An MLS is an abbreviation for Multiple Listing Service.  When Realtors list a home in our MLS area it is 99% plus sure to be placed on this list. This list contains all the information about a particular property including the address, photos, year it was built, size, bedrooms, baths, and even the school district it’s situated within.

This information is shared among real estate agents and the potential home buyers can get access to most of this information  through a real estate agent within their MLS.

Why You’ll Want a Customized Report

Looking for a home can be complicated, especially when there are specific features and amenities in mind.  Real estate agents can create a customized report based on your criteria.  As new listings are added, you can receive an up-to-date report via email almost daily.  Getting this list will ensure that you won’t miss out on the perfect home that you’ve been waiting for.

There are lots of ways to customize your list.  Of course, the more specifics you have, the shorter your report may be, but it will eliminate a lot of unnecessary visits to homes that don’t have the features you really want.

You can get a list customized by city, zip code, or even a specific street or subdivision.  You can narrow your search by price, square footage, bedrooms, bathrooms, acreage, garages, etc.

A real estate agent can work with you and help you prioritize your search criteria.  They can help you decide which features are most important and which ones can be considered bonus options that can be omitted, if necessary.

Customizing your report can dramatically reduce your home search time and make finding your dream home so much easier.
