The multiple listing service marketplace connects buyers and sellers of real estate in the U.S. through their respective agents. The MLS gives first-time, low-income and other buyers better access to the American dream of home ownership, while also exposing the greatest number of potential buyers to someone selling a home.

Benefits of the Multiple Listing Service

  • Facilitates cooperation between brokers, buyers and sellers
  • Greater transparency leads to equal opportunity for all home buyers and sellers
  • Easily identify the agent selling the home
  • Creates level playing field between larger and smaller brokerages
  • Serves as largest database of available homes
  • Aggregates most up-to date home status information
  • Maximizes visibility of homes for sale
  • Provides accurate property information

A World Without MLS

  • Buyers and sellers would likely have to pay to list homes on different websites
  • Residents without access to information from certain brokerages would  have fewer options
  • Inconsistent Broker Information in listings across the marketplace
  • Markets become broker-controlled
  • No centralized source of available homes
  • Outdated home status information
  • Fewer homes for buyers to choose from real estate websites
  • Fewer regulations or standards leads to Inaccurate property information
