My MLS has never had a formal definition for bedroom. Without a definition, the number of bedrooms displayed on a listing has never been enforced. If someone reports a violation to us regarding misrepresentation of the number of bedrooms, they are currently referred to their local association (ARMLS is a large regional MLS made up of several Realtor(R) associations) to file an ethics complaint if they are so inclined.
If we were to have a definition I am unsure how we could enforce it as we will not go out to personally visit the properties. It seems to be a he said, she said isssue.
Our MLS Committe is currently reviewing the bedroom issue and I am looking for any input on the matter.
Do any of your MLSs define bedroom in the Rules, and if so how is it enforced?
