s terms
1. ADVERTISING AND CLAIMNG LISTINGS.
a. Advertising Listings.
Except as provided in this section 1(a), listings (regardless of the type) may only be advertised by the real estate Agent (the “Agent”) who is the contracted, exclusive listing Agent for such listing. A listing may also be advertised by the exclusive listing Agent’s broker owner or team lead. A broker owner or team lead that advertises a listing on behalf of the listing Agent must update their profile on the Services so it represents the team or company instead of an individual Agent.
b. Claiming Listings.
If you mistakenly claim a listing, you must promptly release such claim on the listing. If you mistakenly claim a listing that is provided to IV2 via a data feed, you must promptly contact the source of the data feed to cancel the listing. If you claim a listing that has already been claimed by another party, the original party will be notified. Please notify the listing support team if you believe that someone has erroneously claimed a listing on IV2. You can also use the "Report incorrect listing information
" option within the sidebar of the listing page, to request further investigation.
Bank properties are open and are generally not represented by an individual Agent. Additionally, IV2 publishes foreclosure listings. As long as you are the contracted, exclusive listing Agent, you may advertise the foregoing listings on the Services. IV2 may require that you provide the listing contract(s) that verify you have an exclusive right to advertise the listing. If IV2 is unable to verify that you are the contracted, exclusive listing Agent, IV2 may remove the listing(s) and/or your claim on the listing(s).
d. Undisclosed Addresses.
A complete address is required for IV2 to investigate listings and maintain listing quality. Each listing posted directly via the IV2 website must include a complete address, city, lot and block where applicable. If you do not want to disclose the address to the public, you must select the "Mask Location" option within your listing. If IV2 is unable to verify a listing address, IV2 may remove the listing at any time, without warning.
e. Mobile and Manufactured Homes.
All mobile and manufactured homes without a deeded lot must have their property type set as “Mobile/manufactured.”
f. Hypertext Links.
If the listing includes a hypertext link, the hypertext link may only link to Your website and may not link to the Broker Portal Project website, other real estate sites or other competing website, or any site that is not 100% owned and controlled by you, your Agent, or your broker.
g. Auction Listings.
Foreclosed Bank-owned listings are the only auction-type properties currently supported by IV2. For approval, a written request with supporting documents must be submitted to IV2, clearly demonstrating an approved auction-specific feed. You may not post an auction listing or submit under any other inapplicable listing category.
2. LIMITATIONS ON SELF-PROMOTION AND MARKETING.
IV2 restricts the inclusion of self-promoting information on listings and professional profile pages. This includes, but is not limited to, self-promotion on photos, in names and/or in listing descriptions.
a. Photos and Video Walkthroughs.
You may not include marketing information, including, without limitation, an Agent’s name, company name, logo, phone number and/or email address on listing photos or in video walkthroughs, whether as text, a watermark, or otherwise.
b. Listing Descriptions.
You may not include marketing information, including, without limitation, an Agent’s name, phone number and/or email address within a listing description.
c. Profile Name and Photo.
You may not include contact information, or any promotional or marketing information (including a phone number, email address, website URL, promotional tagline or slogan, or discount offer) in your profile photo or as part of your name as it appears in your profile. Your name as it appears in your profile may not include titles, descriptions, or any information other than your name or your business or team name. You may not display a business or team name in your profile other than the official business or team name under which you formally provide services to clients both on and off of IV2. IV2 may require you to provide documentation to support the foregoing.
3. LISTING FEEDS.
a. Complete Data Set.
Listing feeds that do not include a complete set of data that includes, without limitation, photos, listing description and home facts, will not be accepted. You may not intentionally degrade the data you send to IV2 in the listing feed in any manner.
b. Daily Updates.
Listing feeds must be updated at least one time per day to ensure that IV2 users have access to the most up to date and accurate information, and you may not intentionally delay the delivery of the listing feed.
