Multi Listing Service get a Major Overhaul Before its Launch Early 2014
For those who are buying or selling a home, the Multi Listing Service offered by MLS Global can be their best friend. MLS stands for multiple listing service and lists every home that is for sale and represented by a real estate agent. In the days before the Internet, the MLS used to only be available in print form, which was bulky, largely inaccurate and often outdated. However, with today's information highway, the MLS is now available on-line and accessible to anyone with a computer and an Internet connection.
What is MLS?
The MLS represents a sharing of information about homes that are for sale. The listings are very comprehensive and allow real estate agents to connect buyers and sellers by presenting buyers with homes that fit their needs and requirements. Agents who represent sellers enter the information into the database and offer to share the commission on the deal with agents who bring buyers to the table.
In the past, the MLS was only available to real estate agents, however in today's environment of information sharing, the same detailed information is made available to the public through online services and feeds. By subscribing to these feeds, buyers can scroll through literally thousands of homes that meet their criteria and narrow down their choices before contacting a real estate agent. The listings are available to buyers the minute they are published, virtually eliminating the lag time between when a house is offered for sale and the listing being offered in the MLS.
One such service is MLS Global.
MLS Global is one of the only truly global MLS listing services available today. Most services only include properties for sale in the United States, Mexico and possibly Canada. MLS Global not only includes these countries but many others such as the Caribbean, the Bahamas, Cuba and more. MLS Global is constantly updating and expanding their MLS service and adding locations all the time. There are current expansions happening in Europe, which have made property listings in countries such as the UK, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Greece and Cyprus available. And Global MLS is constantly looking to add sellers and listing agents to its ever expanding portfolio in order to offer buyers the most comprehensive MLS in the world.
In addition to the addition of many new markets, the Global MLS websites have been modified to add features that not only increase user satisfaction and usability, they have also added features that make the site more responsive to market developments in real estate. Benefits include:
Buyers can now create want listings in order to allow sellers to actively locate buyers
Barter functionality allows buyers and sellers to swap real estate for items of value other than cash.
Because there are commission splits for both agents and sellers, anyone who introduces a buyer may become eligible for a commission payment through MLS Global.
Google maps and social media features can now be embedded into each property listing.
With all of these benefits, it's no wonder our multi listing service website is now bigger better and more user friendly then any other property site around. For more information regarding the services offered by MLS Global, please visit website www.mls-global.com.
