Multiple listing service means that your real estate company offers to split the commission you pay to get your home sold with other companies for selling your home.
By offering them a fee to bring a buyer you will have well over 1,000 agents all trying to sell your home. If your company is not a member of the MLS the only people trying to sell your home are the agents just in that office. Your home is a well kept secret known only to those in that office. We don’t think that is really working for the sellers best interest. We would rather be in the MLS and show your home to as many buyers as possible and get your home sold as quickly as possible. When you really work for your sellers best interest your reputation will grow and success will follow. Make sure to ask as all real estate companies are not in the MLS.
