The Multiple Listing Service puts your home in front of the largest possible number of potential buyers.
When your agent places your home on the Multiple Listing Service, it will go into the hands of nearly every agent representing active buyers in your market.
Ready to start working with an agent, or already are? Make sure you – and your agent – are In The KnowTM. Here are some important points to understand at the onset of your selling journey.
Many national home search sites are primarily advertising companies, meaning they display properties for sale to attract a large consumer audience. Some of these people are active buyers and some are just casual browsers.
The Multiple Listing Service, on the other hand, is the platform virtually all real estate agents in the market working with serious, active buyers rely on to serve those buyers.
The Multiple Listing Service is also how agents representing buyers get information on how to show buyers homes for sale outside of open house times. These “showings” are done under rules the Multiple Listing Service sets to ensure safety and privacy.
There are lots of home valuation tools online, but these all produce ballpark figures based on data scraped together from sometimes spotty sources.
For the most accurate and up-to-date home value, there’s simply no substitute for the expertise of a real estate agent who’s In The KnowTM. Your agent has access to decades of data through the Multiple Listing Service, which tracks every detail of home listings and sales over the past several decades. That means they can make suggestions based on historical data and current market patterns.
