This video will show you how to test your MLS data in CompCruncher.
You will use the "Test MLS" function from the Tutorial menu in CompCruncher and will be asked to select your State and MLS Name.
Then you will import your MLS Export file into CompCruncher. You will be notified of any "Missing Fields" you did not setup in your MLS Data custom export. If you do not see any "Missing Fields", you can continue.
At the MLS Compliance Review Screen, look for any abnormalities in your MLS Data. CompCruncher is capable of correcting the data per your instructions and remembering your corrections anytime you upload data from the same MLS.
Since you are in test mode, your data will NOT be saved even if the close button implies the data will be saved. Corrected data is ALWAYS saved when working on an appraisal report.
