Flex Quick Tip
January 6, 2011
Check Your Inventory and Year-End Statistics

The MLS encourages everyone to check their inventory at least once a month. Are you being identified as the agent for all your sales? Is your market share being accurately represented? Have you forgotten to report a sale that still shows as pending? Are all those pending listings still really pending? Verify and update your data. To check your inventory, from the menu bar in FlexMLS, go to Statistics > Inventory Reports; click on Broker Inventory. Please make note of all changes/corrections that are needed. If you require assistance please email lynne@metromls.com or fax (414-778-6143) your changes to the MLS. We will verify the information and make the appropriate changes.

Only MLS staff can make changes to a listing after it has been changed to a sold status. Verifying the accuracy of your listing and sales data ensures accuracy in statistical reporting. Sanctions may be levied for inaccurate/incomplete information or failure to report sales. See section 7.0 of the MLS Rules for more information.

Production Report

To run your production for 2010 or any time period of your choosing, from the menu bar in FlexMLS, go to Statistics > Inventory Reports; click on Production Report. Choose your desired Begin and End Dates the report should include. Select property types to be included in results and then click the Next button to display your results.

Local Market Updates and Milwaukee Monthly Market Indicators

Update Tax Information

In December, all property owners should have received their tax bill. Please remember to update your active listings with the new tax information both tax year and assessed taxes. The tax amount entered into the MLS is the gross tax amount taxes before any credits.
