Upcoming Changes to Flexmls Input Sheets

In the 4th Quarter of 2017, the MLS Committee conducted a thorough review of the Single-Family Input Sheet to remove redundancies and ensure details were categorized under the relevant field. As a result, the MLS Committee authorized revisions to the Single-Family Input Sheet*, which will be made the morning of Tuesday, January 23.

We selected January for making these changes due to the current low inventory and the desire to impact the fewest number of active listings. Following these revisions to Single-Family, similar ones will be made to Multi-Family, Land and Rentals, as applicable to those property types.

There is nothing you need to do to your current listings. When/if you edit a listing after these changes are made, you will be prompted to make edits in any field where there are new/different options for that field.

There are two changes that I think should be left in the input area of the MLS.  Unless there is another field for Manufactured Home and brick siding, I do not think these fields should be deleted.

Under water/sewer - I believe you meant to add SEPT for septic tank - not sure…
