Street Name

Street Name

Only use the US Post Office assigned address. Where none exists, use the tax record (usually only needed for new construction). Care should be exercised in determining whether a compass point precedes the street name, appears after the name (MLS=Post Direction) or is included within the actual name of the street.

EXAMPLE: South 17th Street in Wilmington: Name=17th. South=Direction.
EXAMPLE: Clancy Drive Northeast, Winnabow NC: Name=Clancy; Post Direction=Northeast
