The Role of The Multiple Listing Service (MLS)

What is the MLS, and how does it work for you?
The MLS is a database of properties currently on the market in the area.  Brokers participating in the MLS (which includes virtually all Brokers in the area) list all the properties they have for sale and agree to share in the sales commission of the properties.  This means that if Frontline Florida Realty lists your property on the MLS for you, but another agent finds a buyer for your house, that other broker or agent is entitled to part of the commission. 

The big advantage to you, as the seller, is that every single broker and agent participating in the MLS has an incentive to sell your property.  This effectively puts every agent in the area to work selling your home!  The first place a buyers agent looks is always the MLS.  There is simply no better way to gain instant and widespread exposure for your property than listing it on the MLS.

So, the first thing we will do when your property is listed with us, is get your home listed on the MLS! 

When another agent is searching for a property to meet the needs of a buyer, the agent will search the MLS based on the buyers criteria for price range and features.  We will provide the MLS all the important information about your property, such as the size, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and any special features. And last, but not least, we will take photos of your property and include them with your MLS listing.  Agents and buyers alike are always more likely to look at listings with photos.
