Duplicate MN & IA Cities

Over the past couple of months, a group of six Iowa Associations have joined the NorthstarMLS Common Data Platform (CDP) whereby they enter their listings into our database (via our Add/Edit system) but continue to maintain their own separate front-end MLS system. Their listings (mostly in Iowa) are also available to you for search and view in NorthstarMLS Matrix.

As a result of this expansion, searches on City names that exist in both MN and IA can bring back listing results from both states.  Below is a list of the affected cities. If you search any of these cities (or have auto-emails saved using any of these cities), you can ensure that Iowa listings are excluded. On the Search screen, simply select “Minnesota” in the State field. We are working with our vendor on a long-term solution that will not require you to take this extra step.
