The Grand Rapids Association of Realtors, or GRAR, is now part of the South and West Michigan Regional Information Center, or SWMRIC.
The biggest change will involve the MLS, the Multiple Listing System, which is how all the homes currently on the market can be viewed by Realtors, Clients and the general public. GRAR was using Solid Earth for their MLS, but to join with SWMRIC, converted over to that system, using Rapattoni instead. And while for the most part, all the listings transferred over, there are still a few gliches being worked on. In addition, the number of characters for property descriptions is also limited to 1000, so many Realtors will need to downsize their comments.
SWMRIC covers available Real Estate in the South and West Michigan counties of Allegan, Barry, Berrien, Branch, Calhoun, Cass, Hillsdale, Ionia, Kalamazoo, Kent, Lake, Manistee, Mason, Mecosta, Montcalm, Muskegon, Newaygo, Oceana, Osceola, Ottawa, St. Joseph, Van Buren and beyond.
