Street Name is Important!

We’re having some issues with addresses not being typed exactly as shown on the deed, when entered into the MLS.  First, it should be entered as shown on the deed, not as informally know in the neighborhood or by the seller.  It’s also important (very important) that you divide the address into the 4 parts that might exist when entering – adding the word north in the “Street Name” field, for example, instead of using the “Street Direction” drop-down field causes issues when mapping, linking listings to public record data and previous listing history.  We have to track and find these as they are reported, so you gain nothing if the intent is to “mask” the history – and otherwise just creates bad data that everyone struggles to use effectively.  We appreciate the extra second or two you give to make sure your address is double checked to the deed and then entered correctly!
