MRED Goes International

The International property type is LIVE in connectMLS! Listings outside of the United States can be more easily entered, searched and effectively marketed in the MLS.

  • Area 1000 in connectMLS is now only for International Listings
  • Listings previously added in other Property Types in Area 1000 will not be moved. However, you have the option to cancel and re-enter the property under the new International Property Type
