Municipalities and Townships
NorthstarMLS has changed its rule so that if you list a property that is located in a Township, you now have the option to select the Postal City for the Municipality field (instead of the Township). You may do this for future listings and for existing Active listings (using the Edit function in Add/Edit). This option is available only for those properties located in a Township.
There are over 700 Townships in Minnesota. Most of them are not known by the public, even in the areas around the Townships. They are more commonly grouped with the nearest town/city which is usually also the mailing address. These Township properties can now be more easily found by and for potential buyers, giving them more selection. The Township name will continue to be reflected on the Tax record (available by clicking the PID Number).
