NO APN.? Do Not Input “9s”

Published: May 3, 2010

If a property does not have an assigned APN (Assessor’s Parcel Number), do not use any filler numbers such as “9s” when adding a listing. Instead leave the APN field BLANK.
Do not leave APN field blank when a property has a valid APN. It is a violation of the CARETS Data Integrity Standards. Instead, you must input the valid APN for the property you are listing into the MLS.

Starting May 1st, a revised CARETS Data Integrity Standards and Standardized Rules & Regulations will be enforced.

Example a property without an APN:

  • Do not put any filler numbers such as “9s” in the APN field
  • Instead leave the APN field blank when a property does not have an APN
