How Important is Your Homes MLS Advertisement?

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Luxury Realty SL2337465

Your homes MLS (Multiple Listing Service) advertisement is very important when selling your home. Your homes MLS advertisement is the number 1 way to get your home sold and the information and photos contained in your homes mls advertisement is what other Realtors® see as well as their home buyers.  Over 95% of ALL homes sold, were in the MLS. Our local MLS in Pasco county Florida contains the MLS listings of 17 counties in the state of Florida. This means that your home has huge exposure throughout the state of Florida and your homes MLS advertisement is very important. 

The rules of the MLS are very clear and experienced real estate professionals like myself will follow the rules but at the same time, we will create a full, accurate and professional advertisement of your home.  One of the rules concerning the MLS is that we are required to fill out a form which contains what we will write in the MLS regarding your home.

 

You as the homeowner are required to review and sign this form so we are fully disclosing to you what will appear in your homes mls advertisement.  (did your agent do that?) I take this one step further. The MLS has different reports available. One is for buyers to see and one is reserved for Brokers, Agents and Home Sellers. This report has all of your homes photos, the public description of your home, the commission disbursement between the listing and cooperating broker and any fees charged in the MLS. I ask you to review this report and sign the bottom as approval. 

You should have the opportunity to see the MLS photos of your home. I send them over to you for review and if you want me to re-shoot any photos I do. You can also see what I write as your homes advertisement to the public. This area is what populates to Zillow, Trulia, Homes.com etc... You deserve to know what is being written about your home and I welcome you input and opinion on my work. Keeping in mind that I work for you, I encourage your opinion on the advertising I have created for your home.

It's so important to have great photos from the beginning, as it's very difficult to change those photos once they have populated to sites outside the originating MLS.

Carol Zingone - Very true. I didn't think of that.  There is a page on facebook called "bad mls photos". It's a hoot.

Since the listings in your local MLS are syndicated all over the internet, I would say the MLS listing is very important. That's why home sellers should expect that their MLS photos are of the highest quality. After all, 92% of buyers begin their home search on the internet.
