The Role of the MLS
What is the MLS and how does it work?
The Multiple Listing Service or MLS is a database of properties currently on the market in the area. Brokers participating in the MLS (which includes virtually all Brokers in the area) list all the homes they have for sale and agree to share in the sales commission of the properties. This means that if we list your property on the MLS for you, but another agent finds a buyer for your house, that other broker or agent is entitled to part of the commission.
The MLS effectively puts every agent in the area to work selling your home! The first place a buyers agent looks is always the MLS. There is simply no better way to gain instant and widespread exposure for your home than listing it on the MLS.
How will my agent list my home on the MLS?
So we'll enter all the important information about your home, such as the size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and any special features. We'll also take photos of your house and include them with your MLS listing. Agents and buyers alike are always more likely to look at listings with photos.
