South Hill MLS Listings
The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is a group of services that help real estate professionals institute industry cooperation, gather and circulate property data for listing information and offer appraisals for those seeking to buy or sell a home. The listing information on MLS is the exclusive information of the real estate broker that has acquired a listing agreement with a property's purveyor.
Originally, real estate listing information was obtained by manually looking up properties in hard copy books that were published monthly. These volumes were bulky, expensive and required constant revision to reflect updates. Thanks to technology, hard copy information has been replaced by the valuable online tool known as MLS.
Information that can be found on MLS includes the age of a home, the square footage, renovations and upgrades and types of rooms. Most MLS listings also include pictures and links to online virtual tours.
By providing a real estate professional with specific details such as price range, desired location, the number of bedrooms and bathrooms required, as well as the preferred house type and when the move is to take place, an agent can use MLS to perfectly match the homebuyer with their ideal property.
