Now that auto-check is everywhere, who needs to know how to spell these days? Well…you do! At least when it comes to working inside Flexmls!
Flexmls is not a search engine, it’s a database. Unlike a search engine, Flexmls will only return results for exactly what you enter in. It does not offer alternate suggestions or search for similar words. For this reason, you need to be precise when searching for properties and inputting information when entering a new listing. One letter, or even a space, can make a significant difference in the outcome of your search results or lessen the chances of your property appearing in a search for others.
You can also consider using a wildcard in your search to obtain results that contain other characters before or after your keyword(s).
Whether you’re listing a property or searching for one, your clients are counting on you to get the best results possible for them. Therefore, spell correctly and input carefully!
Wouldn’t the best practice be to use map search?
A map search is a great way to avoid having your results be skewed by spelling mistakes. We teach that very topic in our Orientation & Searching class and it’s also part of Bootcamp.
