All MLS properties are associated with an “Area” that correlates to the MLS maps below. The areas are intended to be a useful way to subdivide the city and make it easier to search the MLS. As areas are often the first filter applied in any search, it’s useful to be familiar with these maps as you begin your search. They are generally well drawn, paying attention to subdivisions and neighborhoods, though there are necessarily exceptions. Keep in mind you can always search across multiple areas or discard the MLS areas all-together and search instead by zip code, school district or a multitude of other options.
