Q: If I submit a listing, when will it appear in the Herald?
A: Listings submitted through MAR will only appear in the Friday edition of the Herald. The list is at the beginning of the Herald’s regular real estate section.
Q: What is the deadline for submitting listings to the Herald?
A: Listings must be submitted by 5PM on Wednesday to appear in the upcoming Friday’s Herald. In addition, a maximum of 1100 listings can be printed in the Herald each week.
Q: Why can I put so little information about my property in the Herald?
A: In order to accommodate as many listings as possible in a limited amount of space, only the most essential information about the property can be published.
Q: Why is the required formatting so strict?
A: The formatting requirements are very precise so the people reading the Herald can quickly find the information they want. If everyone entered listing info in a different way it would detract from the overall quality of the free open house listing section.
Q: Can my listing really be deleted for improper or incomplete formatting?
Q: Can I get a receipt or some other notification about the listings I’ve submitted?
A: You should receive a confirmation email containing the information you submitted. If you don't receive this email don't worry. The likely cause is that it's trapped in your spam filter. Try adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your list of approved senders. If you're unsure how to do this you should contact your email administrator or help desk.
Q: Can I edit a listing after I submit it?
A: Currently we ask that you double-check the information you’ve entered before pressing the “Submit” button. Listing information can be changed by special request only if you send an email to email@example.com containing the town/city name of the listing, the street address you entered, and details on what information should be changed. Changes must be received before 4:45PM.
Q: I need to cancel a listing I entered. What should I do?
A: We understand that cancellations must occasionally be made. If you need to cancel a listing you submitted, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Delete Herald listing” in the subject line. In the message body please include your contact information and the street address and town of the property. Deletion requests must be received before 4:45PM.
Q: The listing I submitted didn’t appear in the Herald. Why not?
A: There are four common causes. The most common reason your listing didn’t appear is because all information was not included in your submission so it was deleted. Another possible reason is that your listing was submitted after the deadline for that week, in which case it will appear in the following week’s Herald edition. The third common cause is that we reached our limit of 1100 listings for the week and yours was not submitted in time. The fourth, and least common cause, is that we did not reach our minimum number of listings required to be printed. This occasionally happens on holiday weekends when there are very few open houses.
