Here’s Why You Need to List on MLS


Selling a property is always a demanding and stressful event. The rise of the information age has meant that some of the stress can be removed from the home selling process using MLS brokers.

Do you want to find out more about what MLS is and the benefits it must provide to home sellers? Look no further because this post got you covered.

What is MLS?

MLS refers to Multiple Listing Systems. These are privately owned databases where home sellers can list their home property under the approval of specific real estate brokerage. You see, a brokerage is a company that hires real estate agents. These are the intermediary between the seller and the buyer.

Take note that only licensed real estate brokers can access and list homes on MLS. You will find some MLS data that may be obtainable to the public through brokerage websites. However, only experts will see all the access data, including the owner details, addresses, price history, disclosures, sales comps in the area, etc.

The Accuracy MLS Offers

Did you know that MLS databases are known as the most accurate when it comes to property listings? That’s because rules are severely imposed. That goes as far as facilitating charges to members who don’t follow the content and structure rules.
Some of those rules involve:

Photos
The number and quality of photos are mandated, even though that can differ from one MLS to MLS.

Accuracy
The MLS association likes to keep a high level of quality in the information required from location to direction and square footage.

Timeliness
All new listings should be entered at a certain length. Charges happen when a member does not include the complete listing through the deadline. That usually is 24-48 hours once the listing agreement is approved.

What Are the Benefits of MLS?

Are you a seller? Then you benefit substantially from getting access to the MLS through your realtor. Apart from raising your listing’s visibility, the offers and inquiries you receive through it will come from more highly qualified buyers. That’s because the platform is open only to licensed agents.

That saves you a huge amount of effort and time, not just in terms of showings but also in fielding questions and phone calls.

Whenever you show the property, it is a mad dash to get everything arranged and looking clean. You need to high-tail it out of there until the potential buyers have taken as much time as they require to check each detail of the property with a fine-toothed comb.

Imagine if your initial pool of preliminary buyers is vetted through an MLS. It is more likely that you will perform minimal showings before getting a desired off. In short, no more transactions with random people who simply wish to keep tabs on other homes within the neighborhood.

How Can Multiple Listing Systems Help You Sell Your Property Fast?

Nearly half of home buyers go straight to the internet to look for home listings. Remember that many local MLS systems feed into typical real estate portals. Having your home listed in MLS will guarantee you reach the biggest audience possible.
You can choose whether you like to utilize the MLS to sell your property as part of your overall strategy. What about if you are working with a professional realtor? If that’s the case, the service will already be added.

Take note that utilizing a full-service realtor does not indicate giving up a big part of your income from the sale. In fact, you can work with an iRealty Flat Fee Brokerage expert and receive a superior experience from a highly experienced realtor within your area.

What my clients are saying  

I worked with Vanessa a couple years ago to sell a house in the suburbs. Her assistance was professional & affordable. I would recommend her to anyone willing to show the property themselves and will certainly use her again when the need arises. Sincerely, Marc J

We found Vanessa when we decided to sell our house FSBO. We ended up getting our offer on the first day. Many think that this is a simple process, that they take pictures, write up a description and place on the MLS. What you don't see is the amount of work that goes into the process, pulling comps, getting the price exactly right, the negotiating process, communicating with all the involved parties, etc. etc. We originally choose Vanessa based on cost, only $299 out of pocket seemed like a no brainer but what you don't know is that she handles I cannot stress enough that she is your acting broker, you are selling FSBO but she acts and works as your broker. The only difference is that she does not take a percentage of your profits, she only takes her nominal flat fee. It is very surprising how she does this, why she would want to do this. I am guessing it is for repeat business which I am sure she gets a lot of given that she is a true professional and hard worker.

Future home sellers, I want to let you know that I have been very impressed with the professionalism I experienced with iRealty. Vanessa Carlson kept me abreast of the steps required to complete the home sale process. When I had questions she responded quickly and offered helpful advice. She worked hard to help me sell my home. I recommend her to anyone desiring to work with a true professional. Marie Cooper

We wanted to take the time to say Thank You! for such a wonderful job you did in helping us sell our home. Your professionalism and your warmth made it easy to work with you. I have to say that you definitely went beyond the scope of work for us and if that is your company’s philosophy you should be very proud of that. In todays economy, having our house listed on all of the web sites you subscribe to was truly a benefit. We wish you well in your business and will gladly contact you again if we have any other properties for sale. People can’t believe when I tell them how reasonable your service is and the fact that the difference in selling it through iRealty directly vs realtor/broker commissions is huge. It allows a seller to be a bit more flexible knowing that they have that cushion. Thanks again for all of your efforts and we would be happy to serve as a reference for any iRealty prospective clients that you may have.

For 2 years we had our house on the market with a Realtor. We had some showings but no offers.even though our whole house was updated. We decided to try one more time to sell; however, this time we would sell the home by ourselves. A few days after we put a sign on the lawn and on the corner advertising that our home was for sale By Owner we met Vanessa at a home show. She explained her services and she was down to earth and seemed so genuine that we decided to give her a try - especially since the home was still By Owner; we just now had perks of having the home being advertised as if I had a realtor. We had it up for sale for 6 months and had 3 contracts on the home and we did recently close. Vanessa was great to work with and even recommended a lawyer for our closing. The difference was truly amazing. I would recommend Vanessa and IRealty to anyone.

 

~ Cherie and Carl

Hey Vanessa, Thank you so much for all the help you have given me with this property listing. Choosing to use an alternative form of listing service was a gamble, but this has turned out very well. From the beginning the service has been exemplary with a well thought out, well constructed, user friendly web site; prompt replies to my various calls; and above all, truly professional service. I will certainly recommend your brokerage to others. Thanks for everything and please feel free to use me as a reference.

 

~ Denise

Nothing but good things to say about Vanessa,she was very thorough in everything she did. She was my agent on a number of properties and i had no hesitation recommending her to some of my friends.In a tough market her experience and professionalism was invaluable and when i need an agent again i would immediately call Vanessa.

 

~ Vinny

I was very fortunate to meet Vanessa at the right time in this interesting real estate market. Her professional manner and knowledge of current conditions were very helpful in managing a profitable sale. I look forward to working with her again.
