About This Home
What is the About This Home section?
Each property has an 'About this Home' section designed to give you a brief but detailed description of the property. This description can help you determine if the home is a good fit for your buying needs if it’s the perfect comparable, or it can give you insight into the type of homes in a neighborhood.
Where does the information for this section come from?
When MLS data is available, the “About This Home” section will have the listing agent’s comments. The source for this data can be found just below the description.
Here’s an example:
How do I update this information when my home is for sale?
If your home’s description appears incorrect or outdated, it is best to get in contact with the listing agent. The agent may be able to edit or hide the description on the MLS, which will then update other brokerage sites such as Redfin. It is also important to note that this information can only be manually changed while there is an Active MLS listing for the property.
Where can I find the listing agent information for an active listing?
The listing agent information will always be under the About this Home section on the listing page.
What happens if MLS data is not available for the property?
When MLS information is not present for off-market homes, Redfin receives data from WalkScore.com and Google Maps. We make this information available so you can see all the details of a neighborhood you may be looking in.
Some information that may be included are:
-Last Sold Date and price
-Beds and Baths
-Lot and Home square feet
Here’s an example:
If any of this information is incorrect, such as your home’s bedroom or bathroom count, you are welcome to edit your home facts.
Can I update this section of the property page myself?
No. While the information in this section cannot be edited from the Redfin website directly, if you'd like to have this description removed from the page, please contact customer service, and we will hide the description at the homeowner’s request.
