Allow Us To Deliver Even More Value

Starting in April 2023, Stellar MLS will adjust its annual subscription cost to continue providing you with the best products and services. We understand that cost is a significant factor for our customers, and we want to assure you that we have taken this into consideration.

Earlier this year, the Stellar MLS Board of Directors approved a recommendation to increase the annual subscription cost by $150. To minimize your financial impact, there will only be a $50 increase for the current renewal. Any future increases will be evaluated annually. This will allow us to deliver even more value to you and your RE business with:

Growth and Expansion - Increased listing exposure and new referral business opportunities.

Better PropTech - Simplified workflows with tools that talk to each other, making your job easier and more efficient.

Stellar Service - Expert customer service and training teams with on-demand educational resources to support your growth.

Annual Subscription Cost Update
June 2023 - May 2024

*Please note: The cost listed here only includes your MLS base subscription. Your invoice will include additional costs from your LSC board/association.

In addition to access to the MLS, your Stellar MLS subscription includes a suite of products to help you gain leads, efficiently conduct business and more. Please visit the Products page for more details.

While billing deadlines vary slightly each year depending on weekends and holidays, generally, we post invoices the first week of April with an initial due date ~35 days after. The National Association of REALTORS® requires a minimum of 30 days' notice before fees are due, which we exceed. Late fees are then assessed after the first deadline, and approximately two weeks later, unpaid accounts are suspended. While the billing year runs from June 1 through May 31, due to the nature of running a multiple listing service, we collect fees upfront to plan for the upcoming fiscal year and to properly communicate with vendors of the various products we provide.

Stellar MLS extensively communicates billing deadlines. We begin by sending notices in late March prior to invoices being posted, and once the billing period starts in April, we send frequent reminders via email, text, newsletters, and popups within the MLS dashboard and system. Subscribers are responsible for ensuring that they have their most current email address and mobile phone number on file with their local REALTOR® association, to ensure that they are receiving correspondence from Stellar MLS, but we communicate multiple times through multiple channels.

You will receive an email immediately after your payment is received confirming your payment, with a copy of your paid invoice attached. You may also print a paid copy of your invoice from the payment portal.

Yes. There is a link on the home page of our new payment portal that will allow you to view invoices posted prior to April 1, 2023. 

Annual Billing for Brokers

Review and Pay Now

Brokers/Participants will be billed $50 to recover costs of listing distribution and data services. All Participants will be assessed this charge – it includes both distributing listings and using IDX feeds. Brokers of multiple offices only pay the charge once per year (based on broker not on office). Any broker who joins after April 1st will not be billed until the following year. The charge does not apply to MFCRE subscribers.

Coming soon, brokers will be able to view all agents under your firm and process payment via check or credit card. A broker must first share their method of payment with their Agents before they attempt to pay on their behalf.

Yes. To avoid this, the balance must be paid for all agents in your office, or you should inactivate any unpaid agents’ licenses with the DBPR. Once this is done, your LSC/association will need to be notified immediately to ensure that Stellar MLS receives the information and removes the balance from your account.

As a broker, to avoid paying a late and/or reinstatement fee on behalf of an agent, we recommend payment in full before the payment due date.

All unpaid invoices will be moved to the broker's account after the payment due date has passed.

To avoid suspension of your entire office, please make certain that all agents are either paid or inactivated by the final due date.

All MLS privileges will be inaccessible for every member of that office until all invoices are paid in full. To reactivate, all past-due fees must be paid in full.

Your Stellar MLS subscription is much more than access to the MLS. Please visit the tools page on our website
