More Lookups! More Choices! More ways of getting what you want from CARETS Dataset!

Published: September 22, 2008


In preparation of the coming CARETS data, we will be expanding our search options within fields such as Area, City, School District, and various feature fields such as Appliances and Utilities.  These additions will allow you to more effectively search the up-coming robust CARETS dataset which will include listings from the participating MLS organizations (CRISNet, Claw, i-Tech and SoCAL MLS).

Within the coming weeks you will have the ability to access all CARETS Residential and Residential lease listings through Matrix without having to go elsewhere or learn new software.  You will simply have more listings, more data, and more searchable choices in one convenient system.

Following the initial deployment of CARETS these search options will also be made available in Add/Edit so you may also express greater searchable detail in your listings.
