All New Neighborhood Information – Including Property Lines!

There is so much more to than just the facts and features about a property that you and your clients are looking for. You’ve probably heard this from a client before: What are the property lines for this home? What’s nearby? How easy it is to get around in that area? How long it will take to get to the office from a new home, and what schools are in the neighborhood?

The new HomeSpotter app (formerly known as the “NorthstarMLS app”) has broken this information out to the Neighborhood Tab on property details in the app and this feature is available now. Check it out!


How do you get started with HomeSpotter?
You can download HomeSpotter here or search “HomeSpotter” the App Store for iOS and Google Play store for Android for the free mobile app.  Sign in with your MLS credentials to get started and access agent only information.

Effective January 1, the Saint Paul City Council changed the Como and North End Neighborhoods:

  • A portion of the North End/South Como neighborhood (the portion commonly known as “South Como”) is now a part of the Como neighborhood.
  • The North End/South Como neighborhood has been renamed to simply North End.

Because it is our policy to reflect the neighborhood boundaries established by the cities, these changes are now reflected on NorthstarMLS. All newly entered listings will be automatically placed in the correct neighborhood. All existing listings that are in the portion of the North End neighborhood that was moved to Como have also been automatically updated.

NorthstarMLS has updated its St. Paul Neighborhoods Map with the new neighborhood boundaries.
The maps are also updated on the City of Saint Paul neighborhood websites for Como and for North End. These maps show more detail on what streets are covered by each neighborhood.
If you have questions, contact our Help Desk at help@northstarmls.com or 651-251-5456.
