The term MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service.
Unless it is specifically exempted, every home listed by a Realtor® will be entered into MLS. The listing agent enters the relevant data about the home for sale online. Information includes the address, asking price, age, number of bedrooms baths, upgrades, lot size and other specifics relevant to the home. There is generally at least one photograph and preferably more with a link to a virtual tour.
When you are working with a Realtor®, they can show you every home listed in the MLS system they belong to no matter which company is acting as the listing agent. This works in your favor many ways. One of which is that when you are sent information on homes from the MLS, you receive a full listing, including the address of the home and the tax information.
It also enables you to work with one New Jersey Realtor® you like and with whom you can build a relationship. In turn, they will get to know what you are looking for and what you have seen. It’s a more efficient way to buy the home of your dreams.
