5. What is the MLS, and how does it benefit me?
A Multiple Listing
Service, or MLS, is a database that makes it easier to reach a large number of
buyers and increase your property's exposure. It's a system which participating
brokers at the real estate board agree to share commission on the sale of
houses listed by any one of them. For example, if your house is listed with one
broker and another finds the buyer who purchases it, they split the commission.
You benefit because more people have an interest in selling your house and your
home is exposed to more buyers since Realtors have access to MLS.
