The Desert Area Commercial Information Exchange has undergone a rebrand as So Cal Commercial Connect (SCCC), your Commercial MLS for the Southern California region! While our MLS still caters to the Desert Cities and Greater Palm Springs area, we have expanded our reach into the Southern California market to allow you to have access to more listings, more coverage, and more exposure for you and your business!
The California Desert Association of REALTORS® is one of only a handful of Associations in the country to have a fully-dedicated commercial resource like SCCC. We are confident that our members with commercial listings are in good hands with SCCC – as they’re still in our hands.
As we mentioned, the Desert Area Commercial Information Exchange has been replaced with So Cal Commercial Connect, along with a new way to access your account and to search for a wider area of listings, with new and improved search functionality.
We are changing over to an upgraded version of our Commercial MLS through Moody’s as of March 14, 2022. Both the old DACIE system and the new SCCC upgraded MLS system will run parallel during a two-week period starting February 28, 2022. During this parallel period, you will see a box with an option to click to be redirected to the new platform to review before the official cutover. This will be available for two weeks.
When you log in starting on Monday, February 28, 2022 through the DACIE system, you will see a box with an option to click to be redirected to the new platform to review before the official cut-over date of March 14, 2022.
Please note that during the parallel period, please do not add any listings to the new system. Any additions or edits to any listings will not be captured in the upgraded system until the conversion period ends on March 14, 2022. Following that date, the old system will go away and only the new system will remain, and you can add and edit listings in the new system without issue.
Here are some things you need to know about this change:
|Username Change||Your username will now be your e-mail that is associated with your account, and your password will remain the same.|
