HOW TO FIND LISTINGS WITHIN A SINGLE BUILDING
There are several different ways to pull up all available listings (i.e. suites) in a single building. You can do a map polygon search highlighting the single building or complex park, or utilize the physical address or parcel ID. Let's dive in...
STEP ONE: BEGIN YOUR SEARCH NORMALLY
Open Quick Search and enter any criteria you'd like.
STEP TWO: BROWSE LISTINGS
When you find a listing that interests you, and you'd like to see if there are other listings in that building, click on that listing to highlight it in blue
STEP THREE: CLICK MAP VIEW & ISOLATE BUILDING WITH A POLYGON
With your listing of interest selected, flip over to map view and add a polygon around that building. Then, flip back over to detail to view the available listings
Another option is to enter the street address or parcel ID into Quick Search, as seen in this screenshot. Then, simply click your view across the top again, to see the same screen as above.
ENTER YOUR LISTINGS: 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!
