What is the MLS – Multiple Listing Service?
The Multiple Listing Service is a service that provides a storehouse of properties listed for sale or sold in that Association’s region or area. Usually provided by the local Realtor’s association, the MLS is used by local brokers to “list” homes for sale. This database of properties is accessible to agents and often to the public for the purpose of preparing a home search or CMA. Most services require membership of the posting broker or agent and often provide tools for marketing and sharing these listings.
The Houston Association of Realtors provides a multiple listing service to Realtors in Houston and the surrounding areas. Here is a video provided by HAR to help better understand what they have to offer.
