I don't think our MLS allows that.... but maybe I'm misunderstanding what you're referencing..... our MLS will kick out a photo with our for sale sign in the photo!!!!! I'm sure they don't allow links to any posts...

Jeff, I don't do that in MLS (we are not permitted to use branded material in MLS - and any neighborhood links would obviously have my branding [my site]).

But, yes, I do add links to neighborhood information in other marketing that I do.  And, in MLS, I add neighborhood CC&Rs, Rules & Regulations for specific condo Boards, floorplan, survey, etc.  The public can't access the pdfs in MLS though - only other agents.

Never thought of doing that but I'm sure it would make the agent seem more credible having known that info. Sort of like a published author.

No.  My market/community blogs are their own entity.  I do not use them in my marketing.  I don't put anything except photos in the MLS.  For anything else they have to go to my site.

We are not allowed to include any "marketing" links. If it were strictly about the community with links to community resources (chamber of commerce, job center, etc.) then it would probably pass the test.
