MLS Listing and Real Estate Websites

As you may know, the MLS is not the same as any public real estate website such as Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia or Yahoo Real Estate. The MLS, or Multiple Listing Service, is an extensive database of properties listed for sale or rent, listed by Real Estate Agents and can be accessed only by Real Estate Agents. Click Here for more information about the MLS.

Most MLS's now share their listing information with the public through various real estate websites. Paraphrased, condensed versions of MLS listings now appear on sites such as Realtor.com, Zillow, and Yahoo Real Estate, who get their information directly from the MLS system. Additionally, licensed real estate agencies, who belong to the MLS system, can choose to display these paraphrased MLS listings on their own company websites. The listings that you see on all of these public websites are shortened versions of actual MLS listings, and are not the full version that Agents belonging to the MLS see, nevertheless they are heavily searched by the public and buyers who are not working with agents tend to use these sites exclusively. Keep in mind that while your listing information is available immediately in the MLS, it may take anywhere from a few hours to several business days before it begins to show on the real estate website's. The timing depends on when and how often each real estate site chooses to update with new information.

Below are some of the places your listing should appear
