A Multiple Listing Service, Multiple Listing System or widely known as MLS, is an exclusive electronic database of available homes for sale. It’s comprehensive storage of property listings that helps real estate brokers, agents, home buyers, and sellers process a quick and easy transaction. Once listed on the local MLS, your property will get syndicated on several prominent real estate sites/brokerages such as Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia, Redfin, and more. Real estate agents and realtors who use the MLS in the United States are members of a real estate association or National Association of Realtors (NAR). And you have to be a state-licensed real estate agent to list on the local MLS. Homeowners who sell a home without an agent or broker (For Sale By Owner) are now choosing a Flat Fee MLS option to list their property for an upfront, flat fee. For a one-time discounted fee, you’ll be able to post your home for sale in your Tennessee MLS. It’s an “a la carte service agreement” that provides an “Entry Only” service—with additional real estate services depending on your chosen package.
