There are two steps for entering Parent-Child listings into the MLS.
- When you start a listing and select the property type, there are boxes for ‘This is a parent or regular listing’ and ‘This is a child listing. MLS# of parent ______’. If the listing has already been submitted, go to the Change menu for either the Parent or the Child listing, On the bottom left is the option ‘Select Children or Add to Parent’. Click on it then follow the prompts. This assigns the relationship in the Flex system.
- To let the public and other agents know the property is entered in different ways, you then need to go to Listing Information in the Change menu for each listing and look for the Parent-Child drop down (on the main fields above the Foreclosure drop down in red). For the Parent, all you have to do is select Parent, then click on Save. For the Child, indicate Child in the drop down then enter the Parent MLS# in the indicated field above.
