  • What Is The MLS?

    Are you looking for a Home or Condo For Sale on Long Island?  In our Long Island, buyers and sellers look at online at MLSLI listings every day.


    So what exactly is the MLS? 

    MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service. The MLS is a service Brokers use to publish their active property listings so potential buyers and other real estate agents can search for them. It's the database of properties for sale in by cooperating Real Estate Brokers, and is a convenient way to know what is for sale of homes, condos, and land inventory.  Brokers cooperate in the sale, in exchange for compensation if they bring the buyer. It's an information exchange between professionals. Each regional MLS has its own listings, and agents pay dues to access and post homes on each one.


    How Do Realtors Lawrence & Sheila Agranoff use the MLS?


    We belong to a system called broker reciprocity. By participating in broker reciprocity, we can display on our websites and blogs, the details of other brokers’ active listings, including home prices, property details and photos, but only if the listing agent supplies this information. Buyers and sellers can work with the professional of their choice, knowing that they have access to properties for sale in the marketplace. The majority of homes listed for sale on an MLS are accessible by consumers and other agents online.


    What Advantage Is It To Have A Property On MLS?

    As a Seller, your property will benefit from the exposure of thousands of potential buyers and Realtors that you would otherwise never reach, locally and regionall. This increases the chance of your home selling and is a powerful tool in marketing your house or ocndo. You don't just have one Realtor working for you, you have thousands of agents and websites where potential buyers can find your home. As a Buyer, you can benefit by having immediate access to listings that are currently for sale, and helps with your house-hunting criteria.  You and your Realtor can search homes by their price, their location, the number of bedrooms or baths, how much square footage of land it has and the school district . Anything that the listing agent entered about a house can be searched, and then your criteria can be narrowed to the homes that best fit your needs. It's probably the quickest way to find homes for sale.


    What Makes Lawrence & Sheila Agranoff Different?

    When selling your home or condo on Long Island, you need all the help you can get. How do you attract serious buyers?  There are syndicated online services that have property listings, but from our experience, we have found that many buyers are disappointed with them. These type of sites can have outdated and missing information. There's a chance you may find the home you want only to find out it is not available, or it's not even on the market. Our Broker is part of the Long Island MLS, plus other MLS services too, so we are able to display all the active listed property for sale. Whether it's one of our listings, or another Broker, we are able to show and sell these properties.


    By using a Licensed Realtor, you are working with qualified and experienced Agents to help you through the complicated process of becoming a homeowner. Don’t be fooled by anyone that makes it sound so easy.  It takes a lot of hard work to be successful.
