What is the MLS?

The MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service. It is the main tool used to effectively advertise homes. This tool is only available to 700,000+ members of the NAR (National Association of Realtors). All information is real time. This means that your agent has access to new homes as soon as they are entered into the system.

The MLS is the primary tool used by Realtors to find homes for their new buyers, and for most Realtors, it is the only tool they need to find the right home for them.

The MLS also provides the biggest marketing advantage in selling homes. This is a sure way to guarantee more exposure for your home.
