MLS – Multiple Listing Service is a tool/ database that allows real estate agents to work with each other in their region to make properties’ buying and selling process efficient.
MLS allows brokers, real estate agents to see one another’s listings of properties for sale with the goal of connecting property buyers to sellers. Under this arrangement, both the listing and selling brokers benefit by consolidating & sharing information and by sharing commissions, even if they work for competing to each other.
The realty business is a competitive, and an exceptional business, in this world the realtors must also cooperate with each other to ensure a successful transaction. MLS system enables that cooperation.
“In the late 1800s, real estate brokers regularly gathered at the offices of their local associations to share information about properties they were trying to sell. They agreed to compensate other brokers who helped sell those properties, and the first MLS was born, based on a fundamental principle that’s unique to organized real estate: “Help me sell my inventory and I’ll help you sell yours”.
The term “MLS” is considered generic in the United States and cannot be trademarked or branded. MLSs can be owned and operated by any individual realtor associations, regional multi-association company or independent cooperatives of real estate brokerages. The first multiple listing services were circulated via catalogues, but almost all of them are online today”. source – Wikipedia
