Procedures for Entering an Address into FlexMLS
What is the correct address format that I need to use when entering a listing?
When entering an address please use normal spacing – no punctuation is necessary. Street directions are optional, as they do not always apply. Street names should be entered completely. The following street tags should be used. Failure to enter street tags correctly/completely may also result in listings not mapping properly in the flexMLS system or on other web sites.
Avenue Ave Court Ct Parkway Pkwy Street St
Boulevard Blvd Drive Dr Place Pl Terrace Ter
Circle Cir Lane Ln Road Rd Trail Trl
Highways with an alpha character (Cty Hwy B) should be entered as County Road B. Highways with a numeric character (Hwy 12) should be entered as State Highway 12 or US Highway 12. Enter the street name as it appears in the Tax Information records. If the property address contains both a N/S and E/W in the address enter as follows: N12W34467 Main St
Highways named with an alpha character (Cty Hwy B) should be entered as County Road B. Highways named with a number (Hwy 12) should be entered as State Highway 12 or US Highway 12.
Street names that begin with “Saint” (Saint James) should be entered as St James. There should be a space between the “St” and the word James.
Both the United States Post Office and the web based mapping programs used on our flexMLS system, wihomes.com and other web sites expect these types of street numbers to be entered as follows: W230S4521. Note that there is no spacing in the property address number. Also, addresses entered in this manner do not have anything entered into the street direction field. And, in this example, the additional address/unit number field is also blank.
