Map Searching and Accuracy

Searching for MLS listings using a Radius or Map Shape is a popular way to locate properties in the MLS.   Special attention should made during map search when looking for some new construction listings and vacant lots that are not mapped.

Some listings are currently mapped incorrectly in the MLS and could affect your ability to locate valid comparables.  GEPAR MLS is working to improve our maps and address placements in the MLS to reduce the number of errors.  One issue is with new addresses that cannot be auto-mapped by the system correctly and are assigned to downtown El Paso or out of County.  To improve accuracy, listing agents should review new listing mappings to ensure they can be found in MLS maps searches easily.

Please take a moment to watch this video to learn more about map searches, which highlights the importance of reporting accurate map placement.
