    Heather,
    How far back do our statistics go for this component of the market?

      RMLS™ has distressed information going back to 2010, available in the Documents section of RMLSweb under the folder 1500-1699 Market Action and Statistics Menu.

    This is not a comment about this post, I just couldn’t figure out where to ask. I am wondering if listing carts are something in the works that RMLS plans to add in the near future? Every other MLS I’ve used in other areas has these and it’s the feature and most necessary tool I find amazingly lacking with RMLS.

    I’m glad you are adding search functions to find other agents and their listings. This is another very helpful tool I was amazed was missing as well. Thanks so much!
