What is this LVT field I see?
What does LVT stand for? Listing Visibility Type
What is it? This feature is utilized to stop Days on MLS (DMLS) from calculating on listings that are in Coming Soon status. This field will be defaulted to include ‘Market Listing’ and ‘Coming Soon’ and both are required in order for this function to work properly.
Will I need this field for saved searches? Yes, if you want your saved searches to continue working properly, then the LVT field will need to be included.
