We are allowed to enter those sales ourselves, as a comp, just using "non agent" as the listing agent and our own number for the selling agent.  I'm sure someone in your office has done this previously, so I would just ask around the office or your broker.

It's likely that the builder does not have MLS access or it would have been listed in ARMLS previously.  Check with your DB - with written permission from the Builder it may be possible for your office to create the listing, add you as Buyer Agent, then close it.

If the property is not already listed in MLS, why can't you put it in MLS as a closed sale? I know w our association/MLS we can, and are encouraged to do so for comps.

1. If you are the buyer-agent, no can do, if it was 'not' listed in the MLS by the listing agent.

2. If the listing agent and/or builder is not a member of the MLS, no can do.

3. If you were the listing agent, it takes a listing agreement.

4. If the transaction has already closed, no can do.

5. I sell a lot of new homes every year, and those are never on the MLS.

6. Read 5. So who cares about your MLS stats.

First you can add it to Zillow and Trulia as the buyer side agent. You do not need them to add anything. You may even be able to add it your MLS as a "comp only" i know we can.

Not sure you can "make" someone do this. Often builders will put sales like this in for comps... assuming they want that comp there. You can ask Zillow to manually input the sale. But why do you care about listing your sale in MLS? That's not a pubic number in my MLS and I don't want it to be... no one's business how much I sell.

We discovered yesterday our MLS which is combining does currently and in the future we can do it ourselves add a sale as a buyer agent, we need permission from the buyer but we can add it as a comp for future reference. We can add our details but the seller is listed as an office that is not part of the MLS.

If the agent doesn't comply, I'd ask the board what you can do.  As far as zillow goes, you can add it in manually.  I have many I represent off market that I do this with.

In our case, if the seller is willing, we can do it.  If the seller is not, we have to honor that position. If the seller/builder has other homes listed in MLS and this is a good comp for him, I cannot imagine why he wouldn't want it shown in MLS.
