Re-Districting TorontoMLS – Coming July 5

April 14, 2011 -- July 5, will see the fulfillment of a major objective: the replacement of our old MLS® districts with easier to understand community names.

Our 86 alpha-numeric districts are not only arbitrary, they’re out of date. Many of them were drawn when places like Markham and Vaughan were mostly rural and not the bustling communities that they are today.

Not only do the current district names not make sense to your clients, you can’t use them to accurately target what your clients want. It is almost impossible to target a search in our MLS® system to a specific neighbourhood which means that many of your search results are not what your client is after.

Re-Districting will solve these problems, replacing the code numbers with true geographic areas, giving your searches greater clarity and a tighter focus.

On July 5, community, or neighbourhood names, are replacing the districts. Their names and their boundaries were provided by government bodies with REALTOR® input. In this way, the names will make sense to the people who live in the area and REALTORS® who work in the field.
