For Buyers

  • Most communities have their own multiple listing service (MLS) which allows realtors from the community to list homes they have for sale. The MLS service is the most common way for realtors from all real estate organizations to share information on properties they have for sale.
  • Real Estate Connections refers to real estate agents who belong to local real estate boards and have full access to all properties for sale on the MLS.
  • Using a real estate agent is much more effective than searching for properties on the internet, as many sites are limited to specific broker listings. Working with a real estate broker will save you time and energy in your search for a new home.
  • Utilizing a buyer's broker rather than purchasing through the seller's broker makes good business sense. The buyer's broker is obligated to you - not the seller. Your broker will thoroughly research the market and assist you with the purchasing negotiations, including researching recent sales of homes comparable to the one you are about to purchase.
