Realcomp’s MLS systems will soon be upgraded to accommodate approximately 50 new data fields and/or groupings of lookup values that span across the five (5) property categories (i.e. Residential/Condo, Vacant Land, Commercial, Multi-Family, Leases).
These new or modified fields or lookup values have either been requested by customers over the last several years, are currently being used by other MLSs that we share MLS data with, or are data dictionary-compliant and supported by the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO). We are pleased to finally be adding them to our systems for your benefit.
Not only will the new fields or lookup value choices appear in Realcomp’s listing input module and interactive profile forms, but most will also be available in searches and displays/print reports.
We've created two documents for you that highlight the MLS system and profile form improvements. Please reference BOTH to learn more about the coming modifications.
1) Realcomp's August 2019 Improvements document (PDF) - this document lists all of the new or modified fields or lookup values that are coming to Realcomp's MLS system. It also includes the applicable categories, field descriptions or explanations, and whether the fields are searchable and/or printable.
2) Realcomp's Updated Profile Forms (PDF) - this document contains samples of the modified profile and status change forms that coincide to the system improvements.
These system enhancements are expected to be implemented before the end of August. Once the modifications are in place and you have familiarized yourself with them, you will want to review your on-market listings(s) and update them to include any new details (not previously available on the forms) via the expanded fields.
This upgrade is expected to involve several hours of MLS system offline time. We will confirm the dates and times of this closer to the actual implementation dates. Please watch for more information to come.
