Solution How do I create an MLS compliant, non-branded Single Property Site for my MLS Virtual Tour Link?

Many MLSs permit the use of Virtual Tours with MLS Listings as long as they are "non-Branded" virtual tour links - i.e. they must not advertise or promote the listing agent or listing brokers details.

By adding some additional code at the end of the URL you use as your Virtual Tour Link, the site will comply with MLS requirements and NOT display your contact and branding details.

We have two versions of this as some MLSs are have very severe restrictions, whilst others are more flexible.

To see these links for your LIVE site - click the VIEW menu item for your site to see all the Links.
The Share and View ICON is also shown in the EDIT page too.

North TEXAS - NTREIS has added the following URL to their validation tables, so use the first unbranded link in our VIEW page - www.singlepropertysites.com/display/?mls2=yes&number=


If you are interested in creating these manually - then read on! .....


(Basic) Removal of branding and agent contact data (meets most requirements)
To do this, simply add this to the end of the URL.
?mls=yes
for example:
http://www.1122mainstreet.com?mls=yes 

Try it!

You will see how the "Contact" page and branding is all removed.

(Severe) Removal of all branding and contact data AND all External Links to any other site
To do this, simply add this to the end of the URL.
?mls2=yes
for example:
http://www.1122mainstreet.com?mls2=yesTry it!

You will see how the contact links and branding is all removed AND all links to maps, aerial views, census data etc


To see the regular site, you will now need to open a new browser window and type in www.1122MainStreet.com without the ?mls=yes code at the end. A new window is required because your browser will remember the ?mls=yes until you close the browser!

Single Property Sites make excellent virtual tour links for your MLS Listings!

So now there are four ways to link to your Single Property Site:
  1. Use the domain name you have for the site - shows full branding and contact details
    • e.g http://www.1122MainStreet.com

  2. Use the domain name PLUS the ?mls=yes - shows the site but without contact data and branding
    • e.g http://www.1122MainStreet.com?mls=yes    (or ?mls2=yes)

  3. Use the NATIVE path (click on the the 'connect' link on the Manages Sites page for your site - this shows full branding and contact details
    • e.g http://www.singlepropertysites.com/display/?number=10075

  4. Use the NATIVE path (click the 'connect' link on the Manages Sites page for your site) with &mls=yes - this shows full branding and contact details.
    NOTE! In this case, because there is already a "?" used in the code line for this NATIVE path, so we add the second code with the AMPERSAND character, like this (sorry to make this tricky... this is just the way code gets written!)
    • e.g http://www.singlepropertysites.com/display/?number=10075&mls=yes   (or &mls2=yes)
