A Look Inside… DRAFT NEEDS UPDATE

iStock_000015463132SmallThe MLS (Multiple Listing Service) is the database Realtors use to find properties.

We us it to find properties currently for sale or may have already sold. We use it to see which were pulled from the market (or never sold) as well as about any tiny fact you you can imagine about a home.

It is also a real time database.

Let me reiterate … it is a REAL TIME database.

What most fail to understand is that while the public search sites are good, they have a time lag between when the property is listed and when it appears on any public search site (Trulia, Zillow, Realtor.com, Yahoo, AOL, etc.) Effectively, nothing happens on the web until the home is listed as ‘available’ in MLS.  It begins with MLS with all other sites lagging. Wouldn’t you like to know IMMEDIATELY a great home has become available for sale? Those who are serious about their search do.

Despite what the online national search sites would have you believe, their information is less accurate (and significantly so, in many cases) in terms of both availability and physical facts. Accurate and fast data make access to MLS critical for a good outcome.

The public can only see what is in MLS if granted access by a Realtor. The tool is called the CLIENT PORTAL and it gives you access to the same information as a Realtor and IN REAL TIME.

The Client Portal (above) looks much like the popular search sites available to the public, except the information is far more accurate and in real time. Being notified at the same time as the rest of the market is critical in tight markets.

The features within the Portal allow you search in great detail and save your progress. It also gives you and your agent a vehicle by which you can communicate, make notes, select favorites and trash others as well as modify the search parameters.

Ultimately, if you seek the best result, then the best information is required. The CLIENT PORTAL is a must-have tool for any serious home buyer.
