Even before the sign is up and the brochures are ready, your agent should list your property with the local MLS (Multiple Listing Service). The MLS is a database of all the homes listed by real estate agents who are members of the service within that region, county and/or state, which is practically all of the local agents.
The Multiple Listing Service (MLS) lists important information about your property, such as the price, square footage, number of rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms, as well as details like the style of the home, presence of central air conditioning or hardwood flooring, and recent improvements. Additionally, photos and a virtual tour should be included, along with a brief description highlighting what makes your home unique.
Agents search the database for homes that fit the price range and needs of their clients. They pay special attention to homes that have been recently placed on the market, which is one reason you get a lot of attention when your house is first listed. Many agents will want to preview the home before they show it to their clients.
When you list your house on the MLS, you can benefit from the large network of local agents who are members of the service in your region, county, or state. This includes approximately 20,000 agents on Long Island alone. By doing so, you can leverage the expertise of multiple agents to sell your house instead of relying on just one. Depending on the size of your community, you could potentially have thousands of agents working on your behalf.
