Santa Fe Association of Realtors - Data Flipping Between Fields

  • retag add tags

We have been experiencing issues with data "flipping" between fields. For example, we have noticed that data values have been moving between the directionstoproperty and propertydescription fields. We originally thought the issue was on our end and remapped our "Remarks" field to pull from directionstoproperty, after we noticed the switch, but now it has gone back and forth between these two fields at least three times now in the last week or so. Please see the below example of what appears to be directionstoproperty data appearing in the propertydescription fields.

MLS# 201303150 directionstoproperty: PERFECT STARTER HOME OR EXCELLENT RENTAL INCOME PRODUCING PROPERTY right in the heart of the Village of Chama, N.M . House is a fixer upper and is being sold as is but has been occupied and is priced to sell. Property features a site built home and an attached single wide manufactured home.

I notified the System Support Manager (SSM) about the issue.

I reviewed the incoming data, and I see a few things to make note of.

The 'Description' that contains what you have above for directionstoproperty, is coming from LR_remarks44.

The PropertyDescription you listed above, is actually (in the mls) 'Legal Description', not their directions field. The directions field would be LR_remarks55 (Labeled "Directions to Property" within the MLS).

Please let me know if that helps!
