Tip of the Week – Accessibility Features in Matrix
If you’re searching for suitable homes for buyers with disabilities, it can be a tricky task. The CDC estimates that one in four U.S. adults – 61 million Americans – have a disability. Your next client may have a disability and you’ll need to find something that suits their needs.
Fortunately, the NorthstarMLS Matrix Add/Edit system has nearly 20 different accessibility options to choose from when you enter a listing into the MLS. Other agents will be able to search for these when they’re working with a buyer with a disability.
While these fields are not required, we encourage you to complete this field when appropriate. It will spare yourself, your colleagues and most importantly the client your working with a lot of wasted time searching for homes that just won’t work because of their disability.
