New, Required Metro District Fields Added to Listing Entry
In an effort to provide more transparency and value to the Metro District section of IRES MLS listings, four new fields (one of which is required) will appear when “In Metro District?” has “Yes” selected on listing entry beginning the evening of 01/26/2022.
Found on Step One for listing entry, the question “In Metro District?” has been required since May 2019. With the change coming this evening, when “Yes” is selected the following four new fields will appear.
“In Metro District?” = “Yes”
(existing required field for listing entry)
- Name (will be required for listing entry)
- Fee Frequency? (options to select will be Monthly/Quarterly/Annually)
There will also be an option to enter a second Metro District. The same conditional field requirement and display will apply to “2nd Metro District” fields.
How The Change Impacts Existing Listings
This change will impact existing listings where Metro District is set to “Yes.” When updating information on listings that have previously indicated “Yes” the new “Name” field will be required to save changes.
