What is the MLS system and how does it help me? | Ask The Experts

Understanding the tools used in finding your perfect home is a crucial part of the process. This week, join Joyce Rowlands and Anita Reber as they discuss the MLS system. This system is a key player in both finding your next home and getting your listing in front of potentially interested buyers, both locally and nationally. For the buyer, it makes looking and comparing multiple homes easier, as well as provides a place for your realtor to share homes with you as they get access to new listings.

What is the MLS system?

The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) database allows real estate agents to see all homes listed for sale on the market. The buyers’ agents at Lewith & Freeman have immediate access to these homes, no matter the real estate company they’re listed through. That means you’re not only able to view homes listed by Lewith & Freeman, but all homes in the NEPA area.

Your Lewith & Freeman Real Estate agent will notify you of any new listings that match your interest criteria. You’re able to work one-on-one with your agent within MLS, seeing the homes they gather for you that meet your desired home style, price range, and location(s).

How do I use MLS?

To use the MLS system, your realtor will send you a unique link to a list of homes meeting your discussed preferences. Here, you can save homes as favorites and always view new listings that may be of interest to you. Finding the right house can be a complicated process, but the experts at Lewith & Freeman are highly-trained, successful professionals who work for you. When you work with one of our agents, you’re sure to get the best.
