The MinimumMatchScore property specifies how well addresses have to match their most likely candidate in the reference data in order to be considered matched. A perfect match yields a score of 100. A match score between 75 and 100 can generally be considered a good match, depending upon the quality of your reference and address data. An address with no candidates with scores euqal to or greater than the minimum match score will not be matched.

The MinimumMatchScore property can have values between 0 and 100. If your application demands that addresses be located with a high level of confidence, you should specify a high value. If you want to maximize the number of addresses that can be matched and don�t mind if some addresses are potentially matched incorrectly, you can use a lower value.
