Once you enter an Open House in your Dashboard, it can take some time for the open house to appear on public websites.

MLSs require Open Houses to be manually entered into the MLS by HomeLister. From the time that you create an open house on HomeLister.com, it takes up to 1 business day for an agent to post the open house in the MLS.

Once entered in the MLS, some MLSs will still take several hours to post it, even on the MLS website and agent sheets. From then, it will take anywhere from 2 to 24 hours for that open house to appear on Zillow, Realtor.com and other websites. Open house processing on these websites is slower than other types of listing updates, and we have seen it take the full 24 hours for an open house to appear on Realtor.com once it is live in the MLS.

At HomeLister, we require that Open Houses be scheduled 48 hours in advance because of the time it takes for the various sites to update with open houses. If you would like to schedule an open house with less notice, reach out to us and we will make every effort to get it posted for you with enough time for buyers to see it, although we cannot guarantee it will be posted in time.
