Tip of the Week — Bedroom Level Information
About 10% of the listings on the MLS do not include Bedroom Level information. While these fields are not currently required under MLS rules, adding this extra detail can help other agents when selecting properties to show to their clients.
Buyers sometimes have specific requests about bedrooms. For example, if they want the children’s rooms on the same floor as the master bedroom. The more information buyers and their agents have, the better the showings are going to be for your listings.
Including Bedroom Levels can also help with appraisal values. Appraisers cannot use a property as a comp if they don’t know where the bedrooms are located throughout the property. This means that an otherwise good comp, and perhaps the most favorable one, has to be excluded for lack of information.
Bedroom Level information can be input with Add/Edit — bedroom levels will be found under the BEDS/BATHS/ROOMS section (shown in the screen shot below) of the listing when you’re inputting it into the MLS system.
