The Problem

1. Displaying listings that are classified as rental properties shows the expected results:

We get 11 results when showing our “rental Properties” which have the “Property Type” of “Rental Property”
Here’s the URL: https://www.fivestarrealty.com/idx/?idx-q-ListingOfficeID%3C0%3E=274500121&idx-q-PropertyTypes%3C0%3E=615

Displaying listings that are “12 Month” listings, irrelevant of the property type, does not show the expected results:

We get 0 results when filtering by the Property Feature “Lease Term – 12 Months” with and without the property type of rental property selected:
https://www.fivestarrealty.com/idx/?idx-q-ListingOfficeID%3C0%3E=274500121&idx-q-PropertyFeatures%3C0%3E=5956

Displaying listings that are “Short Term Lease” listings, irrelevant of the property type, does not show the expected results:

We get 1 result when filtering with the property feature “Lease Term – Short Term Lease” with and without the property type of rental property selected:
https://www.fivestarrealty.com/idx/?idx-q-PropertyFeatures%3C0%3E=5955&idx-q-ListingOfficeID%3C0%3E=274500121

2. The “Additional Details” section is missing from all rental property listings except C7458017, which is also the one MLS property that shows up with a 12-month filter.


Important Note:

In 2018, a technician helped us setup “Property Feature” codes to let us filter rentals by seasonal and annual. Below are the codes they sent me; this was when I had to type the codes in (one per line) rather than choose from a list of check boxes.

5893 – Lease Frequency – Annually
5894 – Lease Frequency – Daily
5896 – Lease Frequency – Monthly
5895 – Lease Frequency – Seasonal
5897 – Lease Frequency – Weekly

Steps taken to resolve this issue:

  • Confirmed settings as above
  • Adding/removing a “Minimum Lease” term
  • Adding/removing application fee
  • Checked “Listing Type” and “Listing Service Type” for any type of rental options
  • Selecting “Paved” as a “Lot Features” (to see if that activates the “Lot Description” section.
  • There is no “Lot Description” section in our MLS, what we do have is Property Description, View and Lot Features and Other Structures fields.
