Measurements in Matrix™

By CREB® Member PracticeJul 17, 2018

Are your residential listings RMS ready in Matrix™? Check out our FAQ to ensure you’re ready for the mandatory implementation of measurement supplements. 

Where do I include RMS measurements in a listing?

Before you activate a residential listing, be sure to upload RMS measurements (or in the case of judicial sales, a copy of the court order stating no property access is permitted) in a measurement supplement. 

Please note, you must still input property measurements on the listing itself. Uploading measurements to a supplement is an additional requirement and does not replace this need.

What do I need to include in a measurement supplement?

The measurement supplement will require members to document all measurement calculations, a sketch/diagram, and relevant notes including the property address, associate name and measurement date for all listings.

When do measurement supplements become mandatory?

Starting Feb. 1, RMS measurements (or in the case of judicial sales, a copy of the court order stating no property access is permitted) must be uploaded in a measurement supplement to activate a residential listing in the MLS® System. 

CREB® will begin to audit residential listings for measurement accuracy after Feb. 1. Non-compliance may result in a possible sanction to the member and the withdrawal of any listing not in compliance.

Why will measurement supplements be mandatory?

Including a measurement supplement will give members line of sight to the measurements on file for any given listing. 

The supplement will support enforcement of accurate RMS measurements in the MLS® System to achieve database integrity. 

Further questions about the mandatory RMS measurement supplement field in Matrix™ and/or RMS compliance requirements can be directed to or 403-781-1336.
