What Is The MLS Multiple Listing Service
M.L.S. is an abbreviation for Multiple Listing Service.
The M.L.S. organizes all the listings of homes provided for sale through Realtors, coast to coast. Each Canadian province along with the Real Estate board of each province offers this for buyers to look at the various listings.
Sellers get very extensive coverage of their homes for sale, and the buyers are provided with a place where they can look at homes for sale.
If you are a Buyer, you can research all multiple listed properties from all real estate companies in the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board (OMREB) area and make a short list of those homes. This system completely eliminates the need for a potential buyer to check with several real estate companies or Realtors© in order to find all the available homes for sale that may suit them in their area of interest.The M.L.S. system has been adopted in Canada and the U.S.A.
The M.L.S. system works so well that agents, buyers and sellers alike prefer it.
