A New Address for

March 25, 2013  |  by Jess will soon become!

Why the new name? We’re renaming the site so that the public recognizes the information is coming from MRIS and our customers, and with this URL we can better align the consumer website with the MRIS Homes mobile app so your future clients can use either or both for real time local listing information.

How will consumers find the site if it has moved? Once the change is made, the URL will automatically redirect to so your current links will not “break.” Also, we are launching an ad campaign in April to help raise consumer awareness of the site and the new URL. We will be advertising via print, radio, television and Metro trains and stations.

Why are we doing this? Our main goal is, and has always been, to get local eyes on MRIS customers and listings. aims to match buyers and sellers to MRIS customers, and, as always, all leads generated through this website go directly to our customers at no additional cost.

How does this help you? With the support of our advertising campaign, MRIS customers can better compete against 3rd party, national consumer home search sites. As your MLS, we can provide the consumer with something those other sites can’t – accurate listing information in real-time.

What’s next? The name change is just the first part. We want to explore ways from to provide additional value for our buyers’ agents as well. If you have suggestions, please leave them in the comments or send us an email. In the meantime, all MRIS customers should make sure that your contact information, headshot and website (if you have one) are current and visible on the site so potential clients can find you. You can update your information from the My Account page on (login required).

To learn about the benefits provides you, including lead generation, open house advertising and more, join us on April 9th at 9am for Tool Tip Tuesday: The Benefits of!

We are excited to get this message to the public, and we hope you’ll help us spread the word!

    This is stupid, like many MRIS or merriss (I know they prefer to be called Em Are Eye Es), goofs. Good luck with yet another stupid decision. I'm sure you asked agents for input like you always do (Ha!)

    I have used this website for years–bought two houses using the site. Right now it has been redirecting to a "homesnorthernvirgnia" website…which has not been helpful at all. Hopefully the new site will be as user friendly as the last, with the ability to search by county?



  3. Hi Emily,
    That's very odd. I just tried both – that redirected to I then tried and that took me to The site itself is the same, but has a new name, logo, and URL: This happened at the end of March.

    What URL are you typing in? If you can call our support center they would be glad to help you.

    You can currently search by county – just begin typing the county name in the Location bar. Thanks!
