How To North Carolina MLS Listing By Owner
The MLS (or Multiple Listing System) is a local database that agents and brokers use to list and find available properties for sale. Only licensed North Carolina real estate agents and brokers have access to list on the MLS. A national version of the MLS for searching is Realtor.com
Realtor.com advertises national TV commercials and this is why it is very important to be listed on Realtor.com along with your local MLS. There are over 600 local MLS’ in the country therefore it is very important that you list your property on the correct local MLS so your listing can be in front of the right buyer’s agents and the buyers themselves.
