What is the Multiple Listing Service

the MLS, what is itThe Multiple Listing Service, the MLS, is the warehouse that houses the local real estate listings that are posted for sale by the local real estate agents.

The MLS is owned and operated by the Local Board of Realtors. The local Board of Realtors are members of the MLS. For example, my Team and I at REMAX are members of the Southland Regional Association of Realtors.

When I take a real estate listing and enter it into the MLS it gets published online. It then also becomes available on Realtor.com and on the other websites which are Brokerage Owned and Realtor Operated.

The reason I’m not speaking about Zillow, Trulia and other “Real Estate Syndication Websites“, is they lack the proper permissions to publish 100% of the real estate listings that are posted for sale by Realtors.

You have to be a Realtor to publish real estate listings on your website. But that mechanism is not that easy nor is it a simple process. Here is the verification process in order for me to have SCVnest.com and all of the real estate listings for sale in Southern California.

I must be a California State Licensed Real estate agent.

I must be the member of a Local Board of Realtors in good standing – in my case the Southland Regional Association of Realtors.

I must be a member in good standing with the California Association of Realtors, CAR.

I must be a member in good standing with the National Association of Realtors, NAR.

My Brokerage, REMAX of Santa Clarita, must also meet the same criteria and so must their broker.

Then, once all of those things are in place, I must have an approved website to publish the MLS based listings.

That website, in this case – SCVnest.com has to be scrutinized by the powers that be in order to allow me to get the green light to publish the latest in real estate listings at the moment they hit the market for sale.

We have done the work so you can go to our real estate website and not worry about any of your personal and private information being sold, traded, or given away.

We keep every piece of information, your information, in our secure sites. It’s always protected to our highest ability. I’m Connor and I’m a real person. Call me to see 661.400.1720. I’m a Local REMAX Realtor and Proud to be of service.
