Thanks to our friends at RatePlug, we have added FHA eligibility indicators for all condos and townhomes to connectMLS

How will you see FHA eligibility in the system? Simply look for traffic light indicators on each condo or townhouse in the system:

  • Green Light - FHA Approved
  • Yellow Light - Property is conditionally approved, but certain criteria may not fit FHA loan approval
  • Red Light - Not FHA Approved

New Help Desk 
Weekend Hours

Saturday Help Desk Hours are Changing

In order to better serve our customers, Saturday Help Desk hours are changing starting Saturday, May 9th. Instead of 10 AM to 4 PM, we are changing the Help Desk hours to 9 AM to 3 PM (opening one hour earlier.)

WHY? An analysis of our phone data shows that a high number of calls come in right at 10 AM when the Help Desk opens. This suggests MRED customers are waiting for the Help Desk to open Saturdays and would be better served if we opened earlier.
