RMLS MLS Numbers

The Multiple Listing System numbers don’t tell you a lot about a listing but you can tell more now than you can at the end of the year. Each year, the first digit in the listing moves up one from the previous year. MLS numbers for 2006 start with a six. 2005 started with a five. Each new listing is assigned a number in starting at 6000000. The lower the number, the earlier in the year that it was listed.Portland Real Estate Blog
