New Updates
are LIVE!

New Updates include:

  • Modifying Expired Status - Functionality to permit MRED customers to reactivate an expired listing within 45 days of that listing expiring
  • Edit Listing Status (NEW to NEW) - Allows agents to perform a NEW to NEW status change to modify the List Price and Original List Price ONE time ONLY after the listing is submitted into the MLS for the first two (2) days in the MLS. This will allow users to correct price errors immediately and possibly before syndicated out to 3rd party portals.
  • Parcel ID Check for Attached Single Family - A Parcel Identification Number check will be instituted for Attached Single Family properties during Add a Listing and Edit Listing Details
  • Client Full Report - When the list agent views and prints the Client Full Report(s) for their own listing, it will display both the List Agent and Brokerage information on the report, independent of the "Prepared By" information in the footer.
