FlexMLS affected 55+ (55 plus) searches – Real Estate News

Flex vs XchangeOn June 17th  in Palm Beach County, Florida, the MLS (Multiple Listing Service ) was changed from MLXchange Service to FlexMLS Service.  This changed the way that realtors look up properties in Palm Beach County.  As a result, some of the features that worked with MLXchange had to be modified to work with FlexMLS.

The IDX interface (the link between any website and the MLS service) had to be tweeked.  Most of the changes were completed by the IDX companies, but for some of the companies a few of the necessary changes slipped thru the cracks.  Ones of the changes that slipped through our IDX company was that MLXchange referred to a particular category as  55+ (55 Plus) For Over 55 communities while FlexMLS referred to it as HOPA (Housing for Older Persons Act).  As a result, our website had several of the 55+ searches become inoperative.  I informed them of the problem and they’ve corrected it.  For those of you who experience problems with your searches, we apologize.  I’m happy to say that they are all functional again.

FlexMLS provides more options on viewing information, pictures and maps.

The Harelik Team website remains one of the most effective Real Estate websites to search for 55+ (55 Plus) communities, all age communities or waterfront communities.  You can search by community, price range, city or by the size of community.  In addition to the searches, there is a wealth of Real Estate Information in the content of the site and especially through our Blogs.

We take great pride in our website and welcome any input (good or bad) as we always strive to improve it.  The quality that we show on our website is the same quality that Candace and I give to our customers.
