Selling your Milpitas home and the Multiple Listing Service

Selling your Milpitas home and the Multiple Listing Service

Selling your Milpitas home and the Multiple Listing Service 001   The Multiple Listing Service is a proprietary database of all properties currently under an active listing contract in a given area. All active participating agents and brokers who belong to this MLS will have detailed access to current information about your property listing. Typically a buyer's agent searching for a new home for their clients will learn about your property listing through this online database.  

The Good about Selling your Milpitas home and the Multiple Listing Service

In this day and age Selling your Milpitas home and the Multiple Listing Service usually go hand in hand. By your home being marketed in the MLS, this in fact may affect how fast and for how much you can sell your home for. Specially if we are experiencing a sellers market, it is one of the best ways to market your home online and receive a lot of interest on your property because for an agent that's representing a buyer (other than personally inspecting the listing) it's usually the most accurate source of information available online.  

The Bad about Selling your Milpitas home and the Multiple Listing Service

MLS has it's basic platform to market your property and it's up to the listing agent to make the property stand out. Many times the homes don't sell themselves and when not properly marketed by the listing agent it will not stand out. Your property becomes just another home for sale in the MLS.  

The Ugly about Selling your Milpitas home and the Multiple Listing Service.


Selling your Milpitas home and the Multiple Listing Service 002Normally when the MLS is used by the right Realtor or Agent, there is no ugly side, but when all this information is being put together by someone else without proper training the information becomes either misinterpreted or misunderstood. Most information will become convoluted and your property listing gets lost in a sea of information along with other outdated pieces of information.


To recap on Selling your Milpitas home and the Multiple Listing Service, it is exceptionally good to use the MLS when used by the right professionals who understand and know how to interpret the information.
