You went online and found a home you like, only to find out it is in contract, the seller took it off the market, or it already sold. Why wasn't that information disclosed in that nice website where you were scrolling through for hours? Because not all sites are held to the same standards.
What is the MLS (Multiple Listing Service)? An MLS is a private offer of cooperation and compensation by listing brokers to other real estate brokers. They are private databases that are created, maintained and paid for by real estate professionals to help their clients buy and sell property.
Is CLOSER a member of the MLS? Yes, we are! We are members of the Hudson Gateway Multiple Listing Service which covers Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Orange, Bronx, Dutchess, Ulster and Sullivan counties, and of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors.
How does that benefit our clients? Each HGAR member is bound by the National Association of Realtors’ strict code of ethics. We are duty-bound to represent our clients fairly — just the way you would want to be represented. Click for additional information on the Code of Ethics/Professional Standards.
What is the benefit of accessing listing information directly from the MLS? ACCURACY! The HGMLS showcases Hudson Valley Listings that are straight from the source: Local Realtors. That’s why they’re timelier and more accurate than other third-party websites.
After what we discussed, I have a feeling you want to use the MLS for your home search. If so, I would love to help!
