Bright MLS was created from a desire to be the change that real estate professionals demand. Now serving an area that stretches from central Pennsylvania through Maryland to Northern Virginia back up through Delaware and the Philadelphia metropolitan area, Bright is the largest MLS in the United States, It provides subscribers with access to listing information for a larger geographic area, modern, easy-to-use systems and apps to serve your clients and run your business, and a comprehensive ecosystem of robust property information and analytics.

Latest Updates

February 12th: Days on Market (DOM) and the Withdrawn Status

As the spring market began approaching Bright MLS heard that many subscribers had placed their listings in the Withdrawn status due to misinformation that the listing’s DOM/CDOM would reset on the 61st day. Bright understands that subscribers were preparing to put these homes back on the market with the intent of resetting the DOM/CDOM.

To reset the DOM/CDOM, enter a new listing. On February 11th, Bright made a temporary change that allows DOM/CDOM on newly entered listings to reset, where the previous listing was:

  • Withdrawn
  • Withdrawn and changed to Expired
  • Withdrawn and changed to Cancelled

The temporary change is only for existing listings that were put in these statuses while in the Bright system since October 1, 2018. This will remain in effect until April 30, 2019.

After April 30, the DOM/CDOM will only reset when the previous listing is Closed, or on the 61st day after it was Expired or put in the Cancelled status, as these are the only true final state statuses within Bright.

Please note: Bright subscribers need to enter a new listing to reset the DOM/CDOM. If you are putting your currently Withdrawn listing back to Active for the same MLS number, the DOM/CDOM will not reset. It will resume as appropriate for that individual listing.
