Real estate terminology can be confusing if you don’t work with it every day. One of the more difficult terms is MLS. This stands for “multiple listing service” and is the database that enables real estate brokers to share the properties they have for sale so that home buyers can search all area listings, instead of just those listed by the brokerage they’re working with.
This helps sellers gain better exposure for their home, which can result in a faster sale and higher sales price than if they had to rely on just the listing sign in their yard and a brokerage website. It also helps buyers by providing them with easy access to more listings than they would have without the MLS.
Not all real estate agents have access to the local MLS – it’s a membership-based program that real estate agents pay to be part of. At RE/MAX Capitol Properties all of our Cheyenne realtors are members of the Laramie County MLS. If you’re interested in selling your home with the power of the MLS and the global brand of RE/MAX, we are here for you!
