REinventing MLS

Clients looking for transportation options? Use MobilityScore in connectMLS!

MobilityScore

It was one of the most-requested additions for connectMLS… and now it’s live!

You can use MobilityScore by TransitScreen to help clients understand the nearby transportation options for a listing they’re interested in and choose the best fit with mobility in mind.

The MobilityScore tool displays an address’ nearby transportation options on all MRED listings, evaluating the ease of mobility on a 1-100 scale. Scores gauge public transit options as well as available carsharing, bikesharing, and hailed ridesharing services. The result is an easy-to-understand measure of transportation access that can play a major factor in home-buying decisions.

This feature is available on the connectMLS Modern View in two places:

  • Additional Information
  • “General” section of Listing Details

Along with the numerical score, each listing includes a rating that ranges from “minimal” to “excellent” mobility and a detailed list of its available transportation options (bus, train, carshare, etc). Just click on the MobilityScore to see the full breakdown.

MobilityScore joins a diverse list of more than 20 product and service offerings in connectMLS, contributing to MRED’s goal of providing everything you need to succeed.

Even more connectMLS enhancements are coming, and we’re always open to feedback on how to improve our current offerings. Have suggestions or questions? Contact the MRED Help Desk at 630-955-2755 or help.desk@MREDLLC.com

    Can this mobility score be omitted from a listing?

    The question mark by the Mobility score, can it be omitted? Some agents feel it looks terrible on the listing.

    I vote to giving the listing broker the ability to toggle ON/OFF this feature.
