In selecting data from FLEXMLS be sure to select the options below:
On the “Status” option select all the Status Options. Additionally, place the starting date of 1/1/2007 in the “Sold”, “Withdrawn”, and “Cancel” Dates. These options will make sure that data needed to create the appropriate graphs, is collected.
You should also make your normal selection choices by selecting other options that you would normally select in doing a CMA.
Once you’ve selected the data, you are ready to export the results. To export the results, select the option as shown below.
Once you’ve selected the ‘Export’ option you will see the Export Dialog box shown below.
On the “2” selection make sure the “Generic Text Export” option is selected. Then on “3”, enter the verification text in the box and then “4”, press the button. You will see the “FlexMLS Text Export” screen.
Press the button and save the file. Your data will now be saved in the file location and under the filename you’ve chosen.
Once you have your exported file, you are ready to run the Neighborhood Buying Patterns application. When you run the application you will need to point to the exported data file, so make sure that you’ve placed the file in an easy to find place. For instructions on how to run the Neighborhood Buying Pattern application, be sure to see the Neighborhood Buying Pattern manual (installed on your desktop when you installed the application).
