Missing “Home Sweet Home”

Cincinnatians shopping for a new place to live may be missing “Home Sweet Home”!

New listings require lots of paperwork.  Contracts, permissions to photograph, enter the house and more.  One of the most important forms is the MLS Worksheet (Residential Input Sheet).  

The worksheet is the place with all the details.  And when some blocks on the form are left blank it’s hard to find “Home Sweet Home”.

Cincinnati MLS Sheet

Buyers look for homes by searching all sorts of stuff.  Price range, part of town or maybe by the school district.  City dwellers usually look for an area- Deer Park, Mt Washington or Northside.  Suburban buyers sometimes narrow their search to 1 or 2  subdivisions in an area.  Like Beckett Ridge which is in West Chester. 

In order to search for homes in Becket Ridge or any subdivision, the information has to be available in the CincyMLS. Otherwise, buyers and agents searching for homes by subdivision may never find the listing.  Savvy Realtors® and buyers usually know what streets to search.  But leaving key details out of MLS lowers can reduce the number of potential buyers.


Sellers want great pictures and all the details to be correct.  Nobody wants to see an inaccurate count on the number of bedrooms or bathrooms.  But when it comes to subdivisions….well it seems to be a hit or miss data field. 

And in a few years when you call your agent for help disputing your property taxes- it really helps when all the information can be pulled by subdivision.

Give your suburban home a better chance in today’s real estate market by making sure the subdivision field is filled out correctly.
