Adding a listing in FlexMLS is straightforward and simple. Flex’s goal is to help you get the listing in easily, and SCCMLS has worked to auto-populate several data items, as well.
Flex navigation is meant to work top-down and left-to-right. Always begin in the upper left corner and work your way down and over!
To dive into a new listing, click the Menu button in the upper left corner of any FlexMLS screen.
In the Add/Change Section, click on “Add Listing”
Choose your Property Type: Commercial Sale or Commercial Lease
Enter the Listing Member name (add Co-list if applicable)
Then Click the "Address" tab to continue moving through each tab across the top in blue
The Main Fields tab seen in the image below is where you will enter the bulk of your listing data.
Once you're done with the Main Fields tab, move to the Details tab for a few final pick-lists. From here, you may proceed to the Broker Distribution tab if you need to edit the defaults, or you may simply go ahead and "Add Listing" which will publish it as Active, or "save Incomplete Listing"
If you would like to save “Add Listing” to your Header bar menu on the FlexMLS dashboard:
– Click on Menu
– Click the “star” by Add/Change Listing
IF YOUR LISTING HAS SUITES FOR LEASE
In FlexMLS, suites for lease should be entered as individual listings so that they can be tracked for reporting and statistics, and changed to leased or sold independently.
Don't worry! This does not mean that you have to enter several listings over a lengthy process.
You'll enter the first listing in entirety, publish as normal, then copy it and adjust the Unit letter or number, and publish again!
How to Copy a Listing in FlexMLS:
If you'd like to be "walked-through" how to copy a listing, click here for the Guided Help Tour: Copy a Listing to open a new browser tab and instruction bubbles will guide you through the process!
To copy a listing, click Full Copy under Add/Change on the menu.
Enter the MLS number of the listing that you want to copy.
Select the Copy photos checkbox if you want to copy photos, as well. Note Private photos can be copied, but they will not automatically be marked private on the destination listing.
Click the Next button to open the listing maintenance page. Make any necessary changes to fields for the new listing and be sure that all mandatory fields are completed.
Click Add Listing to save the new listing.
