MLS Rules

The Austin/Central Texas Realty Information Services (ACTRIS) MLS enables subscribers to increase their value to the consumer by delivering accurate and immediate market information. Without the accuracy of the MLS, REALTORS® cannot effectively list and sell properties.


Contact the listing agent or broker if you discover a listing containing invalid or outdated information. Agents may also anonymously report violations by emailing
