Several ways to search presents itself with regard to the local Real Estate inventory. When you are searching on-line for real estate in The Cities within the Santa Clarita Valley, we have entered into answering the Question of “How to Search by Multiple Listing Service, (MLS) number”.
Check out our Real Estate Search engine that complies with the Rules of the Internet Data Exchange. You have to be a real live “local” Realtor to be able to publish the data directly from the local Multiple Listing Services. Realtor.com, Homes.com, Realestate.com, Trulia.com, Redfin.com, Zillow.com and others are not able to participate in that agreement. They are known as Real Estate Syndication Websites.
When wanting to search by MLS number – you have a couple of options. Once you find that number on line that corresponds to a property to want to verify the “validity” of, or one you want to make a move on, you can ensure you are getting the “true skinny” by running the MLS number through a
system that has IDX enabled.
Here are two options. You can go to our REMAX of Valencia CA Website and punch in the MLS number into our Google custom search. If the listing is available, you will see it on our systems. If the listing is not available or you are not seeing it. There is one more option that will be the “last resort”.
Here is a photo of the Search Engine that is drawn from the Complete So. California MLS database located at our REMAX of Valencia real estate search site.
When you click on the photo or the link above, you will be able to see our MLS search engine in it’s “ready to go” form. You will then be able to input the MLS number and see if the listing you are viewing on-line is really available. It may be a hook, a lead generator or being kept alive purposely to mislead the public into giving up their personal and private information.
