MLS Rules & Policies

McKean County Association of Realtors® MLS is considered a ‘sub-board’ in the Upstate New York Real Estate Information Services LLC (UNYREIS) MLS system in Rochester, NY.  Things to know:

  • UNYREIS is a founding partner in the New York State Alliance of MLS’s (NYSAMLS’s).
  • The NYSAMLS’s Matrix database includes listings from UNYREIS (including sub-boards of Chautauqua-Cattaraugus NY MLS and McKean County PA MLS), Central New York Information Services (CNYIS) in Syracuse, NY (including sub-boards of Cortland MLS, Jefferson Lewis MLS and Mohawk Valley MLS) and the Western New York Real Estate Information Service MLS (WNYREIS) in Buffalo, NY.

As a convenience, we’ve taken the 20+ page NYSAMLS’s rules and regs and summarized the ones that most apply to how data should be displayed in the MLS to avoid fines and be in compliance.
