This summer, TREB plans to implement new MLS® districts with easier to understand community names.
The current 86 alpha-numeric districts are not only arbitrary, they’re out of date.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.
Re-Districting will allow Realtors to target a searches in MLS® to specific neighbourhoods, replacing the code numbers with true geographic areas, giving searches greater clarity and a tighter focus.
Neighbourhood names will replace 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.
