What is MLS?

What is MLS®? – The Multiple Listing Service® is best described as a co-operative marketing system to ensure maximum exposure of properties for sale.  Fundamentally, it is a central registry of properties used by realtors to match buyers with properties for sale.  MLS® is a sophisticated computer database of properties indexed by price, location, type of home, number of bedrooms, amenities and so forth.  Most homes sold in the United States and Canada are sold via the MLS® systems operated by real estate associations across both countries.

The Advantages For Consumers – The major benefit of MLS® to consumers is that it allows the realtor to use his or her skills to full advantage.

 

The main obstacle for any seller is to find qualified, motivated buyers and the only way to overcome this is to match your home with the requirements of as many potential buyers as possible. The MLS® system cuts through the complexities, exposes your property to the people most likely to purchase it and makes sure you won’t waste your time showing your home to those who are not truly interested.
