If you utilized the Spaces/Suites feature in Catylist, please read! These were nested "mini" listings under a parent. You could change the status individually. However, the system was not tracking data that would have provided valuable reports.
In FlexMLS, staff and leadership determined that the best way going forward was to have "Suites" as individual listings so that they can be tracked for reporting and statistics, and changed to leased or sold independently.
What does this mean? Don't worry! This does not mean that you have to enter several listings over a lengthy process.
IF YOU HAD SUITES IN CATYLIST:
These have converted over to FlexMLS as individual listings, which will allow far more flexibility and control over you individual suites for lease.
IF YOU NEED TO ENTER NEW "SUITES":
If you have listings ready to post that you previously would've entered as a Suite, please enter the first listing in entirety, publish as normal, then copy it and adjust the Unit letter or number, and publish again!
