In our MLS here in NH, it requires us to check the mapping and click ok that we checked and agree.

In my MLS that would be a violation.  It's very rarely out in tract home suburbia for the mapping program to get it wrong.  Usually it's human interaction that moves the pin to the better side of the street or in the middle of the street.

I don't think that most agents even check that. I know that I do. Could give a home a good or bad location depending.

I bet 9 out 10 agents don't even know about it.

Our MLS gives us the ability to post the lattitude and longitude of a home which ups the accuracy when we submit a listing. I don't know about other MLS's, however.

In our MLS the agent doesn't do the pinning Kevin J. May but I think we can move the pin once it's been posted. I'd say it's the MLS software and busy agents who just assume the software put the pin in the proper place without double checking it.

That issue is merely the 'tip of the iceberg' as far as we are concerned. More importantly is the failure of listing agents to fully disclose simple facts like holding an interest in the listed property

OH DO NOT GET ME STARTED!
It truly is annoying.
Our MLS now REQUIRES that we validate the location on map. Thank you Goddess!
NOW, to get folks to make sure the APN (or an attachment if multiple parcels) is in there!

Hi Kevin when I see this I think "now how difficult is it to pin the property to where it actually is............not at the front of the neighborhood or complex.

Kevin, Another annoyance ---wrong driving directions!!

The agent may be outside the county and doesn't know that mapping software may not lead to main entrance of HOA gated communities.  You can always tell, usually on a foreclosure, when agent hasn't been to property and just copied directions from Google maps.

I do get that Kevin! Google maps needs to be updated...they are well behind the times. Recently, a land lot was showing all the way across the county - I had to manually go in and re-locate the pin. It is the agent's responsibility to ensure the pin is correctly placed or an error report is the result here.

Google makes the last step difficult which is a postcard, last time I wait almost 2 months to verify my location.  LINKS REMOVED.

But you can also try by going to help then postcard and then send your pictures or do it by video call
